This pattern is available for free.

I was inspired by the look of knitted cables seen in many sweaters or home items. Crochet cables are used to achieve this beautiful intertwined design and the pattern of Cable Diamond Pillow is giving a modern twist to this traditional cable texture. It turned out so stunning and contemporary. 

• Pillow cover is worked in 3 separate pieces: FRONT, BACK TOP and BACK BOTTOM. They are seamed together with a running stitch.
• This crochet cushion cover has four buttons to secure the envelope closure which allows for easy removal for laundering.
• All even rows are single crochet rows and worked in indicated stitches 1 row below.
• All FPdc(s) and FPtr(s) are worked in indicated stitches 2 rows below.
• The number of post stitches is always the same as the number of skipped st(s) so finally the stitch count is the same (82) in every row.
