After learning to knit, I wanted to learn to crochet to see which I prefer. I'm still undecided - I find crochet is simpler and more portable, but I think there's a lot more you can do with knitting. This heart was my first crochet project - aren't they cute? I made a lot in December and hung them on the Christmas tree, now I am using them as gift wrapping decorations.
All stitches worked into the first chain.
Ch 4. Work 3 tr (triple crochet) into first ch, 3 dc, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 3 dc, 3 tr. Ch 3, sl st into centre and fasten off.

Now have a go at the heart pattern! You are basically creating chains of stitches which all link back to the centre of the heart. The centre is the first chain stitch you do. Hopefully the diagram above makes a little more sense of the pattern. You'll be knocking out hearts no time!
