Be My Valentine Heart Garland – Free Crochet Pattern

Today is Valentine’s day and what is more appropriate than a free heart garland pattern with a full video tutorial? I use two yarns for this pattern to show you how two yarns can meet up and fall in love. The love affair between Scheepjes Cotton 8 & Scheepjes Lizzy has resulted in a cute heart garland perfect for decorating your home or to add extra allure to a gift for someone special. This garland works up fast and should be all done in time for dinner.

Joining the heart to form a garland

When you have competed 15 heart you can join them to form a garland. With both strands of Cotton 8 and Lizzy on a 3.5mm crochet hook make a sl.st. in the center dip of a Cotton 8 heart. ch30 and connect a Lizzy heart with a sl.st. Again ch30 and then connect a Cotton 8 heart. Continue connecting a heart every ch30 with a slip stitch untill all hearts are joined. Work away your yarn tails

Hechten van de hartjes om een slinger te vormen

Wanneer je 15 hartjes hebt gemaakt kun je ze aan elkaar hecthen om een slinger te vormen. Met een Cotton 8 draad en een Lizzy draad en met een 3.5mm haaknaald maak je 1hv in het dipje van een Cotton 8 hartje. Haak nu 30l en hecht het volgende Lizzy hartje vast door 1hv in dezelfde positie. Ga zo door telkens 30l tussen de hartjes en haak de Cotton 8 en Lizzy hartjes om en om. Als je klaar bent werk je nog even je draadjes weg.

Finishing off

Take the time to block each heart (you can do this with them connected), give them a moment to dry and then the end result is really cute.

Afwerking

Neem nog even de tijd om je hartjes op te spannen, geeft niets dat ze al aan elkaar verbonden zijn. Even laten drogen en het eindresultaat is echt leuk.
