Lace Heart Knitting Pattern

This Lace Heart Knitting Pattern creates a sweet swatch of love. With basic knitting techniques and a few increases and decrease stitches, this knit stitch pattern is fun for so many knitting projects year-round.

You can stitch these lacy hearts into a blanket, a pillow, or just keep on going heart-after-heart to make a beautiful, long scarf.
