It's Heart's Month

I've always liked hearts, that is hand crafted hearts. I've sewn hearts, appliqué hearts, quilted hearts and knitted hearts. Lately I've been crocheting, so I set out to look for crochet hearts both in books and online.

I found a book in my library Get Hooked: Simple Steps to Crochet Cool Stuff by Kim Werker which had a heart pattern.

Using a large crochet hook (size H)and worsted weight Sugar and Cream cotton yarn yielded a coaster size heart. Instead of a card give a heart coaster that will bring joy for years to come to a special friend.
