As promised I have continued on with my “heart” week and crocheted a few hearts out of scrap fabric, tshirt yarn and twine. These little lovelies are very easy to create and also great rustic decorations. I have fallen in love, they may have to stay up past Valentine’s Day.
To crochet a heart:
1. Chain 4
From this point on, all stitches go into the first chain stitch in the row.
2. Do 3 triple crochets.
3. Do 3 double crochets.
4. Chain 1
Now Reverse, working your way around the first chain stitch.
5. Do 3 double crochets
6. Do 3 triple crochets
7. Finish with a slip stitch and tie off
Any now you have a heart! You can use whatever size needle or material that can be used as yarn.
