Knitter Extraordinaire: Graig (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Using the cabled designs from the tree pattern and the SNA scarf, Graig combined them into a throw pillow. Details can be found on his project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: Knitted throw pillows are a brilliant way to add more knitting to your decor (other than just leaving WIPs around, like I do…) and a small scale way to experiment with more adventurous techniques, like the amazing cables that comprise the tree cable design. Graig did an amazing job of putting together the two different cable patterns – and a seed stitch back, too! The seed stitch panels on the front help balance the design and frame the DNA cable, and which helps make the back of the cushion feel like carefully considered part of the design. The result is timeless and so beautiful.
