I guess everyone has at some point found themselves drawing hearts, the both rounded and edgy shape is addictive for many reasons. Hearts lined up together make me think of baking cookies but let’s try to make a shawl instead!

This triangular shawl has increases built into the hearts making the center stitch less pronounced. Yarn requirements are variable since the number of repeats can be changed. The pattern is charted, wrong side rows are a combination of knits and purls.

Vermillion shawl used 1.2 skeins Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light 100% merino, 420 yd/384 m per 100g skein on 3.75 mm (US 5) needles. Gauge: 20 stitches = 10 cm in Hearts and Purls. Blocked size A x B: 130 x 58 cm (51 x 23 inches).

Fuchsia shawl used 1 skein Malabrigo lace 100% Merino, 470 yd/430 m per 50g on 3.5 mm (US 4) needles. Gauge: 22 stitches = 10 cm in Hearts and Purls. Blocked size A x B: 70 x 145 cm (28 x 57 inches).
