(Not currently for sale, but contact me if interested)

The Love of Cables Pillow is something I created to show how much I love cables and love creating new designs with them. Cables form a delicate heart shape with twists going up the sides and across the back. The pillow can be knit as either a removable pillow cover with a button flap closure or a fully enclosed pillow with stuffing. It makes a beautiful accent for the home or a great gift for someone you love!

The finished dimensions are approximately 12” by 12” (30.5 by 30.5 cm).


  • Size 7 US (4.5mm) needles.
  • Approximately 390-420 yards of worsted weight yarn.
  • Cable needle.
  • 2 stitch markers of different colors.
  • Needle to weave in ends.
  • If making a pillow cover with a button flap:
    • 12”x12” (30.5×30.5 cm) pillow form.
    • 4 approximately 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter buttons.
    • Needle and matching thread to attach buttons.
