Elegantly Simple Baby Blanket complex-looking pattern that is easier to knit than it looks

Baby Blanket charity knitting pattern

With so much movement and design interest to this pattern stitch, its complex-looking structure is easier to knit than it looks. The pattern stitch is derived from the feather and fan family of Shetland lace patterns. This blanket is self-edged, so when it's done, it's done. The beginning and ending borders are gracefully scalloped, and the side borders also have dainty small scallops. Downloadable pattern valued at $6.00.

Learn to knit a sock with just a small investment in time and materials

Mini Sock — Learn to Knit a Sock

The pattern for Mini Sock is truly a sock, but on a miniature scale! Great for learning the basic techniques of sock making with just a small investment in time and materials. And you only need to make one (instead of a pair) to be ready to put your finished project to good use as a decoration, gift tag, etc. Downloadable pattern valued at $5.00.

Make a bunny from a knitted swatch

Knitted Bunny beginner's knitting pattern

Make a bunny from a knitted swatch — it's almost as clever as pulling a rabbit out of a hat! Downloadable pattern valued at $5.00.

Miniature Sweater Ornament

Miniature Sweater Ornament knitting pattern

This little sweater is knit from the top-down and is almost seamless. A collection of small lengths of different yarns is an excellent choice for easy one-of-a-kind results — a great way to use those workshop or goodie bag samples. Downloadable pattern valued at $5.00.

This pattern can be used in conjunction with Technique Teddy Bear to make a sweater wardrobe for the bear.

Morning Surf Scarf

Morning Surf Scarf knitting pattern

Inspired by morning walks on the beach, Morning Surf captures the feeling of gentle waves under a morning haze. The scarf is a simple lace-type structure that knits up quickly because of the dropped yarn-overs. Downloadable pattern valued at $5.00.

Troika Scarf

Troika Scarf knitting pattern

This stash-busting super easy scarf is knit sideways along the length in garter stitch. Downloadable pattern valued at $5.00.

Thank you for interest. I am here to serve you and help keep your knitting a pleasurable experience. If you have questions or need assistance with purchasing or knitting my HeartStrings patterns, let me know. Sincerely, Jackie E-S
