Cute and delicate valentine hearts connectedwith their own hands, will be able to convey all the warmth and tenderness that you feel for your loved one. You can give it instead of a banal postcard, supplement it with packing a gift or make a souvenir from it. The knitting heart, which I want to offer in my master class, is based on a very well known knitting motif - pineapple. It looks very openwork and airy. Materials for the heart need a minimum - the remains of thread and hook. We will begin to knit our heart from below, from its acute part. To do this, we will type a chain of four loops. Then in the first loop we tie a column with a crochet. Next we will make a chain of three air loops and again we will connect 2 columns with a crochet. We knit with turning rows. We replace the first column of the series by tying a chain of three loops instead. In the same (last column of the first row) we will connect one more column. Then make a chain of 2 loops. And in the second column we will make a couple of posts again. That's the kind of group we will begin and end each series. Now we connect 3 loops and a column to the center of the arch of the first row. This column will be for us the "axis of symmetry" in the heart. We finish the series in mirror reflection - 3 loops and a group of 4 bars and pairs of loops between them. The third row completely repeats the second. The fourth series begins as standard. And further in the center of the first arch we tie 3 posts, in which one is a nakid. After them we will connect three loops and a "column of symmetry". We end the series with a mirror image. The beginning of the series is unchanged, but we'll link five columns instead of three. For this, in the first and last column we will fasten a pair of columns, and not one. We finish the series. Now we replace the columns with the crochet with simple columns, in which the cap is not. Further all on a drawing. In the next row, we'll start making arches in our pineapple. To do this, between the simple bars we will knit three air loops. We start the series in the same way as all the previous ones. After the first simple column, we bind three loops. And again a simple post. And so 3 more times. In total, we should get 4 arches and 5 posts. Repeat for the other half. In the next row, we simply knit a simple column not for the column of the previous row, but for the center of our arch. We get three arches instead of 4. In this row, the center of the heart will also change - instead of one column it will be necessary to couple the pair. Repeat mirror image of the second half. In the next row there are already two arches. And in the center of each column we knit again a pair. We divide the pairs of columns with three loops. And again we repeat mirror image. This is the last whole series. Next we will knit the halves separately. In this row we have only one arche from the air loops. From the central group of columns we knit two pairs of columns with a chain of 3 loops between them - the same as at the beginning of the row. Knitting is unfolded. In the penultimate row, there are no more arches, instead of them just a simple column. The beginning and end of the series are the same as in all previous series. We finish one half of our heart. To do this, we connect two bars from the center of the initial group of the series. And a couple of columns from the center of the finite group of the series. Now back to the place where we began to knit the halves separately. We use for this purpose small arches from three air loops. We finish symmetrically the second half. For greater beauty we will tie our heart. We will tie it in the same way with arches of 3 loops. A sweet and affectionate heart is ready. It remains only to hide the strings and steam off. You can associate a different color pair with it.
