This 18"x18" (46 X 46cm) pillow cover pattern is the ideal way to use your beginner cable expertise to produce a great item for your home. This is the classic cable design that you see on so many sweaters, hats and scarves. I think it works perfectly as a pillow cover! It would look great in just about any color, and on a pair of pillows too! If you are familiar with using a cable needle you should have no trouble with this pattern.

Originally from the UK, and after almost 13 years in Texas, I now live in beautiful Colorado with my husband and sons. Easily outnumbered by boys in my house, I am queen of my little realm, hence the title Ladyship! Ever since my Mum taught me to knit and sew I have loved the creative process and experimenting with design. I find pillow covers to be the perfect way to combine my love of design and the textures that can be created with a single strand of yarn. I especially love experimenting with cable patterns.
