Jess's Cushion Knitting Pattern Download
Think of your pillow as a blank canvas and feel free to change the panels to suit your tastes. The front of the pillow can be worked using the chart for the back, and the back can be worked using the chart for the front. And if you don't need a pillow, two or three of the panels with a 5-stitch garter or seed-stitch border makes a great scarf.
