Heart Pillows

Lion Brand® Fun Fur®


9.5 sts = 4 inches [10 cm] in St st (k on right side, p on wrong side) with 2 strands of yarn held together on larger needles. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Use 2 strands of yarn held together throughout. When changing colors, twist yarns on wrong side of work to prevent holes.

With 2 strands of MC held tog, cast on 31 sts. Work 38 rows in St st. Bind off all sts.

With 2 strands of MC held tog, cast on 31 sts. Work 8 rows in St st. K 8, place marker, work Row 1 of chart across next 15 sts, place marker, work to end of row. Continue in St st, working chart between markers. When chart is complete, work 7 more rows in St st with MC. Bind off all sts.


With double-pointed needles, cast on 4 sts. *DO NOT TURN. Slide sts to opposite end of needle, p 4; repeat from * until piece measures 55 inches [139.5 cm], slightly stretched (or length needed to go around perimeter of pillow form).


Weave in ends. With wrong sides together, sew Front to Back, inserting pillow form before sewing final seam. Sew I-cord around edges of Pillow. Fluff Fun Fur.
