Notes:

  • This pillow is crocheted using the tapestry crochet technique
  • You can carry the unused yarn color under the active yarn stitches or you can use floats and catch the yarn under 1 stitch every few stitches.
  • You do not need to carry the Color of the Heart all the way to the end of the row. Just drop it after the last stitch of the heart in that row and pick it back up in the next row when you start the heart again.
  • If you are following along with the graph at the end of the written instructions, start where the arrow indicates, and each square represents 1 sc st.
  • When you are changing color, make sure the color changes happen on the same side of the panel each time, this will become the Wrong Side which will be the inside of the pillow.
