“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).
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…
