Valentine's Day and Women's Heart Health Month pattern

My Phat Fiber Sampler Box pattern this month is a tiny heart pin pattern. I call it "Heartfelt Reminder" to commemorate Women's Heart Health Month. I sent kits for the lucky folks who get a box this month. The pattern for sale has instructions for making larger hearts in different weights of yarn.

2 tiny hearts handmade with love

Tiny hearts of fingering weight yarn, just under 1.5" wide and 1.25" long. The pink and purple is my hand dyed from WC Mercantile's ( Merino and Tencel, my colorway "Star Ruby Sapphire and Amethyst". The red is also my hand dyed using Knit Pick's sock yarn base, colorway "Garnets and Rubies". The kits contain yarn, pin back and "Hand made with love" charm.
