Winged Heart Tattoo

Out of ideas for mother's day? How about a knit winged heart tattoo?!

I've been working on this pattern for a while now but was struggling on what to do with the wings. And then it came to me quite suddenly this weekend: why felt them of course as my little Jujube would say!*


The felted wings worked out brilliantly - so cooshy and fluffy! And with just the right amount of stiffness so that they aren't droopy.


And just like that, this rocking little number is ready to soar out of my knitting bag and perhaps into yours. Get the free pattern from Jujube & Lolo here.

Happy knitting!

* I don't know where he picks up these expressions, but his current favourite is adding "of course" to the end of every sentence. What a kooky boy. I feel so lucky to get to spend my days hanging out with that little guy of mine. He's just pure sunshine!

  4. Love the pictures. He has such a sense of modeling knits, it uncanny. BTW, I haven't been able to download the file. I keep getting an error. Maybe it's on this end, 'coz others seem to have gotten it. I'll try again later.

    Happy knitting!

  11. Hi, for some reason I can't download the pattern... I'm getting error messages and can't seem to do anything about it.

    I love the pattern, and want to make one for my husband for father's day...

    Is there any other way to get it?

    Thanks.... love your blog.
