With a crochet hook and some scrap yarn you´ll make these cute, tiny crochet hearts in a few minutes. And with Valentine´s Day right around the corner, they´re perfect as decorations on a homemade card.
DESIGN AND PATTERN: Hege Espeland Lygre
What you´ll need
- Scrap yarn
- Crochet hook that goes with your yarn (check the label)
- ch(s) (chain(s) – Watch video
- sl st (slip stitch) – Watch video
- dc (double crochet) – Watch video
- tr (triple/treble crochet) – Watch video
- MR (Magic ring) – Watch video
Make a MR. Tighten it until the ring is about 1 cm (about half an inch).
Then you crochet the following stitches in the MR:
(3 ch, 3 tr, 3 dc, 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch, 3 dc, 3 tr, 3 ch, 1 sl st)
Tighten the magic ring until the opening is closed. Cut off and sew in the ends.
With some thick paper (I used watercolor paper), a pen and some glue you can easily make your own card for your mom on Mother´s Day or for your love on Valentine´s Day.
I recommend using a pencil to sketch out the words before you go over it with a pen/marker. Glue on as many hearts as you want, and voila – you have your own homemade card.
The hearts can also be used to decorate presents. On the photos they´re used on Christmas presents, but they´re just as perfect on birthday gifts and other type of presents.
Good luck! 🙂
