St. Valentine Day is coming and it’s so great to make the day special for the ones we love! Today we learn how to crochet a cute puffy heart! It’s so easy and you will need not more than an hour to make it! You can choose any size you like for the heart! So at the end it can be cosy pillow or cute keychain! You can embroider a funny face on it or the name of your second half! You can use the heart to decorate the room for your romantic date! If you hate St. Valentine Day, you can use the heart as a base for your needles 😉
- a crochet hook (any size you like)
- yarn (a bit bigger than it’s recommended for the hook)
- sewing needle and scissors
- ch – chain
- st – stitch
- sl st – slip stitch
- sc – single crochet
- inc – 2 sc in one st (used to increase the number of stitches)
- dec – 2 sc together (used to decrease the number of stitches)
