Crochet Hearts Pattern

I'm reposting this picture so you can see and print the different edgings if you want to.  Some of these hearts are from a different pattern, but the edging patterns are all listed at the bottom of this post.  The red hearts pictured in yesterday's post were made using this pattern.


By request, here is the little heart pattern.  This is the best-looking heart pattern I have found.  At least the best-looking ones for coasters.  The edgings make all the difference in how they look.  It was a free flyer from Caron that Carol R. sent me from Delaware so I suppose it's okay to post it here.

Little Yarn Hearts

(I used a size G hook and the ones I did in worsted weight acrylic yarn looked the best, in my opinion.)
Chain 3.
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in next ch, turn—2 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, turn—3 sc.
Row 3: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in last sc, turn—5 sc.

  2. What sweet hearts. I like the different borders you have added. I hoped to get a few done before Valentines this year, but it's not looking very promising :P
