Sweet Yarny Valentines...

I had fun crocheting some colorful hearts from this Granny Sweet Heart pattern and I hosted a CAL on Ravelry this past week with this pattern.  The pattern is very well written and these hearts are so simple to make - with just scraps of yarn, really.

The large one was made with Lily's Sugar 'n Cream yarn and a size J hook.  I also went around two or three extra times to increase the size.  What I came up with is a good size for a dishcloth (8" across and tall) - or a pot holder, or just a "pretty" to decorate a hall table.

The smaller hearts (about 5" x 5") are made with Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton Yarn and a size G hook.   The exception to ILTC yarn are the beige and green yarns in the second heart below.  Those colors are Baby Bee Hushabye yarn. 



These are so easy to make, and I keep thinking of new color combinations and find myself wanting to make more.  I finally had to pull myself away, because really...others things call too.  So consider yourself warned and don't blame me if you try these and get lost in a heart-making time warp.   :^)


Check out what other Yoppers are up to this week in our Year of Projects thread on Ravelry.

  2. Love the hearts...................I may have to give them a try. I really like quick items to fill in times when those long projects start to weigh on a person.

    1. Yes! I'm in the middle now of two large blankets. Sweet, little, colorful hearts were perfect to break up the larger projects.

  3. I just love to see little projects that celebrate various holidays! I don't dare do Valentine's Day stuff around here though - Gavin says that "February 15th is our Valentine's Day" ... when chocolate is on for half price, LOL!

    1. We tend to take little notice of Valentine's day here, too (until the chocolate goes on sale the next day). This year, though I wanted to shake things up a bit. lol

    1. Well, they're easy-peasy. My guess is you won't be able to make just one. ;^)
