This cushion cover features lots of interesting techniques. There are twisted cables worked without a cable needle on the front and another bright striped slip stitch pattern on the back. The front is knitted in narrow strips, joined as you go to save on sewing up and the finished cover is edged with I cord.

The cabled strip technique could also be used to make blankets or scarves and would be a good way of using up yarn with each strip knitted in a different colour.

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising

Happy Knitting!
