Hearts Pattern

Terminology

Materials: yarn KARTOPU GONCA (100% acrylic, 100 grams, 300 m) in red and maroon, 2.1 mm crotchet hook, polyester fiberfill stuffing, satin ribbon.

Heart crocheting pattern with explanations and auxiliary pictures is described in “Heart with bow” article. Here I’ll give only the general pattern and proportions of the heart.

For smaller heart, hemispheres are the same as described in the article mentioned above, but without the 5th row. Then crochet common part for both hemispheres.

Rnd 5: 11 sc of first hemisphere + 10 sc of second, at the junction we leave one free stitch at each side, it will form a hole between spheres which must be sewed at the end (21)
Rnd 6: dec with skip (get three stitches, the middle is skipped, and only two outer are crocheted), 8 sc, dec with skip, 7 sc (17 st)
Rnd 7: dec with skip, 6 sc, dec with skip, 5 sc (13 st)
Rnd 8: dec with skip, 4 sc, dec with skip, 3 sc (9 st)
Rnd 9: dec with skip, 2 sc, dec with skip, 1 sc (5 st), stuff with filler and close the hole.

For bigger heart use this pattern:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6 st)
Rnd 2: inc 3 times (12 st)
Rnd 3: (1 sc, inc)*6 times (18 st)
Rnd 4-5: 18 sc

To make a strip on heart, crochet 5th row of one of hemispheres with red thread.

Then common rows:

Rnd 6: 17 sc one hemisphere + 16 sc second, at the junction one free stitch at each hemisphere (33)
Rnd 7: dec with skip, 14 sc, dec with skip, 13 sc (29 st)
Rnd 8: dec with skip, 12 sc, dec with skip, 11 sc (25 st)
Rnd 9: dec with skip, 10 sc, dec with skip, 9 sc (21 st)
Rnd 10: dec with skip, 8 sc, dec with skip, 7 sc (17 st)
Rnd 11: dec with skip, 6 sc, dec with skip, 5 sc (13 st)
Rnd 12: dec with skip, 4 sc, dec with skip, 3 sc (9 st)
Rnd 13: dec with skip, 2 sc, dec with skip, 1 sc (5 st), stuff with filler and close the hole.

I hope that after my diligent explanations you got two pretty plump hearts :) Now, all is left is to wish you success in your creativity and…

Love and be loved, for it’s wonderful! ;)
