Little Anatomical Heart: Crochet Pattern


Little Anatomical Heart: Crochet Pattern, is a quick project to make in a day.



This pattern will be part of the 31-day Crochet Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by Stardust Gold Crochet.

This Blog Hop is also in support of the Knitting Challenge for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital; we are not knitting, we are crocheting however we are still doing a yarn craft and supporting St. Jude is a worthy cause, so I guess we can let the name go and do our own thing while still supporting them.

Each day in March, there will be a featured pattern that will be FREE for the day with the provided coupon code. you can find all the coupon codes here with the code button.

If you miss a day or don't want to do all the Hopping, you can still get all the wonderful patterns of Crochet in a Day; here with the affiliate link in the Bundle Button. The bundle will be available for just $17.

If you would like to donate to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, here is a link to do so.

This is also a place you can post any and all photos of your makes from this 31 day crochet challenge.

I will attempt to make all 31 items of this blog hop this month, hope you will join me!


This little anatomical heart is one of two patterns I will have featured in the 31-day crochet challenge blog hop. In this post you can find the written pattern and tutorial video. I have a pdf pattern on Ravelry that has the written instructions and photos. I also have this pattern with photos on Ribblr. Both buttons below will take you to the pattern on the indicated sites. There is a button at the bottom of this post that will take you to the pattern you can use the coupon code provided to get the pdf pattern for free on its featured day.









For This Litttle Heart you will need a few supplies, and can be helpful to know a few abbreviations.

Supplies:

Yarn: Four to Five colors of worsted/Standard 4 weight

I used:

¹ Red Heart: Real Red

² Red Heart: Blue

Crochet Hook:

H (5.00 mm) Hook

G (4.00mm) Hook

Other Supplies:

Scissors, Tapestry needle, Stitch markers, Poly-fil (stuffing)

Google eyes (two of them between 5mm & 15mm),

hot glue (and a glue gun)



Notes:

-It can be beneficial to look through the entire pattern before starting.

-The pattern is written in standard US terminology and written working right-handed

-Rnds are working continuous unless other wise noted

- 2sc = increase stitch, if inc is easier for you to follow than 2sc you can make notes throughout the pattern before starting.
