Granny's Heart

I made these little hearts out of Red Heart worsted weight yarn and an H hook. The yarn label is long gone so I don't know what the color is called - some kind of pink.


To start, make the first round of a granny square. There are lots of ways to start, to make this one: into a "magic circle" or chain circle, slip stitch then chain 5. Into the ring, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, 2 dc. Join with sl st in the 3rd ch of the starting 5:


Pull the tail tight to close the middle circle. Do not turn, slip stitch into the first ch 2 space:


Make 5 dc in the center dc of the next 3dc group:


Slip stitch into next ch2 space:


5 dc into middle dc of next 3dc group:


Slip stitch into next ch2 space:


Finish off and weave in ends!
