“When I was otherwise, I could find paradise.” SHAKESPEARE, Jerikoh.


I tried to publish a romantic pink picture taken from a knitted heart I made some months ago.

Ugh! It got too mainstream after the editing work! One or two adjustments and there it is: a dramatic portrait!

Here are the instructions for a knitted heart. As suggested in many tutorials, the gauche is not important and you can follow the advised needle size in your yarn label.

Cast on 2 St.
Row 1: KFB, K to last St, KFB.
Row 2: P.
Repeat these 2 rows until there are 14 St (12 rows total).

Then continue…

Row 13: K2Tog, K5, and turn work; leave remaining 7 St on needle.
Row 14: Working with the 6 St closest to end of needle, P2Tog, P2, P2Tog.
Row 15: BO 4 Sts, and trim remaining yarn to 24 inches. Use large needle to weave 
yarn through back of piece to beginning of reserved 7 St.
Row 16: Working with reserved 7 St, K5, K2Tog.
Row 17: P2Tog, P2, P2Tog.
Row 18: BO 4.

And that is how you make a heart with knitting needles. Now, take a picture and look at it boldly. What does it look like? What is it like? Does its picture demand a photo editor? After all the finishing touches, how do you like it?

I dare you to work on it until it fits your expectations perfectly. Only publish when it gets flawfless!

I would love to know how dramatic yours can get…
