Heart Shaped Throw Pillow

Using giant needles, and double stranded yarn ( two strands of yarn held together throughout) this knit throw pillow works up really fast.  The increases and decreases handle all of the shaping – and once you’re done, stuff it with your preferred pillow or toy stuffing material.

About the Hand Knit Gingerbread Man Pattern

I have made this pattern beginner friendly by designing the entire project to be worked flat – that means that you need not get intimidated by those double pointed needles.  Becasue a gingerbread man has so many parts ( who knew, right?) the pattern may seem a bit longer than my usual ones.  Hang in there, and just follow along.  It will all turn out.  And this is a stash buster project!
