Make a Hanging Knit Heart for Your Door

I’m all about the hearts this Valentine’s day! So of course I’m making a hanging knit heart to hang on my front door, letting my sweet family know they are loved!


As I’m starting to get the hang of knitting, I’m becoming more and more in love and looking for all sorts of simple patterns I can knit in a day! I found this pattern for a knit heart and it’s a perfect project. It’s super quick, you’ll be knitting these to display all of the house.

Yes, your heart might have a few holes on your first go of this pattern, (mine certainly does), but have fun knitting!


Hanging Knit Heart

1. First make your heart from this pattern – Knit Heart Pattern via Julie & the Knits.

How to hang your heart:

2. You’ll have 4 tails at the end of this project, so hide the pointed tip tail and the center tail, leaving your 2 tails over the heart bumps long.

3. Thread one of the tails to the outer edge of your hump to even them both out for hanging.

4. Tie them together at the top and now it’s ready to hang.


You can also thread the tails back through the heart piece and it makes for a fun flat heart. Maybe a sweetheart coaster? Or stitch a pin to the back for a fun heart-shaped pin lapel.

Or simply stick your knitting needles right through the heart for Cupid’s arrow!


Either way you display your heart, it’s a lot of fun to make! Find the knit heart tutorial at Julie and the Knits.
