What you’ll need
I crocheted the purple heart with light worsted yarn and crochet hook size 3,5 mm. It measures 9,5 by 9,5 cm (3,7 by 3,7 inches). The pink heart is 6,5 by 6,5 cm (2,5 by 2,5 inches) and it is crocheted with 6 strand embroidery floss and a 2 mm crochet hook. You can use heavier thread and bigger hook, or thinner thread and smaller hook and you will have a bigger or a smaller motif.
You will also need a needle to weave in loose ends and a pair of scissors.
Make a magic ring (or ch 4 and join with sl st in first ch to form a ring).
- Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in the ring, (ch 2, 3 dc in the ring) 3 times, ch 2, pull the thread end to tighten the ring, join with sl st in 3rd ch of first ch3.
- Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 2 dc, * in ch-2 sp work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) **, dc in next 3 dc; repeat from * 3 times and from * to ** once more, join with sl st in 3rd ch of first ch3.
- Round 3: Sl st in next 4 stitches and in ch-2 sp, in 4th dc work 12 tr, sl st in ch-2 sp, in 4th st work 12 tr, sl st in ch-2 sp.
- Round 4: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next 7 dc, in ch-2 sp work (dc, htr, ch 2, htr, dc), dc in next 7 dc, dc in ch-2 sp, dc in next 3 tr, 2 dc in next 6 tr, 2 hdc in next tr, sc in next tr, sl st in next tr, in ch-2 sp (from Round 2) and in next tr, sc in next tr, 2 hdc in next tr, 2 dc in next 6 tr, dc in next 3 tr, join with sl st in 3rd ch of first ch3.
