CROCHET INFO:
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end on the back side. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc on next round). NOTE: Insert a marker between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards.

WORKING 2 DC TOG:
* Insert hook in next st, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

HEART:
First work 2 halves top down, then place the 2 parts tog and continue to work in the round towards the bottom of the heart.
Start by working a Magic circle with Eskimo on hook size 5 mm - READ EXPLANATION ABOVE!
ROUND 1: Work 7 dc in the magic circle. READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE!
ROUND 2: 2 dc in every dc = 14 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 21 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in the next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 28 dc.
ROUND 5: * 1 dc in the next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 35 dc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 dc in every dc = 35 dc.
ROUND 7: * 1 dc in the next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 42 dc.
ROUND 8: Work 1 dc in every dc = 42 dc.
ROUND 9: * 1 dc in the next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 49 dc.
ROUND 10-11: Work 1 dc in every dc = 49 dc on the round.
ROUND 12: * 1 dc in the next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 56 dc.
ROUND 13-18: Work 1 dc in every dc = 56 dc on the round.
Cut the thread and keep 40 cm for assembly.
Work another half heart the same way but do not cut the thread to continue to next round.
Now place the 2 parts tog so that last dc from last round on both parts is against each other. Sew tog the next 8 dc on both parts with 1 stitch in every st, cut and fasten the thread. Pick up thread from the last dc from ROUND 18 on the second half heart (= now the mid of heart) and continue to work around both parts as follows:
ROUND 19: Work 1 dc in every dc = 96 dc.
ROUND 20: * 1 dc in the next 11 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 104 dc.
ROUND 21: Work 1 dc in every dc = 104 dc.
ROUND 22: * 1 dc in the next 12 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 112 dc.
ROUND 23-24: Work 1 dc in every dc = 112 dc on the round.
ROUND 25: * 1 dc in the next 26 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog * - Read explanation above, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 108 dc.
ROUND 26: Work 1 dc in every dc = 108 dc.
ROUND 27: * 1 dc in the next 25 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 104 dc.
ROUND 28: Work 1 dc in every dc = 104 dc.
ROUND 29: * 1 dc in the next 24 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 100 dc.
ROUND 30: Work 1 dc in every dc = 100 dc.
ROUND 31: * 1 dc in the next 23 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 96 dc.
ROUND 32: Work 1 dc in every dc = 96 dc.
ROUND 33: * 1 dc in the next 10 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 88 dc.
ROUND 34: Work 1 dc in every dc = 88 dc.
ROUND 35: * 1 dc in the next 9 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 80 dc.
ROUND 36: Work 1 dc in every dc = 80 dc.
ROUND 37: * 1 dc in the next 8 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 72 dc.
ROUND 38: Work 1 dc in every dc = 72 dc.
ROUND 39: * 1 dc in the next 7 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 64 dc.
ROUND 40: Work 1 dc in every dc = 64 dc.
ROUND 41: * 1 dc in the next 6 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 56 dc.
ROUND 42: Work 1 dc in every dc = 56 dc.
ROUND 43: * 1 dc in the next 5 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 48 dc.
ROUND 44: Work 1 dc in every dc = 48 dc.
ROUND 45: * 1 dc in the next 4 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 40 dc.
ROUND 46: Work 1 dc in every dc = 40 dc.
ROUND 47: * 1 dc in the next 3 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 32 dc.
ROUND 48: Work 1 dc in every dc = 32 dc.
ROUND 49: * 1 dc in the next 2 dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 24 dc.
ROUND 50: Work 1 dc in every dc = 24 dc.
ROUND 51: * 1 dc in next dc, then crochet the next 2 dc tog *, repeat from *-* the rest of the round = 16 dc. Fill the heart with some cotton wool until approx. 1 cm from edge.
ROUND 52: Work 1 dc in every dc = 16 dc.
ROUND 53: Crochet all dc tog 2 by 2 = 8 dc.
ROUND 54: Crochet all dc tog 2 by 2 = 4 dc. Fill some cotton wool through the hole. Cut the thread and pull it through all the sts, fasten the thread.
