Crocheted Heart Ornament

I used a coarse, almost sisle yarn for this, as it gave it a wonderful country feel. You can use any yarn you like. To make it fast, I suggest two strands and a size "N" hook.

Chain 2, make a single crochet in the second chain. Chain 1 and turn, making the next single crochet in the same stitch, then another in the next stitch.

Continue with increasing one stitch per row till your triangle size is reached. It is very important to stop at a row with an even count. In other words, 10, 14, 18, etc. You will need an even amount on each side to make the tops of the hearts, but each top will need an uneven count so there is a middle stitch.

When you reach the size you want, you will be at the end of the row you just finished. (stop at about 3 inches and you will have a nice size for an ornament. If you keep going, you could make a pillow), it's all up to you!!

When the size of triangle you want is reached, chain 1 and turn, making a double crochet in the "middle" stitch of that half. So, if your triangle's last row had 10, you will make your first double crochet in the 3rd stitch, making 3 or 4 more in that same stitch, then slip stitching in the 5th stitch of the first half. That is half of your hearts top. Do the same with the last 5 stitches, cut and secure yarn. (If your triangle had 14 on the last row, it would be 7 on each side, and the center stitch would be number 4...with 18 it would be 9 on each side and the center stitch would be 5, etc).

I used ripped fabric about 4 inches long and tied it between where the heart tops meet. The blue "button" you see is actually a wooden heart I painted and put two dots of black paint for the holes. You can decorate yours with anything from ribbon to raffia, classy to country.

It's crocheted, so you don't need a hanger on the back, but you can make one if you want it to hang lower from the tree branch.

Enjoy!
