Tutorial: crochet heart pins


These crochet hearts are simple and fast to stitch up and they are the perfect stash buster! I sat down one evening in front of the TV and made 20 or so hearts in no time.

Here's the pattern:


You can use any size crochet hook. I used a G hook on my hearts. 

You work almost all of the crochet stitches in the first chain. The chain gets looser the more you add to it; just pull it tight to close it when you're done. 

You can make them into cute little lapel pins: 


Or make cute hair pins:



{my glue job is so messy in that photo! oh well! hah. you can buy bobby pin blanks at most craft stores or online at places like Rings and Things.}



Make a rainbow of hearts!

I am thinking about making up a bunch of hair pins for all the girls in my kids' class and lapel pins for all the boys for Valentine's Day! Wouldn't that be cute?!
