A TWEEDY Shetland wool brings an appealingly rustic look to the fabric of this cushion by Siân Brown. The cable pattern combines zigzags and columns to produce a lattice effect. The cushion is knitted in one piece, starting and finishing with the moss stitch button bands, and working the back sections in plain stocking stitch and the front in the textured pattern.
