‘Crochet Heart’, two words which I have searched many times over and over, never really falling for any designs 😉 get it? lol ok, enough lame jokes. Last week I offered my services to Mr A’s teacher to make some hearts for Mother’s Day, and once again searched those two little words for inspiration or better yet, a pattern that was already available. Nothing was tickling my fancy like usual so I thought I’d have a play and see what I could make. As promised earlier today on Instagram, here is the pattern…
Materials: Your choice of yarn and corresponding hook size and some scissors.
Side 1: Make a magic ring, ch3, 3tr, 3dc, ch1, tr
Side 2: ch1, 3dc, 3tr, ch3, sl st to magic ring. Do not pull the magic ring closed yet.
Sl st in each of the ch3 from side 1 in round 1, 3sc in 1st tr, 2sc in next tr, sc in next 4 stitches, sc in top of the chain stitch (see photo if unsure), (sc, ch1, sl st to front loop of tr, sc) in tr, sc in top of the chain stitch, sc in next 4 stitches, 2sc in next st, 3sc in last tr, sl st in each of the ch3 going into the centre of the heart. Cut yarn and pull through.
Now you can pull the end of the yarn you just cut through the centre of the heart to the back, close magic ring tight, making sure that the heart sits nicely.
So there you have it, an easy crochet heart. I hope you enjoy making plenty of these. Feel free to tag me in your post if you share on Instagram. xo
