Inspired by the traditional woven paper hearts that have adorned homes during the Holidays, these entrelac hearts are a softer version of the old classic.

Knit them in the tradition red and white colors, or go for a more playful and modern color scheme like in the samples. Or pick two of your favorite holiday colors and have fun making your own version!

There are three sizes to choose from. Hang the smallest ones in your tree and use the largest one as a pillow in your knitting spot. And the medium one could be used as a center piece on your wreath. The options are endless!
