    I love your heart pattern. It is very simple, uses little yarn, and looks fantastic. I will use them as hang tags on charity hats/blankets that I knit for the premature infants at our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Thanks a bunch for posting it.

    I have a hard time understanding the patterns. Do you have a video making this one? Your work is adorable.

    • Kara @ Petals to Picots February 14, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

      Hi Tara! Unfortunately, I do not have a video for making these. Which part was confusing? I can try to help. You can email me directly at

      • rachel February 14, 2014 at 9:16 pm #

        it says to make a magic ring, and then the video says to refer to pattern which I did but I don’t know how many to chain for the magic ring did I miss something? I guessed and my heart is lopsided, so confused.

        • Kara February 14, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

          Hi Rachel :) After you make the magic ring, ch 1 and then work the foundation round stitches into the ring. If the magic ring is throwing you off, perhaps try to loosely ch 2 and then work the foundation round into the 2nd chain from hook. Hope that helps :)

    Hi Kara, I have used your heart pattern and made a cute little stuffed one :) do visit my latest post to see.

  23. Dawn January 16, 2015 at 4:57 pm #

    These are so cute and so simple, thank you for sharing the pattern! My younger daughter is getting into crochet with me and wants to try these too. I am going to experiment with all sorts of Valentine’s Day colors – it will be fun :) Not sure what we are going to use them for yet, but we will figure that out later.

    • Kara January 18, 2015 at 9:26 pm #

      Hope you both enjoy them!

    Came up with a new way to use your heart pattern: I made some in sport weight sock yarn (red of course!) using an F hook, and sewed them on over the elbow holes in a favorite old black sweater. Elbow patches! (I had to make a couple extra rounds to make them big enough – based on your previous rounds increases) I used the tail of the yarn to sew them on. Pretty cute if I do say so – and my dear old sweater gets to last awhile longer!

    • Kara February 6, 2015 at 10:10 am #

      Oh how cute! What a great idea :)
