Here’s another crocheting video from Mandy and Little Birdie Secrets - this time it’s a heart. You will need to know how to make a slip knot, chain stitch, as well as double and treble/ triple crochet stitches (sassy sophelia has an easy to follow YouTube video which can teach you these skills).

What you need:

  • crochet hook
  • yarn

Steps:

  • start with a slip knot and chain 4
  • then do 3 treble/triple crochet stitches into the 1st chain stitch
  • then do 3 double crochet stitches into the same 1st chain stitch
  • chain 1
  • 1 treble/triple crochet stitch. This is the point of the heart, now we just reverse the pattern to do the other half of the heart.
  • chain 1
  • 3┬ádouble crochet stitches into the same 1st chain stitch
  • 3 treble/triple crochet stitches into the 1st chain stitch
  • chain 3 and slip stitch into the 1st chain again
  • cut your thread and pull it through the loop to fasten off.
  • lastly, use your fingers to shape the heart.

Tips:

  • the smaller the yarn and hook, the smaller the heart
  • Skip to my Lou has a great heart garland pattern, so cute, and basically the same pattern with a few more rounds.
