Nothing says LOVE like a dozen little knitted hearts

Love is the air,  well hanging in the trees!  For the latest issue of Let’s Knit Magazine I have made not one, not two but a dozen little knitted hearts.   Cute aren’t they?

This is a great stash busting project, the best way to approach this is to choose a variegated or sock yarn as your starting point.  Then raid your stash for three complimentary yarns of the same weight.  This is what my stash dive yielded.

The pattern is written for 4ply yarn, but you could easily work this in DK yarn using 3.25mm needles. You will have bigger hearts! The hearts are worked on a smaller needle size than recommended to keep the knitted fabric nice and dense.

Let your creative side loose, personalise with letters, colour theme to match décor.

I can’t wait to get these hearts back from the magazine and pop them on my tree….. bliss

As always I would love to pictures of your finished projects on my Facebook page.

  1. I love these! There are so many things you could do with them. I’m thinking of making a few stuffed with a bit of pot pourri and hanging them in the wardrobe (or around the house in general). Great little stash buster project!
