    I’ve just made a white heart to go with the white Baby Feet Pram Charm I knitted yesterday. Absolutely charming! And SO unique! I’m about to start a set in blue. Would make an ideal St. Valentines Day bunting in red!

    I knit for a cancer hospital and I am always looking for patterns to knit so they can sell them in their shop to raise money. This heart one is super. Thank you I shall look further for more of your free patterns.
