I was looking for a knitting pattern to knit a love heart from super chunky yarn and couldn’t find one.
Ta-da! Worked it out and here is the pattern.
You need a super chunky yarn – any will be ok – and 10mm knitting needles. You could alternatively use 12mm knitting needles for a larger heart.
This heart was knit with Paintbox Wool Mix Super Chunky (ad).
Knitting Pattern for Super Chunky Love Heart
Cast on 3 stitches.
Kfb, k1, kfb (5)
Cut yarn. Leave this work on needle, sliding it along and ignoring for now.
Repeat the above pattern so that you have 2 identical pieces on your needle.
K across all 10 stitches, thus joining the 2 pieces together.
K 5 more rows.
K2tog, k6, k2tog (8)
K2tog, k4, k2tog (6)
K2tog, k2, k2tog (4)
K2tog x 2 (2)
Cast off and weave in loose ends.
You could use this knitted heart to adorn hats, headbands, and even use it in card making and other crafts.
