Raise your hand if you’ve been here:
You’ve got a mile-long to do list and you just wasted the last two hours searching Pinterest, only to find DIY’s that look like your kindergartener made them.
I’ve got you covered, because nothing says I love you like a simple, hand-knit valentine heart.
With only a few knitting supplies, that you probably have on hand at home, and about thirty minutes, you can make a meaningful gift that your loved ones will cherish.
“Thank you!! I was looking for something special for someone special this year, since we have a “no present” rule for Valentine’s Day. Thank you!!”
Here’s what you’ll need:
A few scrap yards of worsted weight yarn
Size US6 (4mm) knitting needles
“I am just learning to knit and this is the first pattern I have ever used. It was so easy to follow and the little heart is very cute. I’m proud of my first proper project. Thanks. “
Other ways to use this hand knit heart:
- Sewing it onto a card
- Sewing it onto a pin (backed with felt)
- Using it as a patch for mending a hole.
- Making a lavender sachet (Sew two of them together.)
- Creating a garland. (Make several, add a hanger and string them together over a window.)
I want to hear from you! What are you going to make with your knitted heart? Share your ideas in the comments so that we can be inspired by you!
