Wind Rose Heart - free pattern.
I've written up the pattern for the heart I shared on Instagram on Valentine's Day. I have named it
The Wind Rose Heart
Wind Rose is an old name for the compass points on a map, sometimes called a compass rose. The pattern uses spike stitches, and also back and front post stitches.
The pattern is available as a FREE PDF download on Ravelry >>If you would like to keep a copy in your library.
