Knitting is knotty

I recently scored some size 35 knitting needles and I want to knit something with them. I am looking for a really cool pattern that uses needles that size. I do not, I repeat, DO NOT want to knit a poncho. I did recently complete a scarf on them and I really liked how quickly it knit up while using needles of this size. You can check out the scarf here:

Scarves are cool, but I was hoping for something a little bit more complex, perhaps a small afghan or throw blanket. My knitting skills are intermediate (I can do increases, decreases, and most stitch patterns).

I'm open to most ideas, and even if you can't furnish a pattern I am open to other knitted ideas. I just really, really want to use my new size 35 needles to make something wicked cool. Thanks!

maybe you can make a cover for something? like a throw? or a shrug( when i make a shrug i just make a long rectangle that is from wrist to wrist, and then sew it on the two sides and a hole in the middle) you can also make some complicated cables that really stand out too. best of luck on your next project, once you figure it out.

At thedailyknitter.com the pattern listing have the needle size listed, so you could browse through there and see if you like anything. A throw or a wrap/shawl would knit up fairly quickly.

I have some giant needles and I used them to knit a rug for my balcony out of macram yarn.  You could also use thin nylon rope or twine from the hardware store.

I''ve used my 35's to knit a nice lap blanket with Lion Brand's Big (I actually bought them to go with the yarn) and a shawl that's similar to the one you did, the lacy look cause my needles are so huge type thing. Big I think is discontinued now, but I'm sure there's some way to find it on e bay or somesuch

There's probably something deeply wrong about using superglue in bed, but I don't care 'cause I'm a rebel.

One of the first things I knit was a biased garter stitch lap blanket for my Nana.

Nana's Lap Blanket:

Using two strands of yarn and whatever huge needles you have:
CO 3 sts.
K1, KF&B, knit to end of row
Repeat this row until the edges are as long as you want them to be, then:
K1, K2tog, knit to end of row
Repeat this row until you have three stitches.
Cast off.
