Heart Crochet

I saw this heart crochet on Pinterest (bottom shot) and thought I would give it a go last evening.  The instructions seemed clear enough.  I had previously watched a tutorial on crochet, also found on Pinterest.  Dana Beach has written a serious of fabulous lessons in her Crochet School.  I highly recommend them!  Her style is breezy and so easy to follow.  Tons of work was put into her videos and I thank her for that!  So, after watching the videos over a week or two, I felt I was ready to tackle the heart crochet pattern.  I read all the information that people had posted on Ravelry about the pattern, so I was a bit aware that it would be a challenge.  It took me several tries, but I managed to get a heart square that looked somewhat like it should (top photo).  I am not sure what I am going to do with it, but it was a fun evening in front of the tv.  My current Knervous Knitting project was somewhat stunned that I had picked up a new project to work on, let alone a CROCHET project!  I am sure I will be back to the afghan again tonight.  Today I am doing some office work then back to the map quilt.  Thanks for the comments and the good idea to use the quilt as a record of state visits!  Fun!  Jerilynn


  1. You could put this under you coffee cup, on one of your adorable pillows ( in the red chair) on the back of a denim vest or jacket, or whatever inspires you, and it will! I do love it.

  2. Very nice! I see small pillows, attached to a tote or stitched together for a throw.
