I kind of fell in love with this yarn when I saw it at Lincraft. I have a bad history of buying novelty yarns and then having absolutely nothing to make with them so I banned myself from buying them… but I’m not very good at sticking to buying bans so this made it home with me anyway!
Took me a while to think of what to make (and you know I’ve got almost the whole fricking ball left over after this project anyway so any suggestions are welcome…. anything other than scarves!) but in the end I settled on making heart shaped knitted facewashers as a start.
I used 7mm needles an cast on around 20 stitches.
I knit in garter stitch until I had finished a complete square.
And then cast off leaving around 20cm of extra yarn as a tail.
Now place the square like this with the tail at the top.
Basically we’re going to squish down the point into the centre to form the top of the heart…
So using a needle stitch from the top corner down and bunch it up. Tie off and weave any ends in.
Give them a wash and they are ready to use ^_^ I use mine to remove make up at the end of the day because it’s so soft and gentle and once dirty, can just be thrown in the wash. Considering the whole ball of yarn cost $5 you could make 1 for each day of the week and never buy cotton pads again. +1 for the environment and much cuter too XD
Quite a few of you guys have written to me asking for a beginners knitting class kind of tutorial. I’m thinking of trying to shoot that soon, is there anything specific you want included? Would you all prefer videos or photos?
