Winged Heart Pillows

Lion Brand« Festive Fur - Glitterspun®

GAUGE:

22 sts and 16 rows to 4in.[10cm] over St st using larger needles and Festive Fur.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Winged Heart Pillows Reviewed by Karen Jones on 2012-02-05 ****
Hi, I saw the heart pillow,and as Valentines Day is very close, I did not want the wings, so knitted the pillow without wings. I found the pattern very easy to follow and the project did not take very long to do.
One problem I found was in the pattern at the end of increasing it states that you should have 52 stitches on your needles when in fact you have 50, and the following row needs only 50 stitches also.
A good pattern and I will make more.
Thank you Lion Brand
