Adorable stuffed hearts with side piping detail. These make fabulous tree ornaments. Alternatively, add lavender heads or essential oils to the stuffing to make drawer and wardrobe fresheners.
Intermediate level knitters with experience of i-cord and knitting in the round (circular knitting) will find this project both easy and quick. The pattern includes full written instructions.
Use 3.25mm/US 3 needles for your preferred method of small diamater circular knitting.
For one heart you will need 15 metres/16.5 yards of main colour, and 5.5 metres/6 yards of contrast colour in light DK/sportweight yarn. The pictured hearts were made with Patons 100% cotton DK in ‘Red’ and ‘Cream’. You will also need small amounts of your preferred stuffing material.
The pattern is also available in ‘A Time To Knit’ (see ‘Books).
