The heart is worked in the round from the middle outwards.
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Cotton Merino and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue to work according to A.1. Cut and fasten strand when A.1 is finished.
To make the heart a bit stiff –dip it in sugared water or colorless fizzy drink and lay it flat to dry.
