Cabled Pillows

Make one 100% hand knit pillow or two sewn pillows featuring unique knitted panels.

A 14 inch/35.5 cm square pillow is the frame for a knitted panel featuring intertwining cables. Due to the way the yarn is manipulated, the cables change color.

The knitted panels are made first and then hand-tacked to the pillow fabric prior to the pillow being sewn together. If you prefer, the two knitted panels may be stitched together to create a 100% hand knit pillow with two unique sides. Instructions are given for both options.
