hi, I am looking for a cushion pattern which uses really thick wool and 20mm needles as I think they are quite fun to use and will knit me up a cushion quickly. Does any one have any ideas- nothing too complex but i would like something a bit more than just a long rectangle which i would have to sew into a cushion shape! I saw one pattern ages ago in a book but i can't remember which one! and can't seem to find any on the web, maybe i'm just looking in the wrong places.
Thanks so much

I couldn't find anything knit with big needles (not sure how 20mm translate to US sizes though), but I found this with bulky yarn.

I think 20 mm is a US size 25 or 35

I did find some books that have pillows in them. If you don't want to buy you might try the library.
