About this Pattern
Knitted hearts are a fun Valentine’s day project and these patches can be used in all sorts of ways. Attach them to a hat, scarf, jacket, bag or any other accessory – make two seam and stuff them to make a little softie or make a few to give with Valentines. You’ll only need about an hour or so for each.
With this project you’ll learn how to shape the ends of rows to create a heart shape. Being familiar with the knit stitch, basic increases and decreases are a big help but not a must for this project. The step-by-step tutorial will walk you through it all.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared for you a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as written instructions to walk you through our knitted heart patch from start to finish.
- Approx 12 yds each heart; Mary Maxim Woodlands Yarn (Color options shown: Cranberry, Stardust & Blossom)
- US 7 (4.5 mm) Knitting Needles
- Yarn Needle
FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
