A smart pattern of rope cables, worked in two colours upon a striped background, forms the central decorative panel on this cushion cover.

Sandra Nesbitt’s design is formed from one front piece and two overlapping back pieces, and is knitted in a smooth aran-weight wool.

The front piece incorporates a Fair Isle cable centre panel which is worked in two colours, and the rest is worked in stocking stitch.
The two yarns need to be twisted as with the intarsia technique before working on the centre panel, to avoid holes appearing.
