We all need time for a little calm after the liveliness of the holiday season. Take that time for yourself with our Ribbed Cable Pillow Cover. Created in a soft, fuzzy yarn with a relaxed, flowing cable motif, it’s easy to knit, handsome on your sofa or bed, and cozy to curl up with. We’ve added four fun tassels for a bit of whimsy!

Lang Yara is soft, fluffy and resilient-- exceptionally ideal for a cuddly pillow cover (especially as we hold it double throughout). It’s a clever blend of cotton, mohair and wool twisted around a fine nylon core, with a loosely curled crimp reminiscent of bouclé. The palette of mellow marls--from cream to caramel, from brown to shades of gray--is sure to harmonize with any design style. This knit will leave you feeling contented, soothed and satisfied.
