Cable Knit Sweater Turned Pillow

White Pumpkins & Pine Cones

Like many people, I look forward to Autumn when the weather gets cooler, the leaves change colour and it’s sweater weather. Last Autumn I was looking to add some texture and warmth to the living room with pillows for our wicker chairs. Realistically I knew that knitting pillow cases would take me longer than I’d want to spend on this project so I decided to use a secondhand sweater. Cable Knit Sweater Pillow

I was lucky and found this grey cable knit wool sweater and was able to stretch it out to make two breakfast pillow covers. The front and back pieces each became a pillow case and I finished the bottom zippered edge with bias tape and zipper.

If you’re looking to add some knitted texture to your living room this was a fairly quick project. Finding the right sweater is probably the hardest part.
