These lovely little heart hangers make a quick and beautiful little project. They make great gifts, and are ideal for using up scraps of 4ply. Although blocking is not crucial, it can easily be done at the end (unless lavender or other dried flowers are added to the stuffing), and does help to even out and neaten the fair isle pattern. Note that whilst the first few rounds are fiddly, they do get easier as the heart gets bigger.
