“This minimalist cushion shows off the intricacies of cabling,” says Sandra Nesbitt. “Use bright contrasting colours to create a statement piece or, as we did, knit in two shades of grey for a sophisticated look.” The centre front panel is worked by knitting a standard ribbed cable with a larger number of stitches than normal and by working the cable away from the two side panels, thus forming triangular holes at each side of the cable twist. These holes are filled in with stocking stitch, worked in a contrasting colour and perpendicular to the cable.
