Every week at our gatherings in the park, you will have the opportunity to learn to knit. Different patterns will be available, needles and wool will be provided. Watch out for the next Heart Prints Space Gathering and come along 🙂

 

Knitted hearts to use as coasters. 

Start by knitting the top of the heart – cast on 5 stitches.
Row 1: Knit.
Row 2: Increase the first first stitch by knitting in the front and back (kfb) of the stitch, then knit to the end of the row.
Row 3: Knit.
Row 4: Knit to the last stitch, increase (kfb).
Row 5: Knit.
Row 6: Increase the first first stitch (kfb), knit to the end of the row.
Rows 7-10: Knit.
Cut the yarn and push your work to the bottom of the needle.
Now make the other top half of the heart – cast on 5 stitches on the same needle where your work is.
Repeat rows 1-10.
Once completed, the 2 pieces should be on the same needle.
Join the two pieces by knitting across them.
Knit 4 more rows.
On the next row, decrease first and last stitch by knitting 2 stitches together (k2tog).
Knit the next row.
Repeat the last 2 steps until you have 2 stitches left.
Cut the yarn off, take your tapestry needle with the yarn through the remaining 2 stitches and weave in all the ends.
