For Valentine's Day I decided to design a Heart pillow. I was originally going to design the pillows to look like candy Conversation Hearts. Once I got started though, I changed my mind and decided to use white yarn for the font (as opposed to red). I also added a scallop border. I think the pillows look like boxes of Valentine chocolates! What do you think?

As you can see, my pink pillow ended up being larger than my blue pillow.

Pink Pillow: I used Caron One Pound yarn in soft soft pink . It measures approximately 13" by 13".

Do not fasten off.

You are now working the "bumps" of the heart. You are working them one at a time.

You are beginning where you left off for row 45.

Repeat rows 1-13 for the second "bump".

When you finish the second bump, continue to sc around the entire border of the heart.

I recommend you block your hearts. I used an iron but you could also use blocking boards. Make sure you use a piece of cloth between your crochet work and the iron.

This step is optional. I think the pillows look adorable with the words but you can also leave them as they are. They look really cute either way!

I used a thicker, bulky weight yarn in white yarn and Surface Slip Stitches to "write" the font.

  1. Make a slip knot. Take it off of your hook.
  2. Decide where you want a letter to begin.
  3. Insert your crochet hook (without yarn attached) through the front/right side of your crochet work. Your hook should poke through to the back/wrong side.

  4. Put the slip knot onto your hook and pull it back through to the front/right side.

  5. Insert your hook into the next space (location is determined by the direction you want your yarn to move). Your hook will poke through to the back/wrong side.

  6. Grab the working yarn with your hook and pull it through to the front/right side. You now have 2 loops on your hook.

      Attach your white yarn to one of the single crochet stitches from your join seam.

      Chain 2, *skip a st, 4 dc in next st, skip a st, slip st in next st* (repeat between the * all the way around), join, fasten off and weave in ends.
