I’ve always thought that simple single-stitch colorwork patterns look like little tiny hearts from a distance. This design works up quickly as a warm gift for your sweetheart – at any time of the year!

I made the red and white “Valentine” set for my daughter, but you can use any combination of colors that has a distinct contrast.

This hat looks like it’s fair isle/stranded knitting, but it uses slip stitches to create that same effect. The benefit is that you are working only one color per round! That means it’s great for a beginning knitter.

The mittens pattern can be found here: Hearts Aplenty Mittens.
