Instructions:
This cable stitch is worked in a multiple of 8+2
With your yarn and 6mm hook, make a slip knot and chain 51
Row 1: sc in the second chain from your hook, sc in each ch all along. You will have 50sc, turn your work
Row2: ch1, sc in each st across, turn your work.
Row 3: ch1, sc in the next 2 st, *dc in each of the next 6st, sc in the next 2*, repeat from *to* across your work. Turn your work
Row 4: ch1, sc in the next 2st, *(Over the next 6dc you will be working around the post only), skip the first 2st, Now is where it may get tricky you will want to make your next 2 FPTR in the 2 skipped st, you will work behind the FPTR you just made, just push them down slightly so you can get to the post of the skipped st, Make your first FPTR around the post of the first skipped st and repeat again for the second, make 2 FPDC around the post of the next 2 dc, sc in the next 2 s* repeat from *to* across. Turn your work, you will have 6 braided cables.

Working a FPTR
 
Row 5: ch1 sc in each st across, 50sc in total. Turn your work.
Row 6: ch1, sc in the first 2 st, *(you will be skipping the sc from the previous row when working the cable over the next 6 st), FPDC around the post of the FPTR from Row 4 skipping the middle 2 st, you will FPTR around the post of the FPDC from row 4, now instead of working behind your FPTR like you did in Row 4 you will work the 2 skipped st from the front of your work, crossing over the 2 FPTR you just made, working a FPTR in the first skipped st from Row4, make another FPTR in the next st, you will now work a sc in the 2 sc from row 5* repeat from *to* across. Turn your work
(see the 17:07 min mark for more help)
Row 7: ch1 sc in each st across, 50sc in total. Turn your work. Row 8-105: Repeat rows 4-7. Do Not Fasten Off.
NOTE: Row 4 will be worked the same except you will be working around the post of the previous FP st from the row 6 and not the dc as stated, and as you did for Row 6 you will skip the sc from previous row when working the cable over the 6st.
Tip: if the 2 middle stitches are slanted to the right you would skip the first 2 FP st from the rows below, if the 2 middle stitches are slanted to the left you would make FPDC in the first 2 st
Assembly:
If you want, you can sew your case closed. If you do now is the time you will fasten off, otherwise continue below and use the slip stitch method as I did.
You will want to fold your work in half with the wrong side facing you so you no longer have a rectangle but a square, next you will want to sl st your case together matching st for st across, once you have reached the corner you will sl st your cases side together by matching row for row, making 1 sl st per row, once you reach the end and the 2 sides of your case are together fasten off. You will have 1 side left to assemble, take your tapestry needle and hide all loose tails now. With your 6mm hook join your

yarn to the corner of your work and you will want to sl st your case together matching row for row making 1 sl st per row, you will not work all the way across but work 2/3 of your work, STOP and DO NOT FASTEN OFF, turn your work right side to so the cables are facing you, you will now stuff your pillow form into the case through the opening you left, you will now sl st the opening closed. Fasten off and hide loose tails.
As an alternative option to close your 3rd side would be to sew a zipper to the opening, you will need some sewing skills for that. Either option you choose I am sure your Cable Cover is going to look Gorgeous!!!
