Here we are in the middle of another snowstorm and it’s the day before Valentine’s Day! If you are anything like me you may have left the Valentine’s shopping until the last minute. Thank goodness Craig came up with this adorable little heart pattern. Now I can make a sweet Valentine’s gift and have my snow day knitting all rolled into one!
We used Koigu Mini skeins to knit our hearts, but any fingering weight yarn will do. I love the idea of tucking these into a shirt pocket, hanging them in a window or on the doorhandle or making a necklace for your favorite little one.
Please enjoy our free pattern to make your own hearts! Happy Valentine’s Day!
