Lace Heart Shaped Panel Free Knitting Stitch

Knitting Bee has put together a lovely lace panel for you to knit with a heart shaped motif. Love the way the shapes intersect to create a stacked up hearts look, one heart is born out of the previous one and so on! This free knitting stitch is very easy to make once the basics of lace have been mastered and it knits up fairly quickly.

This knit stitch looks great from all angles and looks quite intricate and detailed. This would make a nice lace motif for the front of a summer tee.
