Who says hearts are just for Valentine’s day? I had a lot of fun designing this heart… which I used upside down as the bunny face for my Easter Bunny Wall Hanging. When you need a little love, this crochet heart pattern is just the thing.
This heart is worked with worsted weight acrylic yarn and measures 4 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall when complete. If you want a smaller, not so chubby heart, you can stop after round 2. Working the first row in a magic ring sets our heart up nicely.
