HEART DISHCLOTHS or BLANKET BLOCKS

HEART DISHCLOTHS OR BLANKET BLOCKS

I designed these Heart knitting patterns to make squares with the same amount of sts and rows than my Alphabet series blocks and my 52 Square Pickup ones. Of course, you can also use them as dishcloth / washcloth, or incorporate the patterns in any other project you like. 

There are 2 versions: HEART 1 occupies most of the inner surface of the square, whereas HEART 2 is smaller and leaves some spare room inside the block in case you want to embroider there a date or monogram.

If you want to add these patterns to your Ravelry library, click here.

Both entire patterns are below.

You can also purchase the pattern in a high quality PDF file for $1 HERE.
