Crochet Heart

Pin It
What better way to celebrate my first Valentine's Day as a fully fledged crochet addict, than to crochet a heart or two.  I had a fabulous time working on this pattern and experimenting with different yarns and cottons.  For the hearts pictured, I've used an 8ply wool with a size 4 crochet hook, a 3ply cotton with a size 3 hook and a Milford "Mercer" ombre thread with size 3 hook. 




Pattern

Chain 11
Skip one chain, work Single Crochet along the row to the end of the chains, Chain one.
Turn work, skip first stitch and single crochet along the row.
Continue crocheting rows until a square has formed.

Slip Stitch along the outer edge of the square to the centre (approx 5 stitches), Chain 2, Slip Stitch into base of chain, Continue to slip stitch until the end of the row

Triple crochet into the chain loop nine times, forming a fan shape, slip stitch to the end of the row

Continue to Slip Stitch half way along next side of the original square, Chain 2, Slip Stitch into the base of chain, continue to Slip Stitch to the end of the row.  Triple Crochet into the Chain loop 9 times, forming a fan, Slip Stitch into the end of the row, which will be in the centre of the two fans you have now formed.






Single Crochet around the entire edge of the heart.  Block to finish



Happy Valentine's Day
