I thought I should post at least the start of this project, I’m afraid I won’t have time to finish it and blog before Valentine’s Day… It will be a cute heart crochet craft to share at any time, but since it’s so quick to make, wanted to put the idea out there before February 14th.
This one was made with some leftover sock yarn & a 1.75mm steel crochet hook. This yarn was particularly fine, other sock yarns that I used were too heavy, the heart came out 3″ or bigger. I hope to make a few more with embroidery floss.
Hopefully in the next few days you’ll see this here as jewelry, if not – be inspired! Lots of patterns are really cute in miniature. My initial plan was to make one and wear as a necklace pendant, but since then I’ve thought about:
- making 7 or 8 of these into charms on a bracelet;
- adding beads to the heart;
- adding additional crochet/beaded baubles along the necklace chain;
- done larger in thick wool to make a nice set of drink coasters.
Making any Valentine projects to wear or for your household?
