Making a Cable Pillow

This pillow has an inner lining basically to hold the knitted cables firmly in place. Then the outer pieces were sewn on, along with some batting to add loft and a plush feel. 

With throw pillows, the message is all about relaxing. A couch piled up with colourful cushions should be as comfortable as a cloud.

I stitched the knitted cables to the pillow case's inner lining, and then added some batting and red brushed cotton for the outside.

I joined the pillow front to the back along one side with a zipper. Then, with right sides facing each other, stitched the remaining three sides. Flip right-side out, insert a store-bought foam form, and presto, pillow!

Knit three cables, each as long as your pillow. These are in Bernat Roving, bulky weight 5. Cast on 13 with a 6 stitch twisted cable.
