Make a knitted heart and use it in all sorts of ways – attach them to a scarf, hat, jacket, bag or any accessory.
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.
