Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • cable
  • yarn over

Pattern Description:

The Rolling Cables Pillow is knit in one flat piece and features stockinette and double rib stitches on one side and an offset cable pattern on the other. Three large buttons keep the pillow cover closed. This pattern uses less than 3 skeins of Thick & Quick yarn and covers an 18 in x 18 in pillow insert.

Although you could use virtually any super bulky weight yarn to make the pillow, I recommend Lion Brand's Thick & Quick yarn because it can take a beating and is machine washable.


8 stitches = 4 inches on US size 13 needles in stockinette stitch pattern.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Before seaming piece together = 18" x 38"
  • After seaming = 18" x18"


  • 3 skeins of Lion Brand Thick and Quick yarn (82% acrylic, 10% wool, 8% rayon) [106yards/ 97 meters, 6 oz/ 170 g per skein], in the Fisherman color-way # 099
  • OR approximately 230 yards of super bulky weight yarn
  • US 13 (9 mm) circular needles, 24" long (or size required to obtain gauge)

  • Tapestry needle
  • 3 buttons (1.5-2in)
  • Scissors
  • One 18" x 18" pillow insert

Suggested yarn:

230 yards of Bulky weight
