Tiny Heart Stitch – FREE Pattern, Picture and Video Tutorial

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


Tiny Heart Stitch

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)

The Tiny Heart Stitch

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




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. 🙂

    On row 2 of the pattern do you slip first and then heart stitch to the end or last stitch e wrap?

    • Denise Canela October 8, 2016 at 4:31 pm

      Hi Becki,
      In flat panels I always slip the first stitch on all rows and use a knit stitch on the last peg.

    Hello , I’ve just finished looming a tiny heart stitch scarf , but the edges on both sides are curling in . What did I do wrong ?
    After casting on , I did e-wrap stitch on row 1 .
    Row 2 : purl-over on every pegs except the last peg , I did e-wrap stitch.
    Row 3 : e-wrap
    Row 4 : purl-over on every pegs except the last peg , I did e-wrap stitch . And so on .
    Thanks a lot .

    I just made a lap blanket in this stitch and I just love it!!! “This is the 1st lo.om project and it went really fast! Thank you for this pattern

    • Denise Canela July 3, 2015 at 4:28 pm

      Glad you liked Theresa’s stitch. It’s is lovely and I think it’s a GREAT stitch for any blanket.

  6. Barb Rigdon April 7, 2015 at 1:25 pm

    Denise what does it mean on patterns when it says to do something in multiples and reading them right to left or left to right? watching a video is so much easier.

    • Denise Canela April 8, 2015 at 8:48 pm

      Hey Barb – the multiples are the number of stitches you will knit to create that stitch pattern. So if the multiple is say 4 and you have a loom with 24 pegs – you will repeat that stitch pattern 6 times. If your loom is 26 pegs you will be repeating that stitch pattern 6 times and will have 2 extra pegs to either knit 1/2 the stitch pattern or make a creative decision to do something else because it takes 4 pegs to complete that stitch pattern.
      I hope that answer didn’t make the question even more painful. Hopefully I helped some.
      Hugs, denise

    Hello there. I was wondering if I used this stitch could I make a baby blanket with it and what size yarn would I use?

    Thank you

    • Denise Canela March 12, 2015 at 8:56 pm

      Yes, and it would turn out very nicely. I suggest a worsted weight #4 yarn.

      • Maria March 12, 2015 at 9:40 pm

        thank you Denise!!!!

  8. Tonia February 23, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    Going to try this stitch on my next pair of slippers

    • Denise Canela February 23, 2015 at 7:03 pm

      Tonia – That sounds awesome- send PIC ! 🙂

  9. Kim McFadden October 21, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    I love the pattern! Can I use a 24-peg loom for a newborn hat. If so any added recommendations.

    • Denise Canela October 21, 2014 at 9:14 pm

      Kim, this stitch will work with ANY size loom. I do recommend that you use only 1 strand of yarn regardless of the loom gauge. I made a little hat with this stitch on the 24-peg, Heads-up it is very tiny but it does feel great.
      Hope that helps,

  10. Jen B October 17, 2014 at 11:45 am

    Hey there,

    So I am totally digging this stitch. I think it’s adorable and can’t wait to try it! I do have a question though. Can this be done with a bulky yarn or is it better suited for worsted weight? Also, this can be done on a round loom, correct?


    • Denise Canela October 17, 2014 at 5:29 pm

      Hi Jen, I have not tried this stitch with a bulky – don’t believe it will work well but I could be wrong. As far as round looms – the little hat in the picture was made on the red Knifty Knitter 31-peg round loom.
      Hope that helps some,

      • Jen B October 23, 2014 at 6:44 pm

        Hey, it’s me again with another question about this stitch. I have gotten several rows finished but it is turning out very lacy. There is a lot of space between my “hearts.” I am using a 4 yarn. Am I doing something wrong?

        • Denise Canela October 24, 2014 at 8:59 am

          Jen, I thought that when I first knit this stitch however knit at least 5-10 rows – then take a look at the backside of the knitting and you should see that the knitted piece is actually pretty dense. I would say that the 4 is the perfect yarn weight for the little hearts to show up. Let me know if that didn’t help and if so – send me a pic denise@loomahat.com

  11. Karen Aicken October 12, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Oh, this is SUCH a nice stitch. Thank you both for sharing with us.

    • Denise Canela October 12, 2014 at 4:54 pm

      HI KAREN !!! Love it when you visit. 🙂 – Now you must do one of your awesome scarves or shawls with it. Hey and a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family.

  12. Chantel October 12, 2014 at 2:51 pm

    I love this hat can you please tell me how to make on a round loom for a 4 year old . How would I cast on and off thank you so much

    • Denise Canela October 12, 2014 at 4:30 pm

      Hi Chantel. For a 4 year old your best bet is the 36-peg loom. A Chain Cast-on: Click HERE 4 Rows of Garter Stitch – 26 Rows of the Tiny Heart – Cast off with the Flat Draw-String : Click HERE . I will post the pattern again – later this week .
      Hope that Helps,

        hate to barge in on the conersation but I saw this pattern this morning and I just finished my granddaughters hat….It looks fabulous!! I used a round loom 36 peg, ewrapped my cast on, I did 2″ of ribbing stitch for the brim and did the rest in this half knit stitch, then finished the flat cast off
