 It’s February and we are officially in the month of love. To celebrate that I design a textured little heart, using half double crochet in the 3rd loop.

With this pattern you can make a heart in no time and you can use it as decoration or a special gift for someone.

Materials:

For this project I use DK wool yarn and a 3 mm crochet hook, but feel free to use any type of yarn and a corresponding hook size.

You will also need fiberfill for stuffing, tapestry needle, stitch marker and scissors.

Τελικές Διαστάσεις:

Περίπου 8 εκ ψηλές, με το προτεινόμενο πάχος νήματος και βελονάκι.

Δείγμα:

Το δείγμα δεν είναι απαραίτητο σε αυτό το σχέδιο. Παρόλα αυτά διαφορετικό πάχος νήματος μπορεί να αλλάξει τις τελικές διαστάσεις.

Abbreviations:

This pattern is written in US terminology.

hdc: half double crochet

hdc2tog: half double crochet 2 together (decrease)

st(s): stitch(es)

In this project, almost all hdc are worked in the third loop. If you don’t know how to work that stitch, you can find directions here.

Instructions:

Unless otherwise noted all the individual parts are worked in continuous rounds, use a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds.

For now on we are only working in the third loop of the hdc.

Round 2: 2 hdc in each st around. (12 sts).

Round 3: (1 hdc in the next 5 sts, 2 hdc in the next st) 2 times. (14 sts).

Round 4: 1 hdc in each st around. (14 sts).

Round 5: (1 hdc in the next 6 sts, 2 hdc in the next st) 2 times. (16 sts).
