Knit a little love in your heart
MATERIALS for Knitted Hearts Bouquet:
• Worsted or Aran Weighted Yarn in any colors of your choice
• Bendable Craft Wire
• Double Pointed Number 8 US Knitting Needles
• Tapestry Needle
We create our hearts with an I-Cord. If you are not familiar with how to knit an I-Cord, I have a detailed video for it, as well as for all the knitting techniques in this project.
To begin, we will cast-on just 4 stitches using the Long Tail Cast On Method.
Then just knit your I-Cord. Once your I-Cord is between seven to eight inches in length, it is time to bind off.
Now we will simply thread our craft wire directly through the middle of our finished I-Cord. This may require a little bit of patience, especially if it likes to poke out of the sides as you go. Bend your wire into an oval, and simply tie your yarn ends together.
Here comes the fun part: Shaping our little hearts!
To create my stem, I double the remainder of my wire, squeeze it together, then wrap more yarn, tie and cut the ends. Pretty!
This knitted heart bouquet is so sweet and full of love. Everyone will cherish this thoughtful handmade gift made especially by YOU! I hope you give this fun DIY project a try.
