Mini Heart Knitting Pattern – perfect for a brooch

I’ve been making so many of these! They knit up quick, and the tails stuff the heart. I love making them as a brooch. It’s a quick knit, and great scrap buster.

These are about half the size of the heart puff pattern I have posted.

4mm dpn
Dk yarn
Safety pin or brooch back
