Free Crochet Heart Directions Are Here


I have been making so many of these hearts, I just love the pattern and they stitch up pretty quick.
I added small flowers to the tops or you could embroider on top too. Crochet some small flowers or make some from wool or how about some stitched spider web roses with wool leaves. I always wanted to have a heart collection and this is my start along with the stitched ones from the "Heart To Heart" pattern. I am in the process of making about 12 of these hearts and stitching them together to make 6 small  puffy hearts. I will string them together with huge beads to separate them, then I will hang them in one log vertical string of hearts and hang it in my office. I just love color :))

Well enough of my jabber here are the directions:

Chain 2
2 sc in 2nd chain from hook, chain 1 and turn
2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next sc, chain 1 turn
2 sc in 1st sc, sc in the next 2 sc, chain 1 turn
Continue with this pattern of making 2 sc in the first sc of each row. this is your increase of each row.
Continue with the pattern until you have 16 sc across.At the end of this row ch 1 and turn.
Next: skip 3 sc and make 10 tr = treble (triple) crochet or you can use a double crochet instead of the triple, you can hardly notice the difference :))-- do this in the 4th ch from hook, (1st hump)
skip 3 more sc and then sc in the next sc (which is the 8th sc from hook), this will make your valley,
then skip the next 3 sc's and make another hump of 10 tr = treble (triple) crochet   {which is the 12th sc from hook},
then you will slip stitch in the last sc of the row.


You are all finished. weave in your ends and have fun. I actually make 2 for each heart puff and stitch them together. (Dont forget to stuff it with fiberfill before you close it up if you want it puffy)
Once you get the pattern down of increasing the row and making up to 16sc across, then always skipping
3 sc across the top for the humps you will be a machine, HAHA!!
Here Are Some Photos Of The Progress And I just made this one- I did add The Spider Web Rose




















Mary Corbet has a great tutorial on the spider web rose. I just added some wool leaves after I made the rose :) I also did not stuff this heart but sewed 2 together to make it extra thick.


I hope you enjoy these and if you make some and would like to share a photo I would love to post it.
 Have a good night And I will have the drawing on Saturday for the give-aways so keep leaving thoses messages, it's not to late
