Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “This incredibly soft, luxurious pillow is my tribute to the day that two women - both yarn industry professionals - met and shared their hearts. The silk of the yarn and the beads that embellish it are precious, but the time spent with someone who cares about your heart is priceless.”
