Mini Pride Heart Knitting Pattern
Be gay, knit hearts.
$1 from each Pride Heart pattern sale in June and July will go to funding the QT Library Kickstarter. QT Library is a nonprofit brick-and-mortar LGBTQ+ library in Boston, Massachusetts designed to nurture the curiosity and magic of the queer and trans community through centralized resources and curated programs held in an affirming space.
These mini pride hearts are quick to knit and are the perfect way to celebrate your identity! Sew a pin to the back to create a wearable piece, hang a ribbon from the top to make a Christmas ornament, or stuff with dried lavender and keep one in every drawer. Make some for yourself and all your queer friends!
