Happy Valentine’s day!

These little guys were the February project for a “Project of the Month” group on Ravelry.

The pattern is from the Mochimochiland blog found here.

Fun to knit, but not so fun to sew, I modified the pattern to knit it the round to the V.
Mods as follows:

Requires 4 or 5 dpns

CO 8 stitches, divide evenly between 2 needles.
Start knitting in round.
R1: *K1, knit front and back of stitch(Kfb), knit back and front of stitch(Kbf), K1*, twice.
R3: *K1, kfb, knit to last 2 stitches, kbf, K1*, twice.
R4: knit
Repeat rounds 3, 4 until there are 16 stitches on each needle.

Beginning of next round:

K1, K2tog, k5, turn.
P2tog, P2, P2tog, P1, turn.
bind off these 5 stitches. Cut long tail (~1 yd or more) and pull through last stitch.
Weave tail down to bottom of V.
K5, K2tog, K1, (on next needle:) K1, K2tog, K5. Turn.
P2tog, P2, P2tog, P1, : P1. P2tog, P2, P2tog. Turn. (you’re working on the needle furthest from you or you have all stitches on one needle)
Bind off 10 stitches and pull tail through last stitch.
Weave tail down to bottom of V.
K5, K2tog, K1, turn
P1. P2tog, P2, P2tog, turn.
bind off last 5 stitches.
sew up bottom point, stuff and mattress stitch the top closed.

  1. Thank you for your in-the-round modifications! I love anything in the round and I will make the rest of them this way.

  2. Thanks for posting this! I’m new to knitting in the round and wasn’t quite sure how to modify the pattern!
