This one was a bit of work.

There are several versions of this pattern. The one I chose to focus on has an extra row of plain weave on R2. Other versions eliminate that row and expand the heart to the very edges of the square. It’s easy enough to create a Solid Heart by just filling the shape with U3s. Double Outline hearts can sometimes be a bit tricky. If I feel so inclined (or if someone requests it) I can work on Double Outlines for the other versions.

Back in August I developed a new technique I call “Reverse Warping Method,” or RWM. It entails starting the warping process with L4, at Cr4, instead of Cr1; L1 becomes the weaving layer.

My first attempt with RWM was a plain weave square. The only discernible difference was that I ended up with a longer tail at Cr1 than usual; Cr4’s tail was shorter.
