HEARTSY is a little treat to knit with cute heart shaped lace motifs, bobbles and some tiny twisted stitch cables. Each element is uncomplicated on its own but they play well together making it quite a gratifying knit and a cute addition to your wardrobe.

Bobbles are made with a crochet hook and my testers found them absolutely delightful. Little twisted cables are pretty intuitive too.

This pattern features a heart- shaped lace motif with bobbles which flows into an interesting crown.
