An ICU nurse is asking for people to send pairs of hand-made hearts, to try to give comfort to relatives of people who die alone in hospital.

Ravelry have several free heart patterns.

Hi Op, I know this thread was set up at the start of April but do you know if hospitals are still asking for paired hearts please? Thanks!

I don't know. I'm just chugging on making and sending them, at the rate of one or two pairs a week. I put some sweets or little chocolate bars for the staff in each package, so I doubt they mind receiving them!
