How to Crochet Hearts
We women love to make hearts…..the fact that the diagrammatic representation of the heart has no similarity to the original organ hasn’t fazed us at all. We have decided that this is what we would like the organ to look like. Crocheters from all walks of life have created such beautiful designs that I find it difficult to choose which and what patterns to include here…
Basic and simple Heart Pendant
Method to Make this very simple Heart
Make a Magic Ring.
Then one chain, one sc, 1 hdc, 9 dcs, 1 trch (treble crochet), 9 dcs, 1 hdc, 1 sc each one chined into the ring.
ss into the base of the first chain.
Then pull on the tail of the magic ring to reduce the space of the loop…..Voila you have a lovely crochet heart…String it onto a satin or silk ribbon…and you have a lovely piece of jewellery…all made by yourself.

After Row 12 . Cut thread and tuck in the tails.
