Hanna’s Heart

November 21

By now, knitters all over the ‘net have showed off their clever uses of Hannah Fettig’s darling Heart Pin. Here’s how I used one I made last night. This is on a package for Mary (of Mary’s Garden Sock renown). Happy Birthday, dear friend!

 I attached the heart to the ribbon by making a little loop on the back. I picked up two stitches on the back, knitted a couple of rows, then knitted them together with stitches a couple of rows up. Then I passed the present’s ribbon through the loop I had made.

If you like the Heart Pin, you might also enjoy Hannah’s book Closely Knit. Our LYS guru Alana arranged for Hannah to spend an afternoon at the shop. We got to see the projects from her book in person. They include all kinds of fun techniques that I can’t wait to try.

For a glimpse into the life of a Real Designer, check out Alana’s NeverNotKnitting podcast, Episode 4. In the interview, Hannah describes how she ended up writing her book and what it was like to create over 30 patterns and their projects all in about a year’s time. Amazing! All I can say is, the world doesn’t produce enough coffee for me to even consider such ambition.

    Thanks for the mention Audrey!

    Your heart is so cute and what a great use for it! I will have to remember that for the next present I give!

    I love your smocked sweater. Do you know of a formula for making it into a cardigan? Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous pattern.

    Thanks, Joyce! I think my Smock Top Sweater would be lovely as a cardigan. While I don’t know of a specific formula, it might be possible to get ideas from Ravelry, if you’re a member there. I’ve seen several ribbed cardigans, and you could adapt on of them to include the smocking stitch pattern on the yoke.

    Alas, the pattern is in a book that is no longer published. Closely Knit: Handmade Gifts for the Ones You Love by Hannah Fettig may be available from your library, or used through a book seller.
