Show some love with this sweet knitted heart pillow, worked in a self-striping yarn. This is a great first intarsia project (it was my first!). The knitting is incredibly simple, all you have to focus on is reading the chart included in the pattern.

Pillow is worked in two pieces and crocheted or sewn together to finish the cover. Gauge is important in this project to assure the heart is the right shape and the pillow is square, so be sure to check yours. You will need to purchase a 12” pillow insert.

This is my first pattern on Ravelry so please contact me here if you have any issues with the pattern. I found this tutorial extremely helpful in learning how to avoid holes in your intarsia knitting, so definitely check it out if you have that issue!
