Crochet Heart Garland

It may be a little early to decorate for Valentine’s Day, but I’m tired of the winter decorations already. But then I realized that I don’t have any V-Day decorations. So I’ve set out to make some. The first thing I’ve made is a crochet heart garland. It took me many tries to get the right size heart. I think this one is perfect!

Here’s how to make a heart:

Rnd 1: Make a magic circle, ch 3 (counts as first dc),  9 dc into the circle. Pull the circle tight and join with sl st in top of beg ch.

Rnd 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), 4 dc in the first stitch, and 1 dc in each of next three stitches. (Dc, tr, dc) in the next stitch. (You now have half a heart.) Dc in each of next three stitches. 5 dc into the next stitch. Ss into the last stitch.

Rnd 3: Change color and ch 1. Sc in the next stitch. 2 sc in each of next three stitches. Sc in each of next five stitches. (Sc, dc, sc) in the next stitch (this will form the bottom of the heart), sc in each of next five stitches, 2 sc in each of next three stitches, sc in the last stitch. Fasten off and weave in ends.

If you have any questions, let me know!
