Bleeding Hearts for Justice

As a Valentine's Gift to you I am thrilled to publish this free pattern for my Bleeding Hearts Lace Collar. Yes, I offer this for no monetary expense, but I do request one simple act.  As you use this pattern I request that you practice a heart centeredness.  As you enjoy the relaxation of knitting focus on your heart with a goal of radiating out calm, harmony and loving heart coherence.

At this time when our country is seeking justice for the actions of domestic terrorists who attacked our democracy I felt called to create this design as a way to process my angst, but to also shift that into a more positive action.  It is also a homage to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who the country lost in the fall of 2020.   Please enjoy this quick knit.  Knit it up in a thicker yarn with heavier yarn and you have a wonderful neck-warmer!!!  View the flip book version below or print the pdf Bleeding Hearts Collar Knitting Pattern

    Thank you for this lovely pattern. I am in Australia but have wonderful American relatives and my heart ached at some of the recent events. I will make this to honour the best you have to offer.

      Hi Susan,
      I’m so curious if you were able to make the collar. I would love to see and hear how it went for you! Thank you so much for your message (I know it was some time ago!)
