Today’s Cable Heart Stitch Pattern is an interlocking design in vertical panels that can be knitted to make up so many fun projects. I think these pretty hearts would look great as a scarf. Multiple panels can create a blanket of any size, too. It’s always fun to see the cable heart design emerge as you knit. And hearts make it an extra special project filled with love.
MATERIALS for the Cable Heart Stitch Pattern
My featured samples were created with size 11 US knitting needles and #5 bulky weight yarns, resulting in a 7″ wide knitting piece. My Pink Yarn is Cozy Wool™ Yarn by Loops & Threads® in the color Petal Pink. My White Yarn is Uptown Bulky Yarn by Universal Yarn in the color Cream.
