Tiny Heart Stitch on a Knitting Loom
This very new, very cute little stitch is made up of just two rows. The Tiny Heart Stitch is one row of e-wrap stitch and one row of what the creator Theresa Higby calls a Purl Over and I call a Half-Knit. That purl over is the key element to mastering this technique and other new stitches in her repertoire.
What I like the best is that it almost looks airy a bit lacey but in fact it is a dense stitch. Works well flat or in the round. It was so easy to learn and I liked it so much that I made my first hat, in the picture above just minutes after watching the video. I used one strand of baby yarn on the red medium Knifty Knitter loom. The hat feels wonderful.
Thank you Theresa for creating this and for giving me permission to write out a pattern and share it here on LoomaHat.com.

Stitch Pattern: Made-up of 2 Rows
Cast on: Using your preferred method
Row 1: e-Wrap Knit Stitch (this row creates the two prong pointy bottom of the heart)
Row 2: Tiny Heart Stitch (this row creates the two little bumps on the top of the heart)
1. Put your working yarn above the loop on your peg. ( Like a Flat Knit)
2. With your hook, come up from the bottom
3 Grab the yarn and create a new loop.
4. DO NOT take the loop off the peg.
5. Take that loop and fold it back on to the peg
6. Pull your working yarn slightly tight
THAT’S IT – YOU’RE DONE ! ! !
Continue to repeat these two rows until you have the desired length.
Note: Try to end with Row 2 so that your tiny heart isn’t headless. 🙂
