Sharing The Love

Here are a set of fantastic little hearts. They are ready to radiate lots of love and make you or someone dear have moments of heart-skippy happiness. The challenge is on you to knit them. Should you choose to accept... I have provided the pattern!
I got the pattern from a wonderful blog called Mochimochi Land. Give it a glance when you get a chance, it'll be worth your while!

Here goes:


CO = cast on

BO = bind off

st = stitch

k = knit

p = purl
kfb = knit into front and back of stitch (to make 2 stitches where there was 1)

k2tog = knit 2 stitches together

p2tog = purl 2 stitches together

rep = repeat

Pattern starts here!
CO 2 st

row 1: kfb, k to last st, kfb

row 2: p 1 row

rep these 2 rows 6 times total (14 st)
row 3: k2 tog, k5 and turn, leaving remaining 7 st on the needle

row 4: p2tog, p2, p2tog
BO 4 st, cut a long piece of yarn (about 10″) and weave through back of piece to reattach to other side (where you left off when turning)

row 5: k5, k2tog
row 6: p2tog, p2, p2tog
BO 4 st
Repeat the above pattern for opposite side of heart.

Good luck to all my knit-wits!
Thanks to Anita Murphy for the photo.
