Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2.
----------------------------------------------------------

HEART:
You first work a square in the round, starting from the middle of the square. Then you work a semi-circle back and forth along one side of the square. Then another semi-circle along the other side of the square, i.e. beside the first semi-circle.

Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm and Safran and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch (= middle of square). Continue in the round according to diagram A.1 - REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 has been completed (do not cut strand) work a semi-circle back and forth according to diagram A.2 along the first side of A.1. When A.2 has been completed, cut and fasten strand.
Then work a semi-circle according to A.2 in the same way along the next side of A.1 - see star in diagram (start from right side). When A.2 has been completed, you have finished in the middle of the 2 semi-circles - do not cut strand!
Now work an edge around the whole heart as follows:
Work 1 double crochet around first chain stitch, * 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain stitch *, work from *-* along the whole semi-circle, then along the side of the square as follows: Work 1 double crochet around corner-space, 2 chain stitches, * 1 double crochet around next chain-space, 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around same chain-space, 2 chain stitches *, work from *-* along both sides of square, then work along the other semi-circle as follows: Work 1 double crochet around first chain stitch, * 2 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain stitch *, repeat from *-* along the whole semi-circle, finish with 30 chain stitches (= loop) and fasten with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round. Cut and fasten strand.

So the heart hangs nicely and is a bit stiff, you can dip it in sugared water or colourless fizzy drink and lay flat to dry.

Klopt het dat de beide halve cirkels ten opzichte van het vierkant een goede/dan wel slechte kant hebben??

Dag Margo,

Nee, omdat je steeds heen en weer haakt, heb je niet een goede en een verkeerde kant.

Peace Out !!! Thanks

Dear Mrs Stout, Our videos do not have sound. We are a worldwide company and our videos are watched by people around the world, speaking different languages, many of whom do not understand English. We have therefore written instructions to accompany this video, and there is no sound to disturb while watching. You can see our video full screen try from this page. Happy crocheting!
