This decorative throw pillow cover features a cable motif down one side of the front and simple stockinette everywhere else. The pillow is worked flat, in one piece. The bottom of the back is worked first in stockinette stitch, followed by the cabled front and finally the top of the back in stockinette again. The sides are seamed, with the top of the back overlapping the bottom. Buttons add a decorative and functional finishing touch.
