The Sweet Hearts wrap is inspired by the classic Valentine’s Day candy: Conversation Hearts.

Sweet Hearts is a rectangle wrap with cute looped heart-shaped stitches and garter stripes in the colors of Conversation Hearts. You can wrap it as a shawl, scarf, or cowl.

It’s so fun to knit the delicate looped hearts in this pattern and they make it a perfect Valentine’s Day accessory. You’ll also love how the garter stitch sections fly by for some fast progress on your wrap.

This wrap is knit in two halves and grafted together in the center so that when worn as a scarf the hearts on both halves are facing upright.
