Love is in the air... and hanging from the door frames...
Here's a free pattern and tutorial for a little Valentine's Day seasonal decor to cozy up your home!

My garland was about 5 feet long and used about 27 mini hearts!

This little garland is happiest when all the hearts can rest against the wall or door frame, instead of swooping loosely. Otherwise they tend to face the floor a bit.

    Tie a knot. String heart. Tie a second knot. Then repeat, allowing about an inch and a half or so of space between each heart. It looks like this.

    It can be tricky to get the knot to land where you want it, but here's some tips.

    Make a loop about where you want your knot to go, and pass your yarn needle through the loop.

    Hold the loop down with your fingers as you pull the needle through.

    It takes a little pushing and pulling but your knot shouldn't land too far off from where you want it.
