Today we’re knitting up a Cable Heart Stitch Pattern! This interlocking design is a classic project for Valentine’s Day and perfect all year round.
These vertical panels 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.

Garter Edge: You may wish to start with a garter edge to begin. In my examples, I added 4 rows of the knit stitch before starting the cable heart pattern.
Note: For all even rows (2, 4, 6, etc), you’re simply knitting the knits and purling the purls! I’ll add the written instructions for those rows, too.
