Beginning of Heart: CO 5 stitches. With a separate ball
of yarn CO 5 more stitches on the same needle - 10 stitches total.
Row 1: (RS) *[ K1, M1] two times, K1; rep from * on second

Continue repeating rows 21 and 22 until you have 5 stitches
remaining. You will be reducing the stitch count by two on each odd numbered row.
Next row: K1, sl 1, K2tog, psso, k1 - 3 stitches
Final Row - Sl 1, K2tog, psso - 1 stitch - weave in yarn
I found that it was easier to count the stitches after
every row so that the sides of the heart are even.
