Valentine Heart Knitting Pattern, Tutorial

Today I have been working on a little pattern for a Valentine Heart and I am so please to be finished and to be able to share it here. It really is the easiest pattern, knitted entirely in garter stitch, flat with the slightest shaping on the sides. They knit up quickly and look wonderful in garter or stocking stitch too, if you would like to add some variation. I embroidered a heart on mine, but you could also embroider the word ‘love’ or someone’s name for instance, too. Ok enough talking from me, here is the pattern:)

Materials:
Red yarn for your heart
White yarn for embroidery
Roving for stuffing
Wool needle for sewing up

Pattern: (Knit two sides)
Cast on 1 stitch.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Cast on 1 stitch with a knitting cast on and kfb (knit into the front and back) of the next stitch. (3 stitches)
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Increase into the first stitch, knit to the end, increase into the last stitch. (5 stitches)
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: Increase into the first stitch, knit to the end, increase into the last stitch. (7 stitches)
Row 7-8: Knit
Row 9: Increase into the first stitch, knit to the end, increase into the last stitch. (9 stitches)
Row 10: Knit
Row 11: Increase into the first stitch, knit to the end, increase into the last stitch. (11 stitches)
Row 12: Knit
Row 13: Increase into the first stitch, knit to the end, increase into the last stitch. (13 stitches)
Row 14-21: Knit
Row 22: Knit 2 stitches together at the beginning of the row, knit until the last 2 stitches and knit 2 together. (11 stitches)
Row 23: Knit 2 stitches together at the beginning of the row, knit until the last 2 stitches and knit 2 together. (9 stitches)
Row 24: Knit 2 stitches together at the beginning of the row, knit until the last 2 stitches and knit 2 together. (7 stitches)
Cast off

Once you have knitted two sides, sew right sides together and leave a little opening for stuffing. Turn onto the right side and stuff. Once your heart is lovely and firm, sew closed.


Sew a thread at the base of your heart, push your needle up throught the inside of the heart and pull it out the top of the heart.

Push the needle back into the top of the heart and pull it out the base of the heart where you started sewing.

Pull quite tightly so that a depression is seen on the top of the heart giving you the wonderful heart shape:) and finish off.
I embroidered a little heart and also added some yarn for a hanging ornamnet:)

Enjoy!

Christmas Wreath Knitting Pattern, Minature

Today I designed a quick pattern for a minature wreath. This little wreath will look lovely adorning your Christmas tree, front door or anywhere in your home. I love hanging these tiny ornaments on our door handles just to spread the Christmas cheer throughout our home:)

Materials:
Green and red yarn. I used brushed Mohair for the wreath and DK yarn for the bow.
2 double pointed needles
Wool sewing needle
Scissors
Pipe Cleaner if you would like your wreath to be stronger, I haven’t used one.

Pattern:
I have knitted this entire pattern with I-Cords, which make it super easy.
I knitted two 10 inch I-Cords for the wreath.
For the first I-cord I cast on 4 stitches and for the second I cast on 3 stitches.

The two I-cords for the wreath, sew in ends.

Sew the 2 ends of one side of your I-cords together.

Twist your two I-cords around one another.

Once you have twisted your two I-cords around one another, sew the other ends together.

Now join your ends and make a circle for your wreath.

With your red yarn, cast on two stitches and knit a 7 inch I-cord. Cast off and sew in your ends.

Fold for a bow and secure with a stitch.

Attach your bow to your wreath.

Hanging on our front door…

Finished!
Enjoy…
Happy weekend:)
