Folk Hearts

I’ve added another pattern to my Ravelry store!

This one, called Folk Hearts (and modeled by my good friend’s most darling granddaughter) is designed for girls ranging from three to seven years old. It’s a simple sportweight pullover with a ring of hearts across the yoke and an X’s and O’s (kisses and hugs) pattern along the hem and cuffs. The body is worked in one piece to the armholes, the sleeves are worked in the round to the underarms, then the pieces are joined for the yoke and worked in rounds to  rounds to the neck. Rolled edges provide a casual fit for imaginative play.

I knitted this sweater with St-Denis Nordique on size 5 (3.75 mm) needles. The instructions are for three sizes (26 1/4″, 27 3/4″, and 29 1/4″) and require five to six balls of yarn.

There may not be time to knit this up for the holidays, but it would make an adorable Valentine’s Day gift for your own special cherub.

Respond to this message by Wednesday, December 5, and I’ll enter your name in a drawing for a free pattern!

  1. I have been wondering, about the yarn Nordique. I was under the impression that that yarn line was no longer around. Am I mistaken? If so where can I get some? It was a great line/ simple and w/ many great colors and the price is right. I’d be happy to know that all is well w/ the yarn line. Sincerely, Kirsten (or Keirlena on Ravelry)
