Put the stitches on the stitch holder back on the needles. Join the yarn in the middle of the heart and knit 1 row. Then follow directions for rows 50 – 56.

Use the tapestry needle to weave in the ends. At this point you will have a plain heart washcloth.

You can dress them up a little more with some basic crochet or embroidery and contrasting chenille.

This heart is edged in crab stitch (single crochet going left to right). A blanket stitch would work as a pretty edging too.

Even simpler is a simple straight stitch.
