Knitted cushion cover

I have a bit of a cushion obsession. Our couch has far too many of them. But I like to have a vast number to choose from for various different scenarios. The different coverings give a different feel to each one. So last summer i bought some ridiculously chunky yarn in a lovely purple and went about making a cover for one of our cushions. 

I used a simple 2X2 rib and picked some large brown buttons to finish it off. 

I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Has it washed ok?

Well, I haven't really washed it that much. But it's pilled a bit and I don't know I'd use that yarn again. I think it needs to be a more woven structure, a plyed yarn rather than something that felt fantastically. I'm so going to make another though. Just in a different yarn.
