    Im having a little problem with gaps in my heart. Especially where the.. “humps” are connected. Any advice on how to fix/avoid them?

    This is so cute. Thanks so much for posting this up .

  8. Krysia says:

    Thanks for the inspiration. I´ve never crocheted anything but straight lines (like dishcloths). I tried the heart today and was skeptical that it would turn out or that I could follow a pattern like that. It was SO simple and SO cute. I´m inspired to go go go. Now I just have to figure out what to make! I think I´m addicted!

  9. Liz says:

    Hi guys,

    love the finished result, but as a beginning crochet-person: can someone explain the turn? how does that work? I googled it, watched videos, but when I try it with this pattern it turns into a weird jumble.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Liz, when it says turn, you are at the end of the row, so take your work and turn it 180 degrees, so that you can make your next stitches on top of the row you just made.

  10. Yissel says:

    Hi Rachel! I adore your heart, I’m beggining to learn how to make crochet, I like to do this heart, but I don’t know what is means “sc” “tr” “dc”, i try super hard but itis diffucult to me, Can you please help me?


  11. Yissel says:

    Thank you so much Rachel, I’m 8 years old and I’m writing from México, I discovered the crochet and I like it, I find many interesting patterns, you are so talented, you inspired me to make many beautiful things, thank you so much for share all your talent with people with me 😀


  12. KATIE says:

    hezza, about the holes, make sure you go through the front and back loops, that is the only way i avoid holes in this

  13. I am a new crocheter but have tried several heart paaaaaatterns. I think I can do this. I woooooooooooooooooooould like it to be larger but not huge. Whaat size hook should I use?

    Thank you.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Ruth, you can use any hook that gives your the size you desire. Just note that when using a larger hook, such as a J (6.00 mm), your stitches will be looser so you will have a more “holey” heart. You can also try using a thicker yarn for a larger heart.

  14. Crystal says:

    Hi Rachel, Wonderful Pattern. I started making coasters (for cups) as gifts. I made wonderful Turkey’s for Thanksgiving and Santa for Xmas. How would I enlarge your pattern for a coaster where the largest part of the heart is 4 inches in diameter?

  18. Anne Aoki says:

    How would you make this heart pattern larger. I’d like it the size to be used a coffee cup coaster. Maybe 4 inches in diameter. Thanks. (I forgot to check the notify me of follow up comments by email on my first submission.
