Decorative crochet hearts



Valentine's day is around the corner so why not make some decorative crochet hearts? Put them on a card, make a bunting, attach them to a bouquet of flowers or just make some because they are fun to make :)



MATERIAL


Yarn: I have used Järbo 8/4 (Mercerized cotton, 4 ply, fingering weight) and Drops Muskat (Mercerized cotton, 8 ply, DK weight) but I'm sure a lot of other types of yarn would work.
Hook: 2,5 mm with Järbo 8/4 and 4 mm with Drops Muskat.
Tapestry needle.
