One month until Valentines Day! Who’s excited?! I looove Valentines Day. All the pretty pink and red and flowers and love. Everything is so cute and happy. I love spending the whole month before valentines day in the Valentine’s Day mood. I mean, why not.
The next month is going to fly by, so now is the perfect time to get started on your Valentines sweater! Wear it for your valentines coffee run, lounging around home, or date nights! Plus, if you’re lucky enough to be reading this now, the Candy Hearts sweater pattern is $4 for the weekend! 👏🏻 Get it here!
My candy hearts sweater pattern is one of my favorites that I always wear around Valentines Day. I’m actually hoping to have another new design up this year, we’ll see if I get the time! But for now, this one is the one I wear.
This is a beginner friendly and easy pattern. New knitters won’t have any problem working this one up! The “hearts” on the front are optional, but are just made using the duplicate stitch method. The remainder of the candy hearts sweater is knit in stockinette stitch and a couple rows of yarn overs with a knit two together. Like that’s it. You got this.
The colors and yarn I used for this sweater are We Are Knitters petite wool in “millennial pink” for the body pieces, and the We Are Knitters meriwool in “sprinkle fantasy” for the sleeves. The hearts were made using scrap petite wool colors.
If you’d like to make this sweater larger or smaller, it’s super easy to adjust. I would say this is an adult sized medium. For a larger size. simply add 8 stitches to your cast on and knit an extra 6 rows. For a smaller fit, deduct 6 stitches from your cast on and deduct 4 rows from the length.
Here’s a couple of the candy hearts sweaters that have been knit up by you lovely people!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
