WHAT IS IT?
A cute and twinkly crochet pattern for an adorable string of around 45 glittering love hearts made using our Glitter yarn.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
These lovely hearts make a fun and decorative garland and a great alternative to bunting. String around the house whether it be Valentine's Day, for a child's bedroom, a mantle piece trimming or as a fun alternative to Christmas decorations draped on a tree.
The hearts use so little yarn that you can customise the garland to suit - we have used two colours per heart, but you could play around with colourways, stick with one shade or make longer or shorter chains in between the hearts.
Glitter is a standard 4ply yarn and is available in a wide range of sparkling shades, though the classic red and pink are perfect for the hearts, but opal and platinum would make a lovely vintage combination too, or what about black for some real drama. If you wanted to avoid the bling substitute Glitter with a standard 4ply yarn - perhaps our Good Fortune for matt cotton, Glisten for a lustrous cotton or Barra for a more woollier effect.
The hearts would make a brilliant gift once crocheted up or why not buy the pattern and yarn and create a kit for a crocheter?
Instead of a garland you could always make individual hearts to use as decorations on cards or stitched onto a blanket or garment - lots of possibilities!
