Valentine’s DIY – Mini Knitted Hearts

Today’s tutorial is for all you knitters, and is a pattern for mini knitted hearts. A handful of these make a super cute Valentine’s present, or they’d make a great chocolate box topper. I’m not the most experienced knitter, and patterns confuse me. So I just experimented and this is what came out! If you knit some of these I would LOVE to see your photos :)

row 3: k2 tog, k5 and turn, leaving remaining 7 st on the needle

CO 4 st, cut a long piece of wool (about 10″) and weave through back of piece to reattach to other side (where you left off when turning)

Repeat the above pattern for opposite side of heart. With the wrong sides facing, sew together the two hearts, and stuff before the last few stitches.
