This knitted heart was easy to make, but I’m not pleased with it, and so I’m knitting another.
It’ll be the third heart I’ve knitted in the past two days. The first my daughter immediately claimed for one of her Monster High dolls. No worries, since these hearts knit up quickly. Creating a simple crocheted or knitted item can be a welcome break from the projects that require your undivided attention, such as the paid pattern test that I’m currently crocheting.
You’ll need to know how to make knitting increases, with this heart, but with the right instructions, it’s fairly simple to complete.
With the third heart, I’m using size 15 circular knitting needles, and a super chunky yarn… I had originally purchased it for a crochet project; however halfway through… I realized I didn’t like the yarn for the item, and I frogged it (ripped out the stitches)… Have you ever had that happen, created something you weren’t satisfied with?
The designer for this pattern, calls it the heart with many uses, and I’d have to agree with her since I’ve already thought of numerous ways these knitted hearts can be used; cat toys, moth repellents, pillows for my daughter’s Monster High dolls, dream pillows, etc.,
