part 2 of the instructions: make and add the hearts
This is a tutorial for Step 2 in making your Alice Mitts: making the hearts to sew onto your mitts. I chose to knit my hearts, because I like the different textures of the knit and crochet stitches together. If you don’t know how to knit, you can of course crochet your hearts.
There are many ways to knit hearts but this is how I learned from my mom. If you have another technique you like, feel free to use that instead!
