Kiss & Hugs Valentine Pillow

W.E Kiss&HugsPillow

Kiss & Hugs Valentines Decor Pillow

This little pillow adds a little magic to your home or a cute little gift for a loved one. It works up fairly quickly.

The pillow measures Approx. 11inches Tall, 11 inches Wide & 2inches Deep. It is made up in separate panel pieces and sewn together.

Lets Get Started 🙂

What you will need

5.0 mm & 5.5mm hook

Stitch Markers, Scissors, Tapestry Needle

Pencil & piece of paper to keep track of rows 😉

Abbreviations

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

Sl St = Slip Stitch

Notes

In the pattern you will notice a number in front of a stitch called for.. example 2SC, This mean you are to do 2 SC in the same stitch. If the number follows the stitch called for.. example SC 2, this means you will SC in each of the next 2 stitches.

There is no specific Gage for this pattern. Only requirement is you keep the same tension throughout while making the pieces so they will line up correctly when sewing together.

You will need to block the 4 X- Parts of the pillow.. slightly stretch them out. Do this while you are making the long strip used to sew them together.

The Number in brackets at end of row.. example.. (5), is the number of stitches you should have at end of row.

PATTERN…..  

X Panels… You will make a total of 4 of these

Using 5.5mm hook

Ch.16 …. it should measure approx. 4inches long

  1. 2nd chain from hook SC across (15)
  2. Ch.1, turn, SC across (15)

Row 3 – 55. You will repeat Row 2

You should have a total of 55 rows  Do Not Fasten Off.. you will now make a border around 3 sides of the piece.

End of Row 55..

  1. Ch.1, Slightly turn your piece, SC in Same stitch as last SC, SC in each space (hole) across side (55)
  2. Ch.1, Slightly turn your piece, SC in Same stitch as last SC, SC in each stitch across (15)
  3. Ch.1, Slightly turn your piece, SC in Same stitch as last SC, SC in each space (hole) across side (55)

Connecting Strap                             Ch.229

  1. 2nd Ch from hook, SC across (228)
  2. Ch.1, turn, SC across (228)
  3. Repeat Row 2 .. 10 more times for a total of 12 rows
  4. Now you will make a border around 3 sides of the connector, similar to the border on the X. Making sure the long edge has 228 stitches. The Short ends should be 12 stitches each.

Fasten off..

Assembly..

Starting with X pieces..

Using your stitch markers you are going to count down each side, from top & from bottom of piece 20 stitches, place stitch marker in 21st stitch.

Laying the piece with the Stitch markers on top of the second piece.. In a X type pattern. Count down 20 stitches, open stitch Marker and connect the 2 pieces together in the 21st stitch. Do this with all side.

This is how your pieces should look

Now you will sew the 2 pieces together.. going around the whole square part

Do the same with the other 2 pieces

Attaching the 2 pieces together with the long connecting piece

Starting with one X and the connecting piece. Line up the Connecting piece starting in a corner, as in first pic. Then lay the connector flat on top of the X piece, shown in second pic. ( sorry for bad photo, didnt realize how crappy til after I finished project)

Starting from the corner Edge of connector count 20 stitches and connect to 20 stitches from corner to top of X.. See how I have the Stitch Marker connected in photo 2. * Do Not connect to Ch1 corner, that is stitch 21*

Continue to go around X with your connector … making sure to keep your pieces lined up correctly.

You will have 20 stitches on sides, 16 stitches on tops, with one stitch for every Ch.1 corner.

Once you have made it all the way around you will connect the 2 ends of the connector together.

*You will be sewing the Front loop of first piece to back loop of Second piece.As in pick one*

To sew together you will bring the pieces together stitches to stitches, and work from the outside of the X. We do this so that the seem will be on the inside as shown in pic 2. When finished your seem on the outside of the X should look like pic 3

Your X should now look like the below picture

As you can see.. I hide my loose ends inside the X 😉

Now to Attach the other X…

W.EKissnHugs9

As you did with the First X… Starting at the “seem” corner..Count 20, place stitch marker, count 17, place stitch marker so you make sure you are keeping your stitches lined up. It is optional.. but you can attach the top portion to the bottom at the stitch marker locations for added security. I only attached 2 corners at a time.. it was easier for me to maneuver the piece to sew that way.

Use any way that is comfortable for you. After you have sew 2 full piece of the X together start stuffing it. This method makes it alot easier that waiting til the end to shove the stuffing in. It also lets you evenly place the stuffing so you avoid the “bumpy” look.

 

Adding the “O’s”…

Using 5.0mm Hook   *Ch.2 counts as first HDC* Make 2

Ch.14

  1. Sl St into first Chain made… make sure you do not twist the Chain.
  2. Ch.2, HDC 2, SC 4, HDC 3, SC 4, Sl St to Ch. 2
  3. Ch.2, HDC in same stitch, 2HDC in next 2, SC 4, 2HDC next 3, SC 4, Sl St to Ch.2
  4. Finish off, leave long tail for braid.

W.EKissnHugspattern4

Sew 1 “O” to the other with the long tail you left

Weave in the Chain tails

Using a piece of Red yarn and the long tail make a braid… Attach braid to X and tie in a bow.

You know have a cute little Kiss & Hugs Pillow 😉
