  1. Teresa,


    Each year I make ornaments for my children - hearts for my daughter and stars for my son. This year, given my new found craze for crochet, it would be fun to crochet them and you have the instructions!


    How big is this heart?

    I am looking to make a 3-d heart which is about 4 inches top to bottom. I plan to make two hearts and join them together, with batting inside. It would also be nice to add an edging after this. If you have any pointers on these steps before I begin I would really appreciate it!

  2. cynthia,
    It is approximately 5.5". I thought I had a picture of this heart. I am going to get one up there. I just stitch the hearts together like I did with the little heart purse tutorial. It is finished with a simple little edging of chain 3 around the edge.

  3. This heart is exactly what I was looking for, except that I was hoping for something bigger. If I were to just double this in size, would I double every step along the way? I'm new at crocheting and want to make sure I do it right. I'm making a heart pillow for a friend who's husband is deployed to Iraq for Valentine's Day.
