    I have come across many heart designs after 2 years of crocheting, but this is probably the prettiest! (Is that a word-?)
    (P.S.) I am not Squirrely Girly from etsy.com. I am someone different!)

  9. Jennifer says:

    I made one that was pink with a red border. It is pretty, but somehow it was not symmetrical. Maybe next time I will get it right. I’m very new to crocheting so I am never surprised by the outcome of my work, even when it turns out beautiful! :)

    I wonder if this can be done in WW cotton? I’m thinking a really cute dishcloth.

    • Rachel says:

      Mamie, sure you can! The yarn used in the pattern is a bit thinner, so your heart will end up a bit bigger than what’s indicated in the pattern if that’s okay with you.

  13. elisa says:

    That is so beautifully done, thanks for sharing

    Hello
    “Round 3: … join with sl st in top of beginning ch-3: 69 dc , 2 hdc”
    –> Am I meant to connect the round with the slip stitch and then do 2 half-double crochets in the next two stitches?
    Thanks

  17. Laura says:

    Hello,

    Out of all the heart patterns I’ve seen, I really like this one and would like to make a baby blanket for my newest granddaughter. Do you have instructions on how to make this into a heart-shaped baby blanket? I would really appreciate the information.

    Thanks
