The Little Hearts Pattern 💕

This beautiful lace knitted pattern is made of very easy to follow double turns and shifting of needle instructions with only two rows.

The result is this very textured, heart pattern that is simply lovely for anything from a little girl’s dress to a fun, throw cushion.

Here are the instructions:

Work on even number of stitches.

Use the needles that the yarn calls for or a little larger.

Repeat from * to * Row 1.- Knit1 * knit each stitch with double turn around the needle*, end with knit1.

Row 2.- Knit1, *Unravel 2 stitches from the left needle to the right, return to the left needle, knit the second stitch through the first, knit the first, take off* end with knit 1.

Repeat these 2 rows.

The Twisted Stitch 🌪 

One of the most fun, yet simplest knitting stitch patterns we’ve encountered. And we tried finding a source but could not find one, so we made our own tutorial. 

A blanket may even look quite interesting with this one. 

A large coat, perhaps?

If you’re interested in getting the same look as we did on the video, you will want to get a color-changing yarn like Caron Simply Soft ‘Soft Paints’ Yarn

Instructions:

 Worked on any number of stitches.

Use 1 or 2 sizes larger needles than what the yarn calls for. This is a thick woven stitch.

On every row, pass the first stitch as if to purl with yarn in the back when you knit, with the yarn in front when you purl.

Pass= pass the stitch as if to purl.

Repeat from * to * Cast on your stitches any way you prefer. Base Row: Purl.

Row 1.- Pass1), *between the next 2 stitches, pick up and knit from the row below, and pass the first stitch as if to purl* knit the last stitch.

Row 2.- Pass 1), *purl the next 2 stitches together*, purl the last stitch Repeat these 2 rows.

Bind off on an all knit row, after row 2.

I really just want to knit a kimono style coat with it, so I might one day.

It also reminds me of the arrowhead knitting stitch pattern and the Doves Knitting Pattern.

Use 2 size larger needles than what the yarn calls for.

k=knit.

yo=yarn over

Repeat from * to *.

Cast on stitches

Row 1.- k1 *k4, yo, ssk, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k2,* k1.

Rows 2, 4, 6 and 8.- k1, purl to last stitch, k1.
