These Little hearts really are very simple and easy to make.
Each heart is knitted in just one piece.

Using simple increase and decreases you will knit a single piece of fabric, which cleverly folds to make a heart. This pattern has detailed line by line instructions and photos accompany every stage of making up.

These hearts are super quick to make-and a great way to use up any left-over yarn. Just 5m of yarn are needed for each one.

If you are using a different weight of yarn just use a size smaller than the recommended needle to give a firm close stocking stitch fabric. Lighter yarn will give a smaller heart (which may be a bit fiddly to sew up up) thicker yarn such as Aran will give a larger heart, why not play with your yarn stash and make a basket full of love?
