Baby Heart Washcloth

Size 7 needles
Worsted weigh cotton


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 set of sts - 14 sts on needle.


Row 2 and all even rows: Purl


Row 3: *K1, M1, knit to last st, M1, k1; rep from * on the second set of stitches - 18 sts on needle.


Rows 5 - 11: Repeat row 3. 17 sts each set . 34 sts total.


Row 13: (Joining row) K1, M1, K 15 sts, K2 tog, K 15, M1, K1 - 35 sts total.

Row 17 - 20: Rep. Rows 15 and 16. Ending with a purl row.


Row 21: K1, ssk, knit to last 3 sts , K2tog, K1


Row 22: Purl


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.
