Today I Created a Pattern for a Crocheted Heart

Today, I used a little template of a heart I had drawn and created a pattern for a crocheted heart. It took less than an hour to crochet it and document the steps for a pattern as I worked. The crocheted heart uses 3 basic stitches the slip stitch, the single crochet and the double crochet. It also gives an introduction to how to decrease and increase stitches for those learning to crochet. Using a series of "half double crochet stitches" is how you decrease stitch. To increase stitch you simple make extra double crochets in the stitch of the previous row.

Anyway, here is the crocheted heart pattern just in time for Valentine's day!
