Granny Sweet Heart Pattern

February is almost here.  So I've been working on a crocheted heart that can be used for coasters or attached on a tie for cute wall buntings.  After several starts and restarts, I finally came up with a design that I liked.  There are several similar heart designs based on granny squares, but nothing that was working out for me.  I wanted something with several colors, but yet something that still looked like a heart and would be good for a nursery.  I also wanted something that would work with different weight yarns.  This is what I came up with, my Granny Sweet Heart.

I've written up the pattern to share with you.  For the hearts pictured, I used sport weight cotton.  The hearts measure (unblocked) about 5-1/2" at the widest point and 6" in length. 

To make them into buntings, crochet a chain and attach the hearts with double crochets into one or two of the border loops, while evenly spacing the hearts along the chain as you crocheted it.  I plan to use some of my hearts for coasters.  I also plan to do some with worsted cotton for dish cloths.  Don't you agree that they'd make super gifts.  Who doesn't need a little fun and color in the kitchen?  

Here's the pattern.  I hope you enjoy making these colorful hearts as much as I do.  Please let me know if you find any errors so that I may correct them.

Have a wonderful day!
