Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Garter (knit) Stitch

Pattern Description:

Knit your own love heart. This kitsch knitted heart, with little knitted wings to help love fly makes a great Valentine or Christmas tree decoration. The hearts can also be knitted without wings.

I find this a quick, addictive knit and a great excuse to play with sparkly yarn.

For an ADVENTUROUS BEGINNER knitter using the technique of short row shaping (fully explained in the pattern). The heart is knitted flat and only has one small sewn seam.
