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 knitted scarf. Additionally, multiple panels can create a blanket of any size. It’s always fun to see the cable heart design emerge as you knit. Knitting heart designs make it an extra special project filled with love.
