By Lauren

follow-your-heart-coverI am so super excited to share my brand new collection of knitting patterns with you, “Follow Your Heart”!  It is a collection of 7 lovely knitting patterns inspired by Valentine’s Day and all of the fun girly goodies that come along with it!  The collection includes gloves with flirty valentine’s messages, a skirt and legwarmer set featuring a heart cable pattern, playful and romantic reversible eye masks, a cupcake inspired hat and mitten set, and more!  Check out the video of me below doing a show and tell of the collection, and telling a little more about each piece!  A fun thing I also did with the collection was to include girls sizes in the patterns, yay!

In the video, I also share a fun Valentine’s Day promotion!:

    This pattern collection is SO fun!!! I love it. I especially love your new skirt…. (of course)… although I still haven’t progressed on the last skirt of yours I started :( The skirt I was working on before that one, I finished and it came out TOO BIG, wah! So my skirt knitting confidence is pretty low right now [& on on picking the right size]. But yours are so cute!

      Haha, I was wondering how that was going for you! That is a bummer about the other skirt, I hope you do try again though, knitted skirts are so much fun! :) Happy to hear you like the new patterns, thanks girl! :)

        I did the waistband on the large while I was finishing that skirt. When the other skirt turned out too big I panicked and didn’t know if I should restart on the medium… I probably should since I seem to pick a size too big!

    Before I purchase your heart design leg warmers, I would like to make sure it is a written pattern as I don’t use charts in my knitting. Thanks!
