Knitted Heart Placemat

I knitted a small placemat for my coffee break in the shape of a heart. The heart was knitted sideways and in the end I crocheted a backstitch (single crochet) around the entire heart. Each row is knitted differently and that is why it requires a lot of concentration and patience. I knitted the heart with a seed stitch.
