Boho Hearts


I've been enjoying making these little hearts.  Anything that is this quick to make is always good fun I find.

I still haven't assembled my mantle dingle dangle yet, but I have a vision in the mind's eye, so we'll see if things pan out according to plan soon.  Tomorrow I think I will have a play and see if it comes together.

In the meantime though, I thought I'd share the pattern with you all so you can start making your own hearts for all the little ideas and projects that you might be seeing with your own mind's eye!

I've decide to call them Boho Hearts, I think mostly because of the colour choices that they seemed to inspire me to make them in, they seen a touch bohemian to me.  I hope you enjoy them and let you creative imaginations run wild...

 

: : BOHO HEARTS PATTERN : :

Written in UK terms, see chart below for USA translations.

You can use any spare yarn with the appropriate hook size.*
(I used Bergere de France Ideal with a 3.5mm hook for the hearts above.)

Round 1: 4ch, ss into 1st chain to make a loop.

Round2:  1ch, [1dc 2ch, 3dtr, 4tr, 1dtr, 3ch, ss into top of last dtr to form picot, 1dtr, 4tr, 3dtr,] all into loop, 2ch, ss into top of 1st dc.

Break yarn and join new colour in first 2ch sp.

Round 3:  1ch, 1dc over 2ch of the round below, [1ch, 1dc into dtr] 3 times, 1ch, 1dc into tr, [1ch, skip 1 st, 1dc into next st] twice, 1ch, [1dc, 2ch, 1dc] into picot loop, 1ch, 1dc into dtr, [1ch, skip 1 st, 1dc into next st] twice, [1ch, 1dc into dtr] 3 times, 1ch, 1dc over 2ch of the round below, 1ch, ss into dc, 1ch, ss into 1st dc of the round.

Break yarn and join new colour in next ch sp.

Round 4:  1ch, 1dc in same sp, *1ch, 1dc in next ch sp*, repeat from * to * 6 times, up to 2ch sp (the heart point), 1ch, [1dc, 2ch, 1dc] into 2ch sp, repeat from * to * 8 times 1ss into ss, 1dc into ch sp, 1ch, ss into 1st dc of the round.

Break yarn and weave in ends


*You may need to increase the number of chains on the first round to 5 or 6 to accommodate the stitches of the second round, if you are using a heavier weight yarn. 





I'd love to see what you get up to, so if you fancy coming along to the Ravelry group, Cherry Heat's Cozy Corner, to share your creations, that would be wonderful!
