And now we see why I showed you how to do the lark’s head stitch in my last post! Here’s a free stitch pattern for you, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This combination of yarnovers came up as part of a draft secret code stitch pattern I’m putting together. It’s not meant as secret code by itself though. I just lifted it out of a larger stitch pattern because I liked the little hearts. Secret: I don’t usually like hearts.
The Lark in the Morning is the title of a traditional, slightly bawdy, song.

Lark’s head: twist the first loop of a double yarn over before you knit or purl it; twist the other loop in the opposite direction.

I’m not likely to design anything with this stitch pattern; feel free to use it for whatever you like, commercial or not. (Credit would be appreciated but is not required.)
