Knitting a simple heart stitch

Knitting a Simple Heart Stitch

Wrong side of the pattern

I realised while i was changing everything on my blog i haven't put up a knitting post in a while. Today, bored out of my brains i picked up my trusty book of stitches and sat down to make a square.

I am currently half way through my knitted blanket. I have never been one to complete a project in days. I end up doing 2 or 3 at once so i do not get bored. This blanket is taking alot longer than planned because of it. Once all the squares are nicely joined together i will post an update on how it looks :)

This stitch looks hard but it is actually quite easy to do and the repetition is simple enough that you could put it down and start off where you left off without getting in a muddle.

This stitch works in multiples of 27 +2 (the +2 being your edge stitches in knit stitch)

Key: P = Purl stitch, K = Knit stitch

Row 1: edge st, purl across to last st, edge st
Row 2: edge st, knit across to last st, edge st
Row 3: edge st, k1, p7, * p5, k1, p7; repeat from * to last 7 sts, p5, k1, edge st
Row 4: edge st, p2, k4, * k6, p3, k4; repeat from * to last 9 sts, k6, p2, edge st
Row 5: edge st, k3, p5, * p3, k5, p5; repeat from * to last 7 sts, p3, k3, edge st
Row 6: edge st, p4, k2, * k4, p7, k2; repeat from * to last 9 sts, k4, p4, edge st
Row 7: edge st, k5, p3, * p1, k9, p3; repeat from * to last 7 sts, p1, k5, edge st
Row 8: edge st, p6, * k2, p11; repeat from * to last 9 sts, k2, p6, edge st
Row 9: edge st, k6, p2, * k11, p2; repeat from * to last 7 sts, k6, edge st
Row 10: edge st, k1, p5, * k2, p5, k1, p5; repeat from * to last 9 sts, k2, p5, k1, edge st
Row 11: edge st, p2, k3, p3, * p1, (k3, p3) x 2; repeat from * to last 7 sts, p1, k3, p2, edge st
Row 12: edge st, k2, p2, k2, * k4, p2, k3, p2, k2; repeat from * to last 9 sts, k4, p2, k2, edge st
Repeat rows 1 through 12.
