Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cable knitting
  • Buttonholes
  • Ribbing

I designed this 18" x 18" cushion cover using a bulky /#5 yarn. The envelope closure is secured with three buttons allowing for easy removal to change your decor or for hand washing. Both front and back are visually appealing. Just turn over for a different look.

If you are familiar with using a cable needle and working buttonholes you should have no trouble with this pattern. It has two different cable elements with a 16 row repeat. The pattern has row by row instructions, not a chart.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 18"x18" (46x46 cm)


  • 1 pair 6.5mm/US10.5/UK3 needles
  • 1 pair 8mm/US11/UK1 needle
  • Cable needle

You Will Also Need:

  • Large-eyed blunt sewing needle

Suggested yarn:

325 yards of Chunky weight
