Crochet heart bunting.

I took a break from my Mood blanket this week to work on something a bit whimsical, I was most certainly under the influence of all the valentines projects appearing on Pinterest, when I started the crochet heart bunting. I even started a love hearts board :)


I worked all the hearts up using Bendigo woollen mills 8 ply cotton with a 3.75 clover amour hook. They work up so quickly and are quite addictive to make, I was enjoying watching my little pile of rainbow coloured hearts grow. I used the love hearts pattern from planet June in the medium size. To join I used a 4.00 hook and Lily Sugar and creme variegated cotton. I chained 20 then used a single crochet though the 4th stitch from the centre (on either left or right with no rhyme or reason) if you want to use this method I inserted the hook through the back of my work when doing the single crochet, then Ch 20 and join another heart in the same manner. Finish with 20 ch after you have attached the last heart. You could increase or decrease the Chain length to make your hearts closer together or further apart. For a more uniform look always attach each heart from the left or all from the right so they will hang dipping in the same direction instead of in the haphazard lopsided fashion mine do.


Have fun working up these sweet hearts and here's wishing a Happy Valentines Day to all of my sweet readers :)

  3. Tammy, would you believe I have been looking for a heart pattern as I saw similar bunting somewhere this week and thought I'd give it a try! I just do basic crochet and thought I'd be able to cope with a heart. I was thinking of sewing them onto ribbon. Yours looks great.

    1. I love it when that happens! this pattern uses sl st, single, dbl and tbl as well as hdc stitches. I'm not sure what your skill level is, there is also a nice tutorial for simpler pattern with step by step photos on this blog. nothttp://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/how-to-crochet-a-heart

    2. Thanks Tammy , I will check that pattern out too. I made a few granny square rugs in the seventies but hadn't crocheted for many years but have a renewed interest in it now.
