Wee 'Lil Hearts

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round, follow a basic pattern

Pattern Description:

This wee heart is knit in the round with 3 double pointed needles. Each side of the heart is on one needle, and the third is used as the working needle.

It is knit at a dense gauge to give the heart structure, and so the stuffing doesn't show! Adding beads is optional... they are definitely fun, but not necessary!

There are video tutorials for casting on in the round over a small number of sts and placing beads here: http://nelkindesigns.com/index.cfm/page/Tutorials.htm
