INSTRUCTIONS:

PART ONE:

With first color;

CH 4; SL ST to form a ring OR make a magic ring;

This part is worked in CONTINUOUS ROUNDS – you will need a Stitch Marker to help you keep track of your rounds.

Note: if you have not worked with a Stitch Marker before – you will place the marker into the LAST SC of each round – removing it to work the last SC and then marking that SC to continue on to the next round.

RND 1: CH 1(this does NOT count as a stitch) – work 6 SC into ring;
FOR THE NEXT 5 ROUNDS – WORK INTO BACK LOOP ONLY;
RND 2: work [2 SC into next SC] 6 times – (12 SC);
RND 3: work [2 SC into next SC; work 1 SC into next SC] 6 times – (18 SC);
RND 4: work [2 SC into next SC; work 1 SC into next 2 SC] 6 times – (24 SC);
RND 5: work [2 SC into next SC; work 1 SC into next 3 SC] 6 times – (30 SC);

 

 

RND 6: work 1 SC into next SC – MARK THIS SC WITH A STITCH MARKER (important!!)
work 1 SC into next ST; work 1 HDC into next ST;
work 1 DC into next ST; work 2 TR into next 4 STS;
work 2 DC into next ST; work 1 HDC into next 2 STS;
work 1 SC into next 2 STS; work 1 HDC into next ST;
work 1 DC into next 2 STS; work [1 TR; CH 3; 1 TR] into next ST – this is your point of your heart!;
work 1 DC into next 2 STS; work 1 HDC into next ST;
work 1 SC into next 2 STS; work 1 HDC into next 2 STS;
work 2 DC into next ST; work 2 TR into next 4 STS;
work 1 DC into next ST;
work 1 HDC into the FIRST SC YOUR WORKED (the one you marked with a Stitch Marker);
SL ST into the NEXT SC – IMPORTANT – REMOVE THE STITCH MARKER AND MARK THIS SC!!
(you will have 41 STS plus the 3 CH space)

RND 7: work 1 SC into NEXT 5 STS; work 2 SC into next 2 TR;
work 1 SC into next 13 STS; work 3 SC into the 3 CH space;
work 1 SC into next 13 STS; work 2 SC into next 2 TR; work 1 SC into next 5 STS.
SL ST into the SC you marked with the Stitch Marker!
Fasten off and weave in ends.

OPTIONAL – Surface Slip Stitching the Center of the Heart!
Note
– you will need to keep your tension loose – otherwise the center will for a very tight bowl – it should form a bowl slightly – however it can flatten when pressed.

The Fronts Loops that were created when working the first 5 rounds in Back Loops are your guide.

  • First create your slip knot on your hook; then remove your hook;
  • Starting at the Center – you will insert your hook from FRONT TO BACK just behind the first loop;

  • Insert your hook into your slip knot;

  • Pull it thru to the front;
  • Insert your hook behind the next loop (FRONT TO BACK);
  • Yarn over; pull thru (BACK TO FRONT);

  • Pull yarn thru the loop on your hook (SL ST created);

These are your REPEAT INSTRUCTIONS to complete the Surface SL ST all around the Center.

  • Insert hook behind the NEXT FRONT LOOP (front to back);
  • Yarn over; pull thru (back to front);
  • Pull thru loop on hook

After LAST SL ST is worked; cut; yarn; pull thru; then pull yarn from Front to Back and weave in tails at the back.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.
