Assemble your Cable Pillow:

  1. With right sides together and top edges even, stitch a running stitch along the top edge of the pillow. Try to line up the cables on the front and back as you stitch across.
  2. Stitch a running stitch along each side of the pillow.
  3. Turn the pillow right side out.
  4. Lay the pillow out with the back (shorter side) facing up and attach 4 to 5 buttons, evenly spaced, across the lower edge of the pillow back. (Hint: try to place your buttons next to a cable because the holes in the stitches there tend to be slightly larger and it will be easier to slide the button through a hole on the other side of the pillow in step 6.)
  5. Insert a pillow form into the knitted pillow.
  6. Pull the lower edge of the pillow front around to the back, line up the cables and button through any hole in the knit weave to close.

Done!
