Hearts in a Swirl

In knitting world, little things can make a big difference, which is just one of the many things that make it so interesting and engaging.

Take the Sweet Hearts & Soft Spots pattern, for instance. A few easy color changes transform the design from this ...

into this ...

or this ...

Recently, a friend asked how many hearts and spots I'd made. I started to answer then stammered to a halt. I have no clue. I've been making them for years, but most have quickly flown out the door as gifts or something personal and handmade for someone going through a tough time to let them know I'm thinking about them.

There are other tasks I should be tackling: Patterns at various stages of development. Designs on the drawing board. The ever-present cluster of WIPs.

For the moment, however, I continue to be fascinated by hearts in a swirl.

Interested in this pattern? You can:


  1. Love the pattern and it's amazing what a difference a slight colour change can make.

  2. what a sweet pattern! And you are right a simple change can make a whole pattern different and new!

  3. What a fab idea, i just love them. Thanks for sharing.

  4. You are so right. Little changes can make a big difference. It is fun to play around with something so simple!
