Heart garland

hearts

A really simple and I think effective garland.

The basic pattern consists of a 3 round heart. This can be finished at any stage to make small, medium or large hearts.

All you need then is to arrange them into a pattern and join with chain.

Requires

  • 4 mm hook
  • Red DK yarn

Round 1: ch 4, then into 1st chain work:

  • 3tc
  • 3htc
  • ch
  • tc
  • ch
  • 3htc
  • 3 tc
  • 3 ch, join into centre
  • 17 working stitches (3 ch count as 1 treble)

Round 2

  • 3 ch
  • dc into 3rd chain from previous row,
  • 2 htc
  • htc
  • htc, dc
  • dc into next 4 stitches
  • into point (tc) – dc, 2 ch, dc
  • dc into next 4 stitches
  • dc, htc
  • htc
  • 2htc
  • dc
  • 3 ch, sl st into centre
  • 26 working stitches (3 ch count as 1 treble)

Round 3

  • 3 ch
  • dc into 3rd chain from previous round
  • 2dc
  • dc into next 10 st
  • then into 2 ch point: dc, 3 ch, dc  –
  • dc into next 10 st
  • 2dc
  • dc
  • ch 3
  • join with sl st into centre

 

To join as a garland simply crochet a chain, joining twice to the top of each heart.

I tend to do 8 chains between each heart, with a 3, 4 or 5 chain between the joins on each heart depending whether they are small medium or large.
