Carnival Heart Pillow (US version)
PLEASE NOTE: THIS PATTERN IS NO LONGER UPDATED, the updated version is now included in the Carnival Heart Pillow pattern.
This pattern has both a graph pattern to follow as well as the full written pattern.
It is made using sc stitches with James C Brett ‘Party Time’ and Paintbox Simply Chunky yarns, as well as a 6mm hook.
The pillow is approximately 42cm wide by 40cm tall or 51st by 50st. You can either stuff it or use a readymade cushion pad for inside, I would recommend a cushion pad. For a firmer pillow I would recommend a 45cm by 45cm cushion pad or for a softer, lighter pillow you should use 40cm by 40cm cushion pad.
I named it the Carnival Heart Pillow because the colours make me think of a bright carnival or circus. They are bold but still blend well together as the oranges are almost identical in both yarns which gives it a subtle pattern and a decorative border.
