These Little hearts really are very simple and easy to make. Each heart is knitted in just one piece. Using simple increase and decreases you will knit a single piece of fabric, which cleverly folds to make a heart. This pattern has detailed line by line instructions and photos accompany every stage of making up. These hearts are super quick to make-and a great way to use up any left-over yarn. Just 5m of yarn are needed for each one. If you are using a different weight of yarn just use a size smaller than the recommended needle to give a firm close stocking stitch fabric. Lighter yarn will give a smaller heart (which may be a bit fiddly to sew up up) thicker yarn such as Aran will give a larger heart, why not play with your yarn stash and make a basket full of love?

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website www.clairefairalldesigns.co.uk
