Did you know the heart symbol goes back to the 13th century? It is one of the most widely recognizable symbols across the entire globe and I bet you see it at least once a day wherever you may go.
I love to crochet hearts. There are many different ways you can do it and each way has a unique style of its own.
In the current February issue of Crochet World (available here) there are 3 designs of mine that feature hearts.
The Love to Read Bookmark has a lacy heart that works up quickly – the perfect Valentine token for any book lover.
The Floating Heart Pendant uses simple crochet stitches as a frame for a pretty silver heart-shaped charm.
The Love You Teddy is snuggly and huggable with his Granny Square-style heart and paws.
There is still time to make one of these or all three for those you love in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
