Variation on my Valentine heart Granny

Variation on my Valentine heart Granny 

By AnnooCrochet Designs




I Created this Granny based on the Pattern I created last year ((old pattern here), changed a few things and added some too.
This Granny is larger, 6 by 6 inches when finished,  I might use it to make a new bed cover for my daughter, I could very well see it as part of a handbag or anything else that suits your fancy...;-)
The Cotton yarn I used is washable, but any worsted yarn would do.
Happy Crochet, and Happy Valentine Day to all


You will Need:
Hook 3.50 mm
Berroco Comfort in Orange( 9724)
Berroco Comfort in Red (8730 )
Berroco Comfort in Light Pink ( 9705)
Tapestry Needle

Stitches used:

ch: chain
sc: single crochet
hdc: half double crochet
dc: double crochet
tr: trebble
hdc cluster: make 5hdc, omitting the last step each time, you will have 6 loops on your crochet, yarn over and through all loops, voila.cluster made


Pattern

With First Color Yarn, make a magic circle

 Round 1: ch4 (count as first tr and ch1), [tr] 15times, sl st in 3rd ch from begining of round






Round 2: ch1, in same sp [sc,hdc,dc,tr]



4tr in next st, 


3tr in next st


 2dc in next st


 [hdc, sc] in next st, [sc, hdc] in next st, 2dc in next st  




In the corner: tr in the  center st




For the other side of the heart, repeat in opposite order:  2dc in next st,  [hdc. sc,] [sc hdc], , 2dc in next st, 3tr  4tr ( tr, dc, hdc,sc), sc 





Round 3: With second Color Yarn, sc all around , you remember that to create the pointy part of your heart you had made a trebble stitch in round 2? you want to keep the pointy shape therefore instead of a sc, make a hdc when you reach the point, then continue with your sc. 


Round 4: with third color yarn, in middle st,  ch4, 

tr in next st, 4dc

 4tr in next st, [dc, hdc] in next st


4hdc, 2dc, tr,


3tr in next st, tr, 2dc, 3hdc


2dc, tr, 3tr in next st,

tr, 2dc, 4hdc, [hdc, dc] in next st, 4tr in next st, 4dc
Round 4: With Orange Yarn hdcc all around making sure to hdc 3 times in the same st at each corner


Round 5:With white yarn, sc all around making sure to sc 3 times in the same st at each corner

Round 6: sl st in any corner st, [3sc in same st, hdc cluster in next st, 3sc] all around making sure not to forget to have 3sc in each corner, do not panic if you happen to fall on the cornerwith your cluster, just sc, cluster and sc in corner st ;-)







Round 7: sc all around making sure not to forget to have 3sc in each corner
