Heart Motif

Heart

Heart

This is a quick pattern I use often for making decorations for hats and cards.  I have also used it to make hanging decorations which I sell in my shop!

Heart on a hat!

The pattern works for most wool and hook sizes, just match your hook to the label on the yarn.

Start by making a magic ring and chaining 1.

Round 1: 3dc, 1hdc, 2sc,1dc,2sc,hdc, 3 dc into ring. Chain 1 and sl-st into ring, pull to close.

Round 2: ch1, sc into chain space before the first dc of the last round.  2hdc in each of the next 3 sts, 3hdc, (hdc, dc) in next st, (dc, hdc) in next st, 3hdc, 2hdc in next 3 sts, sl-st into chain space, finish with an invisible join into the 1st sc.

Fasten off and weave in the ends (or use the ends to attach the heart to a hat or other work).

  4. I am having trouble copying or download the heart motif pattern. Email me the pattern with the magic ring. So adorable to make!

    • Hi Lisa. Sorry you are having trouble with the magic ring, I have provided a link (above) to a great tutorial for it. The heart pattern is in the text above, not sure what issues you are having with it?

    • Hi Rue! Yes it is. Also known as a magic circle or magic loop. If anyone struggles with this technique see the link above or use a ch4 and sl-st to join instead- your heart will have a hole in the middle if you do it this way.
