Take 9 strands of the yarn, knot together near one end and plait in groups of 3 strands. Knot together at other end. Plait the other 9 strands in the same way.

Tie one end of the cushion securely with one of the plaits. Stuff and then tie the other end of the cushion with the remaining plait. Trim the knotted ends of the plait.
