THIS SOPHISTICATED cable cushion by Lucy Hague is worked in three pieces. First, the cabled front panel is worked in the round and from the centre out. The stitches of the front panel are cast off with an i-cord edging. Then the envelope-style back panels are worked flat, by picking up stitches along the i-cord edging. Finally, after blocking, the back panels are seamed at the edges of the cushion, and buttons are added. The cushion is worked in The Croft Shetland Colours Aran, a new yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners, which comes in a palette of 12 warm shades.

Needles required are DPN’s or circular needle
