I love this heart. I’ve been looking for “country” patterns and I think this fits the bill.
Thanks for posting.
I love this heart that you created. I am making my youngest daughter a heart afghan. She is expecting her first child due in July and our 12th grandchild. She is expexcting a boy so I am just doing a variety of different colored hearts, and then I will try and put them together to make a blanket. I love your creations thankyou for taking the time to post them and share with your fellow crochet friends. Sincerely Dana Allen, Liberal Kansas/ Member of the Oklahoma Choctaw Nation
i love this heart motif ,it is very cute.
These hearts are adorable. I plan on making one for each of my swimming pals. Thanks!
Thanks for the pattern. It was perfect for what I needed. I made a really cute white crocheted purse for my 6 yr old granddaughter and I needed a red heart for the front, could not find one the right size. I used a size F hook and it was perfect !!!! thank you
I am trying to crochet while on this site. I think this heart is neat. I am having a hard time because I haven’t crocheted in a while and besides that, I just remembered my left index finger was bitten by my cat which I had to have put down, so I hope this trial will work and I can continue to finish this beautiful heart and more stuff. Thanks. God bless us all. Grace
I loves these hearts! What stitches would you use to make a square block around the heart?
Boy, Lee Ann, that’s a really good question. I’ve never trying making them the center of an afghan block or something like that. If you come up with something, post back here to let us all know what you did! 🙂
My daughter wanted a crocheted heart for a blanket she’s sewing for her boyfriend. She is sewing on little odds and ends for special days they are together and this heart is absolutely perfect for it for Valentine’s Day.
[…] little heart for anything complex. I just wanted to make something creative, homey and happy. These American Folk Art Hearts were just the ticket. Its simple and clean enough as an ordinary crochet motif, but I think […]
Hello, thank you, very much for this heart pattern. It was part of my 365 Crochet project, where I am learning about Irish Crochet Lace everyday. Altho it isn’t technically Irish lace, it does have a bit of the characteristics that I’ll think about adding to my Irish Lace motif list.
Awesome! I have been looking for a heart pattern for a project I’ve been working on for the past 2 months.
These hearts are easy and beautiful.
Thank you for the beautiful hearts pattern they are so adorable! Just what I was looking for!
Wouldn’t these be sweet as a throw pillow cover, join 4 hearts (of different colors) at their points, and repeat? Have you thought of fashioning something like that? I’m a beginning crochet-er and can hardly wait to try these. Thanks
[…] shape is exquisite, and while I have not yet had a chance to take hook to yarn and try out the pattern, I was able to contemplate any of a number of uses, including making a series of the heart and then […]
