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.

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:

Misschien lees ik er overheen hoor, maar uit hoeveel bollen bestaat dit kussen? Dan weet ik een beetje hoeveel ik kan bestellen.

DROPS Design 09.07.2018 kl. 09:35:

Dag Liesbeth, Je hebt 400 gram nodig, dus 8 bollen (a 50gr). (Staat bovenaan bij materialen)

Monica 15.04.2018 - 22:27:

Is there a tutorial to show how to join the two arches? This is the only part I am confused about.

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 09:54:

Dear Monica, sew together 8 sts from each arch (middle of heart), then crochet 1 sc in each of the remaining sc around each arch (= there were 56 sc on each arch - 8 sc sewn tog = 48 sc remain on each arch, 1 sc in each of the 48 sc on each arch = 96 sc). Happy crocheting!

Shabra 25.02.2017 - 07:08:

This was the only heart pattern i loved on the internet... i made the heart and it came out very well... i need to crochet a bigger one (3 times bigger one ) for my wedding which would be on the 5th of march... i would be grateful if u could just tell me the increment and decrement in each rows thank you in advance

DROPS Design 27.02.2017 kl. 09:15:

Dear Shabra, we are unfortunately not able to adapt each our pattern to every individual request, but you are welcome to request further assistance from your DROPS store. Happy crocheting!

Lacey 12.01.2016 - 20:58:

Should the rounds be connected by a slip stitch when moving to a new round or are they connected using a single crochet?

DROPS Design 13.01.2016 kl. 09:48:

Dear Lacey, place a marker in the first sc on 1st round, at the end of the round, do not join, crochet 1 sc in the 1st st at beg of previous round (= st with marker), then move the marker to this st and continue the round, ie you will work in the round in a continuous spiral, without joining, but moving marker in the first st on every round to mark beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Tijdens het haken van de cirkel krult de cirkel helemaal op, het lijkt nu erg op een mutsje. Wat doe ik fout ?

DROPS Design 16.10.2015 kl. 16:17:

Hoi Melody. Misschien haak je een beetje te strak? Controleer de stekenverhouding en vaak wordt het ook beter als je verder komt.

Darlene 26.01.2014 - 23:37:

I do not understand the instructions for the joining of the two halves of the heart. Which of the halves goes on the top? Or am I completely lost?

DROPS Design 27.01.2014 kl. 09:31:

Dear Darlene, heart is worked from top down, you first crochet both "arches" then put them together and continue in the round with dec until the bottom tip. Happy crocheting!

Stephanie 04.02.2013 - 12:44:

Hoe kan je dit patroon verkleinen? Ik zou een kleinere versie willen maken.

DROPS Design 06.02.2013 kl. 18:23:

Ik kan je helaas niet helpen met aanpassen van het patroon. Maar je zou het eventueel kunnen doen door minder v te haken voor de 2 helften. Maak een proefje en pas aan. Of ga naar de winkel en vraag of ze jou kan helpen.
