This lovely pillow is so cuddly and fluffy and furry and soft and awesome! Knit it for yourself, or knit it for a loved one to share the love. Each side is a different color, so you can make it for Valentine’s Day, or you can change up the colors to make it your own. The Red Heart Hygge Fur yarn is awesome and doesn’t shed like many fur yarns.
