These are made using the same pattern as my Heart Bunting, but with a 1.5mm hook and 3ply crochet cotton, so they are small and cute plus they work up quickly – probably about 20mins.
Heart Hair Ties
These are made with two hearts joined together- the first is attached to a hair tie – here’s how:
1. Make a magic circle and chain 3 then crochet 9 double crochets into the circle. Pull your circle tight and secure the round with a slip stitch between your first and last dc.
2. Round 2: Double crochet 5 times into the first stitch, and once into the next stitch. In the next stitch double crochet and catch your hair tie behind the stitch to hold it in place: When the stitch is finished the tie’s secured in place by the stitch.
3. Double crochet into the next stitch then double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet into the next stitch. Double crochet into the next stitch, and when you double crochet into the following stitch catch you hair tie behind on the opposite side. Double crochet once into the next stitch, 5 double crochets into the next stitch. You should have one stitch left from the previous round- pop a slip stitch into it.
4. Round 3: 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.
Make another heart (not attaching it to the hair tie), then holding your two hearts together (with the hair tie running in between the two) and right sides facing out, slip stitch around the outside – joining the two hearts together:
Sending lots of love your way! Janette xx
