Free knitting pattern: Camilla’s mock cable cushion

Source: The Village Haberdashery Blog

One of our stockists, The Village Haberdashery, had their knitting teacher knit up this cozy cushion using our S&S The Chunky Wool, and we absolutely love it! Simple yet classy, it requires single cable stitches and is super quick to knit up. Here’s how:

Materials

9mm needle
2 skeins of The Chunky Wool by Stitch & Story
12 inch cushion pad
3 buttons
Needle to sew up the pieces

Stitch pattern

The stitch pattern is a 4 row repeat.

Row 1: k1, (p2, k6) x 4, p2, k1

Row 2: knit the row

Row 3: k1, (p2, k6) x 4, p2, k1

Row 4: k1, (RT, K6) x4, RT, k1

Abbreviations

K1 = knit 1 stitch

P1 = purl 1 stitch

RT= right twist knit 2 stitches together and without taking the stitches off the needle knit the first stitch again and then slip the stitches off the needle.

Sts = stitches

K2tog = knit 2 stitches together

yo = yarn over, bring your yarn to the front of your work, between the needles, and knit the next stitch, (you will now have made a new stitch)

For more guidance on how to knit the RT, visit the blog here. You can also sign up for classes whether you’re a complete beginner or haven’t picked up a pair of needles for a long time - Camilla is ready to help! Book your class here and you’ll have a cozy cushion before you know it.
