Free Knitting Pattern - Small Heart

My current project is a lady bug I am turning into a love bug. All lady bug need black spots and for my love bug it needed heart shaped spots. I looked all over the place and could not find a good pattern. So I made a heart knitting pattern and I am going to share it with you.
