Vintage Hearts ~ Free crochet pattern in two sizes by Jessie At Home

Vintage Hearts
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

These sweet little hearts remind me of those vintage illustrations. Between the open stitches on the tops, and the stranded colors of the Red Heart Baker’s Cotton, I just find them quite appealing. There are two sizes for you to choose from, or you can make them both! The pattern includes written instructions, step by step photos, and a video of each heart.

Size:
Small heart is about 2 1/4″ across and 2″ tall, large heart is about 2 3/4″ across and 2 1/2″ tall, though the size can easily be changed by using a different size yarn and/or hook

Yarn:
Aunt Lydia’s Baker’s Cotton

Hook:
US 4/E/3.5mm

Gauge:
Not really important

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch
sc ~ single crochet
dc ~ double crochet
tr ~ treble crochet
st(s) ~ stitch(es)

Getting Started:
At the end of each row, the stitch count for the row is in {brackets}. This is to help you check your work, it is not additional instructions.
The single crochet rows do not have a starting chain. You simply make the first sc in the indicated st.
Please note that the photos do not show every step, they are just there to guide along with the written pattern.
