Garter Cushion Cover

Hi, I eventually got a cushion filler for my knitted cushion cover. I knit it on my garter carriage in double knitting yarn using the Brother Stitchworld Pattern no 468 on my standard gauge machine.  I cast on 104 stitches and knit 176 rows. I then put a marker on each end of the row and knit another 176 rows.  Then I folded it in half and sewed up the 3 sides.  I was really pleased with the result and as the yarn is double knitting, it is nice and thick.  I have seen knitted cushion covers in the shops, so they are very much in fashion.  I will have to do some more and it is a good way to use up my stash of DK wool.
