Fiona Ellis


002 Privy Garden Pillow

Says Ellis: "Inspired by the knot gardens at Hampton Court Palace, London, this cabled pillow with I-cord trim will look great in any decor setting." The designer, British herself, is resolutely unique in her approach to stitchwork-- this pillow is Exhibit A. It is unlike any other cabled pillow, and yet serenely honours both its subject and cable traditions. The pattern is terrific, with large charts and lots of detail and tips. Its presence alone will turn any room into your own Privy Garden. Worked in a worsted/10 ply weight.
