Could a knit be any juicier? This big, bright and pip-filled Watermelon Cushion is knitted in chunky yarn and makes a refreshing décor change to perk up your sofa. The cushion knits up quick in acrylic chunky yarns, and makes a great weekend project.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the body of the cushion is knitted on circular needles for magic loop in the round, and the rind is knitted flat on single points.
