Now, I'm back again to share the full story behind and showcase more project pictures for Dolly's Broken Heart Pillow, the largest of all of my Broken Hearts projects!
Getting my hands on good quality yarns is not an easy feat. Luckily, using Briana K's One Skein to Bulky technique, I was able to convert my cotton thread size 10 to roughly a sport yarn weight. Yay!
I really wanted to play with colours with this one, so I chose three colourways of Circulo Clea Yarns - lavender (6399), pale blue (2137) and dusty rose or coral (3418).
I paired it with my 3.00mm hook, so the stitches would be very tight.
Then the join round and the lacy border round was worked in the dusty rose colour just like the locket, but this time without any necklace chains.
This heart pillow is about 5” (12.5cm) at widest point and 3.5” (8.5cm) tall at the center or 4.25" (19.5cm) tall at full height. It made an adorable doll pillow, but it would also make a fabulous jumbo ornament too!
Purchase this Broken Hearts crochet pattern as part of "Love it up Valentines! January 2017 Get Stuffed issue #2", or wait until April 1st, 2017 when I release the official Rebeckah's Treasures' PDF version, complete with a photo tutorial!
