Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
First crochet a chain of two
Now crochet single stitch into the second stitch from the hook
Next crochet two single stitches into the on you have now
Remember to do one chain stitch before every row
Crochet two double stitches into each single stitch
Into the first stitch of the next row crochet one double stitch, in the next two stitches crochet two doubles into both of them, then only one double in the next stitch
You should have six stitches now, check. If you don't you did something wrong.
Now it gets a little more complicated.
Crochet one double int the first stitch, then two in the next, for the third do just one, for the fourth and fifth crochet two and in the sixth just one again
Check and make sure you have nine in your row now
The next step is happily simple, crochet one single stitch into each stitch in the row.
Now, your probably wondering, "How is this going to be a heart?"
In this first and final step you will finally see.
Crochet on single stitch first then skip the next stitch and crochet five double stitches into the third one. Skip the next stitch and crochet a slip stitch into the fifth. Skip the sixth and crochet another five double stitches into the seventh finally crochet one last singe into the ninth and I'm sure you know how to tie things off?
Congratulation, you've crocheted a heart!!!
