The newest additions to the KnitHeartStrings Store product line-up are now available for your shopping pleasure.
Knit a bit of fictional history with this 39-star placemat size version of a red, white and blue flag. The lacy feather and fan stripes symbolize the flag waving in the breeze. The 5-pointed stars are created with a nifty combination of knit stitch and simple embroidery.
Note: This Americana pattern is not an actual U.S. flag, nor makes any claims to be. Out of reverence, of course you would want to protect and care for it as you would any of the precious items you knit.

Lace Embellished Towel
With this pretty lace edging, you can turn an ordinary towel into something extraordinary. Whether you make it for yourself or a gift for someone else, I promise that your lace-edged towel will have a special place in the heart and home.
Snow is beautiful, especially when you can stay warm and cuddly indoors while knitting snowflakes.

Heirloom EasyCare 8-ply Yarn
A DK weight yarn in soft natural fibers that is made from high quality merino/merino cross wool, with a cable twist for extra durability. This superwash cable-twist yarn is incredibly soft and bouncy with a memory, and yet will last a lifetime. 50g ball/approx 110 yards. Plan for sweaters at 5½ sts per inch on knitting needles size 6 US/4mm; or for socks at 6½ sts per inch on needles size 2 US/3mm.
Beaded Basket Weave Mosaic Hat
Do you love beads and glitz? Then this one is for you. Although the colorwork might appear involved, the slip-stitch color knitting is simple because you only need to handle one yarn color at a time.
The beads give an added depth of color and look of complexity to an otherwise simple beaded knitting technique.
Beaded Basketweave Scarf and Anklets Ensemble e-Pattern
The interplay of the knit-purl basketweave texture and beaded knitting makes this a fun-knit project. The stitch pattern used for the center portion of the scarf is a slip-stitch pseudo ribbing that gives an extra-soft cushion of comfort around your neck. Split-cuff anklets can be worn with the split either to outer or inner sides of ankles.
Beaded Diamond Mosaic Ensemble e-Pattern
Mix-and-match ensemble of hat, crew socks and fingerless mittens to knit in two colors of DK weight yarn of your choice and size 6/0 seed beads.

Troika Wrap-Around Faroese Shawl e-Pattern
A wonderfully simple and fun shawl that is shaped like a giant butterfly. Knitted in a 3-ball garter stitch technique from the top-down, this is a great pattern for using a mix of novelty and stash yarns.
Lacie Blankie e-Pattern
Even adults deserve a favorite blanket in which to cuddle and shut out the cares of the world! I am a firm believer that not all lace needs to be in tiny yarn on tiny needles. This beautiful and practical lace blanket is a perfect example of "moose lace", i.e. lace knitted in a large gauge in heavier yarn. The lace makes this blanket lighter in weight for its size.
The Skinny on Lace e-Pattern
Create a statement in lace, and wear it with pizzazz. Slimming chevrons and stylized fleur-de-lis arranged symmetrically in narrow lace bands are knitted from end- to-end in one piece — no grafting or seams to sew! This design is ideal for those who like their scarf ends to match without the hassle of grafting or provisional cast ons.
Easy Asymmetry Wrap e-Pattern
The ideal pattern for creating your own one-of-a-kind designer shawl with a mix of fancy and/or classic yarns. The shaping is done with a one-row super-easy lace pattern that knits naturally on the diagonal.
Choose any 3 yarns in harmonizing colors and a variety of textures to your liking. Each of the three yarns is knit for one row, then the sequence repeated, thus giving lots of color and textural interaction. Have fun!
Warm Hearts Comfortghan e-Pattern
A snuggly lap blanket or afghan is a comfort to knit and give to loved ones. Here is a design for a handsome small blanket in a "warm hearts" theme appropriate for anyone. A bonus is that the stitch pattern is different yet pleasing on both sides — it's like getting two blankets for the effort of making one!
Technique Teddy Bear e-Pattern
Knit this small adorable teddy bear and let Teddy help teach you knitting techniques used in shaping 3-dimensional forms.
Filigree Lace-edged Baby e-Pattern
Knit a special blanket for a special baby that is impressive, yet practical. The Filigree Lace-edged Baby Blanket combines a pleasingly reversible Filigree lace stitch around the edges with a cushiony garter stitch center for cuddly warmth. This predominantly solid-fabric blanket is great for those who want a bit of lace, yet are concerned about holes in which baby could get their fingers caught.
Moose Lace Afghan e-Pattern
This attractive, practical afghan is an example of "moose lace", i.e. lace knitted in a heavier yarn than usual. The lace makes this afghan lighter in weight for its size, yet pleasingly warm and snuggly.
Dolly Faroese Shawl e-Pattern
Turning tradition upside down — This small, simple shawl is designed to learn and practice neck-down construction and basic techniques for making a Faroese shawl in the traditional style — except upside down! Instructions for 3 variations are included. The size is suitable for 18" dolls and teddy bears, making it a delightful gift for a lucky doll or teddy bear lover!
Lacy Maizy e-Pattern
Lacy Maizy features crisp outlines of cable stitches against a lace background to resemble ears of corn and give a nod to maize yarn.
Crossed Loop Market Bag e-Pattern
Make a colorful string bag for your next eco-friendly shopping trip. A bag that scrunches down to next to nothing until needed; then expands to accommodate more fiber stash purchases or whatever. It's a great bag to take to the beach or poolside, too!
Put on the Glitz Shrug e-Pattern
This lusciously flowing shrug in delicate cabled lace speaks for itself. It is knitted cuff to cuff with no seams to sew. Our model is appropriately made in a soft metallic-enhanced yarn plied with tiny glass seed beads to really "put on the glitz".
