Knitted Valentine Tutorial

One of my students asked me how to knit a heart. 

  Here is the pattern I came up with:

Using size 7 needles and superfine yarn**
(I started at the bottom point of the heart)

Cast on 2 stitches
Row 1: K all sts.
Row 2: K1, yo, K to end of row
Repeat Row 2 until there are 20 st.
Divide row in half using another needle or safety pin as place holder
Start with connected yarn end
Next Row: K1 k2tog, yo, k2tog k to end
Continue until 4 st remain
K4 sts
bind off
Repeat for other side of heart top

**use any size needle and yarn you'd like
I just had these handy

I think it jazzes up my blah winter coat for the weekend
