:: Easy Free Cushion Knitting Pattern with single Cable :: Love this!!!
I am a particularly lucky girl. For many reasons, but one of them is my awesome knit bed spread. About 2 years ago, picked up a chunky white knitted cotton bed cover. At Ikea. Nice, you might think. But ‘very nice’ was the price tag of cover with simple knitting pattern: $10! There’s $100+ worth of cotton yarn in there. Yes, I’d found it in the ‘Returns’-section of the shop where you can sometimes find good deals. In perfect condition. Maybe it had been a floor prop, or maybe it was a return. It was in perfect condition.
One thing leads to the next: once you have a knitted bed cover, all you see is free cushion knitting patterns to make some lovely pillows that match the bed cover, right?
The nicest free cushion knitting pattern I have found so far, is ths gorgeous cable knit pillow. Just looking at it makes you feel warm and cozy. Knitting a pillow case is something that anyone can do. It’s basically a square piece of knitwear, measuring about 45 by 45 cm.
Tip: Personally, rather than knitting the front and the back of a pillow, I knit two fronts and use a plain, simple piece of fabric for the back of my pillow cases. Gives you 2 pillows for the price/labor of 1. That’s how I think/work, in any case.
A Yarn about Suitable Knitting Yarn for this Pillow
The knitting pattern suggests for you to knit both the front and the back of your pillow. Int his case, you’ll need 10 skeins of PATONS INCA 50g balls of 50% Wool, 30% Acrylic and 20% Alpaca.
What Can I Use instead of Patons Inca Yarn?
As this yarn has been replaced by newer yarns, you can substitute it easily for a yarn found here at my affiliate’s yarn stash: any Wool Tweed DK should do be just fine.
