On the ninth day of Knitmas…

Day Nine – Lonely Hearts

Did you knit along with us last Valentine’s Day? We knitted a chunky Lonely Hearts hat using this subtle heart motif. Created with purl stitches on a background of Stockinette, the hearts are almost a mirage, disappearing at certain angles and popping up again in just the right light. Knit one heart or knit a row of them across the scarf (shawl). Directions are written for multiple hearts. We’ll be running a Lonely Hearts KAL again this February with a brand new hat design, and we hope you’ll join us!
