Here is the crochet heart garland tutorial you guys have been clamoring for ever since I shared the crochet star tute. I love these sweet little mini hearts. I’ve hooked them up in a miniature size here, but you can vary that however you want. Simply follow the same pattern and increase the hook and yarn to blow these hearts up to your match your fancy.
This crochet heart garland is the perfect size to drop in the mail to someone you love, or hang over a cake or party platter or simply to wrap around a package.
I wanted to do the lavender instead of pink or red for a tweak on the traditional Valentine’s fare. I used Valdani hand dyed embroidery thread and a size 1.5 mm crochet hook.
Obviously, you could just make a pile of them and send them like confetti! Or, make two attached by a long chain and attach them to a backpack or key ring.
