Craftsy: Button Ruffled Hearts

Here is what I did:

  • I chose 2-3 different colors (I used I Love This Yarn in Old Rose and Rosy Cheeks for the heart and Off White for the ruffle).
  • I made 12 hearts total:
    • 2 x small plain heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
    • 2 x small ruffled heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
    • 2 x medium plain heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
    • 2 x medium ruffled heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
    • 2 x large plain heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
    • 2 x large ruffled heart (1 – Old Rose; 1 – Rosy Cheeks)
  • Put them in the order you would like to “string” them.
  • With an alternate color (I used off white), CH 20.
  • Depending on the size of the heart, sl st and chain to attach the back of each heart to the garland
    • Small: sl st to post of DC, CH 1, sl sl to post of DC
    • Medium: *sl st to post of DC, CH 1*, repeat, sl st to post of DC
    • Large: *sl st to post of DC, CH 1*, repeat twice, sl st to post of DC
  • CH 20
  • Fasten off.
