I designed this pattern from a snip it of a pattern I re-found from years ago. I put it together with my daughter in mind. Originally it was going to be a blanket but the points were so defined it just wouldn't work. So I turned it into a pillow! This huge huggable pillow is a favorite in our house and I'm sure it will be in yours too.
As long as your tension is tight for the yarn you are using it shouldn't matter too much.
My measured gauge is 6 stitches and 8 rows over 2 inches
