What a great Valentines day gift, or for anyone you love! Teens love these in their bedroom. Make some for your sofa too. We used Lion Brand Fun Fur yarns, with 2 strands held together through out pattern. Knitting needles US # 9. Finished pillow size is about 12 by 12, but that can depend on how plumply you stuff the pillow. You will need pillow or toy stuffing for pillow. This knits up quite quickly!
