BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.
When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

These celestial pillows sponsored by Lion Brand are just adorable. Even without the stitching for the verbiage, twinkle, twinkle, little star they could easily made a great addition to a baby or toddler's room.

If the theme for a baby's nursery is celestial in any fashion this would be well appreciated.If you have the time, creating a baby blanket in the same hues or contrasting would make the baby shower gift just that much more appreciated.

Can't find the pattern for the twinkle pillows... it take you to another site and there is still no pattern!
