Valentine's Day Garland for decorating your home or classroom.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
- a small amount of worsted weight yarn*
- size I (5.5 mm) Crochet hook
- yarn needle
*Amount will depend on how long you make your garland
Approximately 2.5 inches across each heart Chain 24 and make heart (pattern below) in the 4th ch from hook, repeat for the length you want. End by chaining 20 and fastening off.
Make all stitches in the designated chain. 3 tc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 tc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 tc, chain 2, slip stitch. Fasten off.
- Any size yarn and appropriate hook can be used. With size 10 thread it makes a delicate garland, worsted weight makes a more "county" look.
- When you re crocheting the second half of the heart, you will be crocheting over the chain as well.
