Free Crochet Pattern.
A rainbow of different colors (and color combinations) exist for this type of ever-so-soft yarn, however, there is also a color combination called ‘rainbow’ which is quite appropriate for this (and related) Valentine Craft.
Free Crochet Pattern :: Heart Pillow
For this Crochet Project you won’t need much.
This can be a one-skein wonder if you make the back using a piece of fabric instead of crochet. Otherwise you’ll need 2 balls of Lion Brand Fun Fur. I found this yarn in rainbow color for sale online for only 1 cent per skein!
Crochet this on the large hook size I or 9. It’s very fast and easy.
You’ll also need a bit of filling and a needle and thread to sew the front and the back of the pillow together.
Size of Crochet Heart Pillow
Approximately 13 x 15” (33 x 38 cm)
This pattern starts at the lower tip of the heart and then works upwards. Near the top, the pattern is divided into two sides, and each side is worked separately to shape top of heart.

BACK OF THE PILLOW
You can either duplicate the front for this lovely crochet heart pillow, or you can cheat/speed things up by simply using a pretty fabric.
Sew the front and the back together, leaving an opening for filling. Stuff pillow with clean recycled fill materials such as pieces of yarn, fabric or fiber. Sew the opening closed.
