Easy, Chunky Cabled Cushion Cover Pattern

Need to freshen up your cushion cover? Well here is a lovely chunky cabled cushion cover.
The finer finishes are up to you, tassles could be added to the corners, or a nice fringe to surround the entire cushion. It does take a bit of yarn, but this gives the cover a bit more thickness and durability.


Enjoy the pattern and feel free to link to me.
