Heart Bunting

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

    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)?

      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…??
