Friday the 22nd of July 2011, Norway, and my heart, came to a halt as we saw the terrible terrorist attack unfold in Oslo and on Utøya. As a writer I’ve had a hard time expressing myself, but I wanted to find a way to show and share my love and not only for the victims of this tragedy and the people of Norway, but something that could be a tool for anyone wanting to express their love and support.
That’s why I’ve made a knitting pattern for a tiny stuffed heart and shared it under the Creative Commons License Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0), so that people could tweak it and keep on sharing the love.
After the events in the UK the last days I also added two Lovedon charts, and two more charts from designer Petra Thiemer. I decided to redo the pattern into an ebook, so that all designers would get proper credit for their work.
If you’ve made your own charts from this pattern and want us to include it in this ebook, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
