Cabled Pillow in Blue, The Mate
This pillow coordinates with the Cabled Pillow in Blue, the Original design. A 14 inch square pillow is the frame for a knitted panel featuring intertwining cables. Due to the way the stitches are manipulated, the side cables change color while the middle cable remains unmarred.
The front side of the pillow features the knitted block. The knitted panel is made first and then hand-tacked to the pillow fabric prior to the pillow being sewn together. The back side of the pillow remains unadorned.
Minimal sewing knowledge is needed to construct the fabric pillow.
Materials:Size 9 needles, Size I crochet hook and a 14-inch square pillow form.
Optional Materials: 1/3 yard of heavyweight fabric (denim, corduroy, etc.), 2 yards of cording and a water soluble dressmaker’s pencil.
