The Heart Hat is knit on circular needles for the majority of its construction. Not only does that mean there is no sewing of seams involved, it also means that you don’t have to switch over to the double pointed needles until the last few inches. The pattern is kept easy by the crown decreases taking place after the last heart repeat is completed.
The embroidering of the hearts – well, that’s where the fun comes in. Looking for a quick reward? Don’t embroider the hearts at all; wear it as is. Want to turn it up a notch? Embroider the hearts in a mess of different colors and yarns.
