Heart Shaped Pillow Pattern Help
For this pattern:

http://www.frugalhaus.com/scripts/pillow.asp

I am confused on:

1. What to do when divide for humps
2. How much to decrease to
3. "Slip sts from holder for opposite side of heart hump. Join yarn at center of heart , on knit side, and knit the first 2 sts tog. Knit across. Purl next row. Knit one more row, purl one more row.
Repeat decreasing rows from * to * above to 7 sts, then bind off as above.
Make another heart side in same manner."
4. What holder? It's not in the pattern tool? :thinking:

They may have neglected to list the stitch holder, but they want you to work up to the humps and then work each hump one at a time. If you don't have a big enough holder, you can leave one hump on a spare needle or run a strand of yarn through the stitches.

Once you have one side 'on hold' you follow these directions:


On these 17 sts only, knit one row, purl one row.
Start decreasing. *

Next row, K 2 tog, knit across, to last 2 sts, k 2 tog.
Purl next row.

Repeat these last 2 rows until there are 7 sts remaining, ending on the last decrease row of k 2 tog each end. * Bind off on purl side row.

Then you put the other side back on the needles and follow the directions for the second hump.

Oh okay

As for this phrase: "On these 17 sts only, knit one row, purl one row.
Start decreasing. *"

For the start decreasing, how much do I decrease down to?

I highlighted the part where it says how far to decrease down to--7 stitches will be left.

okay, just one more question:

is this row: "Next row, K 2 tog, knit across, to last 2 sts, k 2 tog.
Purl next row."

The decrease row?

Yes, you decrease on the knit row, and then purl the next row. Work these two rows until you have 7 stitches left.
