    my tutorial for the pearl stitch (background) is here :
    tutorial knitted polymer clay (reverse stocking stitch) by ClaireWallis


    tutorial for creating the knit stitch (cables) is here: www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367662.0

    i worked the background first then laid the cables in the required position and cut out the shape with a small cookie cutter. i used a length of extruded clay to frame the heart and baked. i then added a thin sheet of clay to the back and attached the brooch fastening.
    hope this helps : )
