Fancy Heart

It's been a while since I've posted. I recently got a new job and now I don't have as much time to create patterns as I would like. Actually, it's the time to write them down and test them out that takes up a lot of time. (Don't get me wrong, I love my job but I do miss creating.)

So just in time for Valentine's Day, a fancy lacework heart. I plan on using mine as a coaster but this heart has so many possibilities.
  • Attach a few of them together with a simple chain to make a bunting.
  • Use it as an appliqué and sew it onto a dress or sweater.
  • Crochet two up to round 3, then use round 4 to attach them together to make an envelope for your Valentine's Day card/present/candy.
