Keyring Heart

With Valentines day just 10 days away, here's a free one piece heart pattern. Only 4x3cm in size


You will need:
·      Yarn needle 
·      Soft toy filling
·      3mm crochet hook (This pattern can be made with any size yarn and hook. I recommend using a hook 1 size smaller than suggested on the yarn)
·      Pink DK Yarn – Approx. 10m


Stitches and abbreviations used: (US terminology is used)
·      MR - Magic ring (sc unless otherwise specified)
·      Ch - Chain 
·      SC - Single crochet 
·      Inc - Increase stitch (2 single crochets into one stitch)
·      Dec - Decrease stitch (single crochet 2 stitches together)
·      FLO – Front Loop Only 
·      YO – Yarn Over 
·      ST - Stitch                                                    
·      SLST - Slip stitch 
·      R – Round or Row 
·      FO - Finish Off

Other things to note....
·      This pattern is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track.
·      The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round.
·      *  * indicates repeated series of stitches. 
·      Use invisible decreases for a neater finished product. This is done by using the FLO of the stitches while making the decrease. 
·      Stitches in [ ]  are worked into one stitch.
       ·      Remember to stuff the product little and often as you work.
