Feminine heart ribbing stitch pattern

The heart ribbing stitch pattern is so pretty! It looks like stacked hearts on a reverse stockinette background. This is the perfect stitch pattern for adding a bit of femininity to a garment.

You could use it anywhere you would have used a regular ribbing, or you could make a whole sweater or blanket with this stitch. Your imagination is the only limit here 🙂

So grab some yarn and knitting needles and let us dive right in!
