Angel Heart



Angel Heart

Materials & Stiches used:

Lion Brand  Cotton Ease Yarn: Red
7” of 1.5”wide lace
Alligator Clip
Crochet Hook Size: F
sc =  single crochet
ss = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet

I started out using this pattern first - Thank you Julie-K
http://www.kundhi.com/blog/2010/01/22/tiny-crochet-heart-pattern/

Then I changed a few things so.....

This is how I make my Hearts:

Form magic circle

9 sc into magic circle

ss into 1st sc to join, Chain 1

skip 1, 5 hdc into next sc

sc into next 2 stitches,

1 hdc into next stitch {Center},

sc in next 2 stitches

5 hdc into next stitch, chain 1

Ss into joining stitch {Center}, fasten off, cut,  leave 2” tail, move tail to back of work

Pull magic circle closed, tie loose ends together trim excess

Finished

Wings
With a dot of hot glue join 7” of lace to form a circle, fold, wrap center and tie with dental floss or thread, this forms a bow which becomes “wings”

Hot glue lace wings to the back of heart

Hot glue small alligator clip to the center and you are done.

Happy Valentines Day
