Heart Appliqués

Here are some quick and easy hearts, just in time to whip up some homemade valentines decorations.
I’ve written up three sizes to make. Use them for whatever you’d like, the possibilities are endless! 😄

There is no set hook or yarn size, play around with them and see what you get. I used worsted weight yarn as well as a G- hook and F- hook.
All the hearts start with a magic ring, there is a tutorial in a previous post if you need it.

Start by making a magic ring:

1. 3 tr, 4 dc, tr, 4 dc, 3 tr : into the magic ring
2. pull the ring closed, ch 2 and slp st into hole.
Make sure you’ve pulled your magic ring tight or you will have a hole in the center.

**if making a medium or large heart, do not fasten off, continue below.
Otherwise, fasten off and weave in ends.
