Wool on Sundays – 97 (Heart February)

Welcome to another Wool on Sundays and thank you for all the suggestions last week about what to do with that very felted jumper.

I think, given that it is SO thick, I will try Benta’s suggestion of making some slippers but in the meantime it has become a photo backdrop for some little hearts I made this week.

 

There seem to be a lot of crochet heart patterns on pinterest but I never seem to get a nice even shape from them so, with a lot of trial and error, I have settled for doing the following (UK terminology):
Make a magic loop, dc 9 and join the round then work the following in these 9 dcs
1- chain 2
2 – 1 dc, 1tr, 1chain (point of heart)
3 – 1 tr, 1dc
4 – htr
5 – htr
6 – 5tr, 1htr
7 – slip stitch
8 – 1htr, 5tr
9 – 1htr
Join round and sew in ends.

 

I will try to draw a diagram and edit to add it to this post…

 

I hope you have a lovely week :)

And, as usual, of course, I’d love you to link up. The rules are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy week :)

    How pretty your hearts look hanging on the branches, in the jug. Gorgeous vignette. Thank you for the pattern…..I will file it away for such time when I can master the art of crocheting.
