This sweater is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. Sleeves and body are worked separately to the upper body. Then all pieces are joined for raglan shaping.

The Heart pattern is worked using the stranded method of changing colors. Hold both colors together throughout the entire round on rounds 1-6, 11-16, and 21-26. After each row of hearts is complete, break the appropriate CC. Do not carry up the work.

The Sweetheart Sweater is also available as part of the Everybody Play Now! e-book and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
