Crochet heart pattern for beginners:
Make a magic ring. Using 4.5 mm hook ch 3. Work into magic ring: 4 tr, 4 dc, ch1, tr, ch1, 4 dc, 4 tr, ch 3, sl st into magic ring. Pull the yarn tail to close the magic ring.
Change the hook to the smaller size. I am using 3.5 mm. Start making sl st in each st across the heart to make heart’s edges more rigid. To preserve the shape of the heart make ch1 when you reach the bottom’s center.
Weave in ends.
