Knit stitches are never useless, your love is never wasted!
This tiny pattern might help you to pass a lazy Sunday. You can use it as a pure decoration, put it on top of a wrapped present or arrange it together with other lovely decorations.

The shown pattern will appear on the wrong side! I’m very excited to see how are you going to use it.
It makes a good opportunity to use some leftover yarn. I would recommend choosing a light main color in combination with a bright red yarn to create this lovely heart.

FEBRUARY MOOD allows you to learn and practice basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. If you have never tried brioche knitting before, maybe this little project is a good challenge to get started. There are only a few pattern rounds to be knit, other rounds are straight brioche knitting. So don´t be afraid of brioche knitting any longer. You can do it!

The pattern can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished work to smooth stitches.

From point to point 6”/15cm.

Altogether 44 yard/40 m of DK weight yarn for the shown size.
Shown samples were knit with my leftovers in Walkcollection Merino DK and La Bien Aimee Merino DK.

Size 4 US / 3,5mm circular needle and dpn.

Darning needle for weaving in ends.

20 sts, 24 rounds = 4” / 10cm in blocked brioche stitch.

Cast on, k, p, Brk, Brp, br4stinc, br4stdec.
