Hearts Alive is a super quick and cozy cowl pattern that features a simple Heart Cable pattern. It’s knit using 4 strands of a light fingering weight yarn which makes it extra dense and perfect to combat those February winds. The project begins with an I-Cord Cast-on, the cable pattern is then worked in-the-round for a few repeats and then an I-Cord Bind-Off is used to give it a clean edge. Instructions are included for both the I-Cord Cast-On and Bind-Off, so don’t worry if you haven’t tried these techniques yet.
There are 4 size options and all sizes do require 2 skeins of yarn.
The guage swatch that I made was 20 sts x 30 rows for a 5” square. (That way you can do an entire repeat of the Heart Cable Pattern.)
You will need:
- 500-880 yards of a light fingering weight yarn
- size 10 (6mm) Circular Knitting Needles in 16”(20”; 24”, 29”) length
- Cable Needle
- Yarn Needle
