As I knitter, I decided to make a knitted heart for St. Valentine's Day. You can use any yarn you like and any size needles, depending on how large you want the heart to be. I used fairly small needles, but the sky's the limit, althouth probably too big would look a bit weird! The pattern and number of rows stays the same no matter what yarn or needles you use - so go ahead, have fun. Honestly it took me longer to put together the slide show than to knit the heart! I am going to stick my little heart onto a folded card - eh voila, an instant Valentine Card! This was knitted in Lion Brand Woolease http://cache.lionbrand.com//yarns/woolease.htm (a lovely yarn to work with by the way) in red. I also knitted another heart in Woolease red and white together, but it was a bit of a waste of time!
The heart shaped knit was made from a pattern from the Lion Brand web site http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/BK4K-0602002.html?noImages=0 and knitted with one strand of Homespun and one strand of Woolease in shades of red.
