Valentine’s Spike Stitch Heart Pattern

Spike Stitch Crochet Heart Pattern

It’s time to make all those little Valentines for your sweeties! To get ready, I thought I would jazz up my heart pattern by adding a round of spike stitches. These would make a great accent to a hairband or hat or strung up as a decoration!
