A Sweet Heart


With it being Valentines day this week, I really wanted to crochet a little heart of some sort. I looked around Pinterest and came across this lovely tutorial.

Although it took me a few attempts to get right, I am now happy with how my little heart has turned out! I used a 3mm hook and scraps of Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK, with some pretty CK ribbon to make a hanging loop.

What have you been crocheting this week? As always, if you would like me to link up to your post, just leave a little note in the comments. And speaking of comments, thank you for all the lovely ones recently, they are always read and always appreciated....

  1. That heart is so, so lovely. I might have a go at that today as I am determined to have a 'hearty' time today :)
    I have been knitting this's a slow process for me xx

  2. That's a lovely heart.

  3. Very cute! This week (well, for a looooooong time actually), I've been working on a crochet baby blanket. I'll have to take some 'in progress' photos and write a post about it. I may be finished in 3 or 4 years' time!!! ;-)

  4. Oh-so-sweet! Love your little heart (and the pretty ribbon too!) - I've started my chevron blankie again (3rd attempt but think I've got it right this time!) so hoping to link up with your CAL later today :-)
    Happy Thursday!

  5. Love your little heart. The colours are sweet!
    I'm still working on my granny chevron throw. I might write a post about later when I get the chance.
    Have a lovely Valentine's Day!
