Center of the heart:
Crochet on hook size 2.5 mm [US C/2] with 1 thread of Cotton Viscose and 2 threads of Glitter
1st row: Crochet 17 ch
2nd row: Turn, crochet 1 dc into the 8th ch from the hook, then 2 ch, skip 2 ch and crochet 1 dc in the following ch, 2 ch, skip 2 ch and 1 dc in the following ch, 2 ch, skip 2 ch and 1 dc in the first ch from previous row.
3rd row: Turn, 5 ch, 1 dc in the 2nd dc from previous row, *2 ch, skip 2 ch, 1 dc in the following dc*, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times.
4th and 5th row: Crochet as 3rd row.
Now you have a square existing off 16 small “diamonds”.

Heart arches: Crochet along 2 of the squares sides as follows: 3 sc in the first diamond, 3 sc in the second diamond, 5 ch (= heart arch), 3 sc in the third diamond, 3 sc in the forth diamond, 1 ch ( = corner ch), 3 sc. Then 3 sc in the next diamond, 5 ch (= heart arch), 3 sc in the third diamond and 3 sc in the forth diamond.

Top: Turn, crochet 15 tr in the heart arch (= 1 top), 1 sc in the corner ch, 15 tr the the next heart arch (= second top), 1 sl st in the first of the 3 sc in the first diamond, finish with a ch.
Turn. Crochet 1 sc in each of the tr on the first top, then 30 ch to create the loop for hanging the heart. Then continue to crochet 1 sc into each tr on the second top. Continue to crochet along the squares third edge with 3 sc into each diamond, 1 ch (at the point of the heart) then along the 4th side of the square with 3 sc in each diamond and finish with a sl st in the first sc on round.
Cut and sew the thread tight.

For the heart to hang nicely and to stiffen it – dip it in sugared water or Sprite or other colorless soda and hang to dry.
