Heart Bunting

Posted on

Crochet Heart BuntingSuper cute heart bunting, just what every home needs!

Crochet Heart BuntingI searched around the internet for a heart shape I liked, round and perfect and hearty enough. Alas I couldnt find one… so I made one up instead.

These hearts are made with 8ply cotton and a 4mm hook.

1. Make a magic circle and crochet 10 double crochets into the circle. Pull your circle tight and secure the round with a slip stitch between your first and last dc.

Crochet Heart Bunting2. Double crochet 5 times into the first stitch, and once into each of the next three stitches. Double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet into the next stitch: Voila half a heart…

Crochet Heart BuntingDouble crochet once into each of the next three stitches, 5 double crochets into the next stitch. You should have one stitch left from the previous round- pop a slip stitch into it.

So this round goes:

5dc into first stitch, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc-1tr-1dc into next stitch, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 5dc into next stitch, ss into last stitch, when you are done it should look like this:

Crochet Heart BuntingJoin your next colour into the ss and chain 1. Single crochet into next stitch, 2sc into each of next 3 stitches, sc into next 5 stitches, sc, double crochet, sc into next stitch (bottom of the heart), sc into next 5 stitches, 2sc into each of next 3 stitches, single crochet into last stitch. Slip stitch to finish the round, turn over and tie your ends together- this helps the heart form.

Crochet Heart BuntingRepeat as many times as you desire…

Crochet Heart BuntingCute aren’t they?? We had lots of fun playing with them just as hearts, in fact a few never made it onto the bunting. I also intend making some and sewing them onto some of Maia’s clothes as embellishment (or maybe to hide a small mark or tear?)… endless hearty possibilities!

Crochet Heart BuntingIf  your hearts don’t sit as flat as you would like give them a gentle iron on the reverse side (use a hanky or tea towel between your heart and the iron)

To make the bunting; chain 20 attach chain to your first heart using a ss, chain 6 attach with ss to the other side of your heart. I chained 10 between my hearts, but you can have them as far apart or as close as you like. Here’s a shot of the back so you can see where to join them to your chain.

Heart BuntingHang and enjoy…

Heart BuntingDon’t worry they aren’t living on the fence, but they did look nice. Especially in the late afternoon sun…

Heart Bunting Hope you are having a great week! Janette xx

    Too cute!! I love wee heart bunting. I started making some of these ages ago and then got sidetracked – I might have to bring them out again after seeing yours. ♥

    How many chains do you start with when making the circle??

      Janette responded:
      November 20, 2011 at 5:42 pm

      I use a magic circle to start- this is what gives it a nice tight centre. You can see how to do it here. Hope that helps! Janette

    You don’t say how many chains you in each section? i.e. after you do the magic circle how many chains (I’m taking its three to make one of the 10 dc)?

      Janette responded:
      January 20, 2012 at 8:15 am

      Hi, you just chain 3 to start the first round (so it will be chain 3 and 9 dc to make 10 dc), the rest of the rounds are made as it says. Thanks for your help I’ll adjust the pattern to say this. J :)

    If I wanted to make larger hearts, would you suggest more DC in the magic circle? I’m thinking drink cozies for desks at work…??

    […] I am pleased to say that they were enjoyed by his colleagues and were all gone by lunchtime Over the last week or so to be honest I’ve been too hot to craft- this weather is driving me slightly mad now I must admit! We live in a top floor flat and while it was lovely and warm in the winter… it is now hot and oppressive in the summer! We do have the windows open but unfortunately the road that runs past the flat is rather noisy so it’s a choice between the noise or the heat! Sigh! Anyway, I have managed to get my crochet hook out and I made this row of heart bunting (pattern from here): […]
