Loom Knit Velvet Hearts Cowl

It’s Friday!! Just wanting to spread the love that we all need now! 

I had done this heart stitch last year with cotton yarn as a free stitch.  Valentine's Day is just around the corner and some leftover velvet yarn I couldn’t think of a better project. 

To make sure the hearts stood out I did half of the cowl with a red marbled xl cotton yarn. This truly keeps your eyes on the gorgeous red hearts! 

The pattern is knitted as a flat panel and then just seamed together. Oh, the things you can create with just a rectangle :)

The red velvet brought this heart stitch to life!

14” Garter Stitch

Basic Bind off 

You will sew your bind off end to the upper edge of the cast on end. 

To help prevent shedding if you use velvet yarn wet block it. Velvet yarn works best with simple stitches to avoid any worming of the yarn.
