    So cute! How many stitches do you do in the magic ring to start?

      Are you counting the beginning ch 3 as a stitch?

    Hello! If one wanted to increase the pattern and make more rows to make a larger heart, how would this be done?

  6. Candy November 18, 2017 at 5:44 am #

    If I want to make it larger would I just continue following this pattern till I reach size I want?

    • Kara November 18, 2017 at 8:27 pm #

      Essentially yes, but it might take some tweaking around the increases on the upper parts.

    In your instructions, you say to join, to what stitch do I join at the ends of these rounds? Am I the only one who doesn’t know where to join?
