    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

  18. Kerry says:

    Hello…I was wondering if someone could help me understand a part of one of your beautiful patterns. It’s the 1 called Sweetheart Valentine Heart (I’ve listed the link above). My confusion is in Round 1, right after it says dc in the next 5 ch, it says to dc5tog {I understand how to do the dc5tog stitch} however there are only ch sts there, not any in DC sts there to be able to do that. Could someone please explain to me what I’m doing wrong or missing?
    Please help me…Thank You and Please have a blessed day…Kerry

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Kerry!
      You can make the dc5tog into the chain stitches, you will use the next 5 chains that are there. It is no different than making it into any other stitch, such as double crochet stitches. You will insert your hook into the chains to make your dc5tog. Let me know if you need more help with it!
