. . . luv 'n stitches for our tired old world

Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart . . . a tiny free knitting pattern

Sweetie•KNIT•Heart colour

When springtime is all a flutter and love is in the air,
flowers, hearts ‘n rainbows seem to pop up everywhere.
And to celebrate this season of beginnings what may,
my hope is to help you truly knit-your-heart-out today!

So then, here is my heart…
freely shared now with you.
My own “Sweetie-Knit-Heart”
original knitting pattern,
with love from me to you ♥

You might knit these hearts to proclaim like or love…
perhaps even wear as appliqué on your sleeve or glove.
Frankly, these tiny hearts are quite fine on their own,
yet thrive with imagination—helping one feel less alone.

Little more than a yarn scrap
is required for this pleasure
of transformation from odd bits,
into lovely coloured treasure.

Yes, the “Sweetie Knit Heart” will make people smile,
so knit a colourful bunch for a floral bouquet or other style.
Now since tiny knit hearts can help show that you care,
go knit ‘n scatter “Sweetie Knit Heart” seeds everywhere!

♥ Jackie ♥

      Inserting the right-hand needle tip into the back loops of 2 stitches together will slant the decrease left.

      • No, I haven’t seen these, but I do knit and crochet. I bought a fun book on crochet motifs by Edie Eckman to diddle around with. Recently, I went through Chemo, leaving my hands numb. Needlework has proven to be a godsend in re-establishing the use of my hands. 🙂 So thank you for sharing. I’ll keep these in mind for Christmas tags/tree ornaments.

    • awe… Thanks and same to you, Nora 🤗 I hope you’ll give my Sweetie Hearts a try!
      They’re tiny, but pack a punch of stitch techniques… And with so few stitches in total, they make great practice projects since there are never more than a few ripped back stitches to cry over 😂Then look what a fun li’l hand-knit heart you’ll have! 😍💜 Jackie@KWH

  75. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
    pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create
    your theme? Fantastic work!
