Knitted Valentine's Day Heart Pillow Pattern

Here is one of my cats, Tiger, modeling the Pillow Talk Valentine's Day Pillow!

This is a quick, easy project.  I used Christmas Red and White Cascade 220 yarn, but you can use any colors you like.  The heart used about 160 yards of yarn total. This is stuffed with polyester poly fill; I put as much in as I could, which is about 2 oz. but you can use more or less.  The letters are added with duplicate stitch using a few scant yards of scrap yarn.

If you don't know how to do duplicate stitch, you can find a video on my YouTube Channel.

The pattern is available for purchase from my Craftsy store.  The charted letters are included with the pattern.   Click on the picture below to go directly to my Craftsy store and purchase the pattern.

Shadow Knitting: 1st Mystery Knitting Project is done!

Ok, here is the picture of the completed item. This was my first real attempt at shadow knitting.  Much easier than I expected, but it does take some thought when charting out the pattern.  I've been using mine as a large coaster, but it really is meant to go on my counter whenever I have something from the oven that needs to cool down.  This will come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner this year because I always seem to run out of potholders/dishtowels to set my hot dishes on.  If you made this as well, I hope you had fun knitting and like the end result.  I will have a new mystery project around the middle of December, so be sure to check back!
Pattern for the Heart Shadow Hot Pad is below the picture.
