Step 1: Knit the heart

To make these coasters I used Julie's beautiful Knitted Heart Pattern from "Julie and The Knits" with a slight modification.  I wanted them to be a little longer than the original pattern calls for so in between each decrease row in forming the apex of the heart, I added 3 rows of knit.

So Step 1 is to knit your hearts.  Find the pattern here.

Step 2: Embroider "Marry Me"

Embroider romantic messages on your hearts.  To do this just take an arm's length of white yarn threaded and thread it into a yarn needle and start stitching.  Look the pictures above for a guide.  This did take me a couple attempts to get the letters to look how I wanted, but my time spent was so worth it!

To get the letters in a straight line, pick a row in the knitting that you want all the letters to sit on and and do the same for the uppermost boundary of the letters.  My letters were all about 3 rows tall. 

Step 3: Embroider "XOXO"
