I was inspired by this fabulous cushion from Attic24 I loved the wooly back with the buttons. I decided to make the front using a treble crochet (uk) ripple stripe.
I then used a red cashmere cardigan that had long shrunk too small, to make the back. The cashmere makes a gorgeous soft back, as you can imagine.
I forgot to take a photo of the construction, but I followed the tutorial linked to above. Here is the back with some random buttons that were literally the only buttons I had that were the right size for this project
