Have you seen a crochet heart like this? Surely it has been done?
However, I have searched The Great Googley-Moogley and have had no success in find the hearts I did. I made them one day while working on granny squares. I began to wonder what shapes could be made with grannys by adding or subtracting from them. This heart came from that session.
Do you think it looks like a heart?
My boys weren’t sure. Part of me is pleased to not have found my “invention”, but the other part says this has surely been done. And that maybe they didn’t share it because it was not heart-ish enough?
No matter. It’s fun to fiddle around and try new things.
Here’s the pattern:
Ch. 4, join.
Ch. 4, (3 dc, ch 1) 3 times, 2 dc into ring, join in 3rd ch..
Sl st in space, (ch 3, 2 dc, ch1, 3 dc in same space, ch 1) in corner, ( 3 dc, ch1, 3 dc, ch 1) in next 2 corners, (3 dc, ch1, 3 dc) in last corner.
Turn, (sl st into stitches 8 times, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 3, sl st in space) 2 times, sl st 7 times, sl st 2 down side of ch 3, sl st 2, tie off.
Block for better shape.
Use for garlands, gift toppers, appliques, art journaling, etc..
Please feel free to tell me if I made a mistake in the pattern. And tell me what you think of it – yay or nay?
