How to crochet a heart
I used worsted weight yarn and a size I crochet hook to create this 1.5" sweet, little heart. Use it as an applique or embellishment.
chain (ch) 4
3 treble crochet (tr), 3 double crochet (dc), ch1, 3dc, 3tr, ch2, slip stitch -- all into first chain
ch3, 1sc and 1hdc (in first tr stitch from previous round); 3 hdc in next st; 2hdc in next st; 1sc in next 3 st; ch1, 1sc, 1dc, 1sc (in midpoint st), ch 1; 1sc in next 3 st; 2hdc in next st; 3 hdc in next st; 1hdc and 1sc in next st; ch3 and slip stitch into circle; fasten off
I usually work mine a bit into a nice shape. Et Voila!
