When I was little I made a billion Heart People out of construction paper. Yes. A billion.
They hung all over the house and my scissors could not move fast enough to keep up with how many hearts I wanted to adhere together.
Sadly my construction paper days are over, but not my days of dabbling in yarn.
And if you can make Heart People out of paper ~ well...why can't you make them out of yarn?
This is Miss Lovey.
And she was made out of hearts, of course.
This is my most favorite pattern for a crochet heart -- ever.
After making 2 of my most favorite crochet hearts, I stuffed it and edged it with single crochet in white.
Button eyes, embroidered floss mouth, 2 tiny hearts for a barrette & heart-shaped hands & shoes for Miss Lovey.
It took me awhile to figure out how to make the arms & legs. With paper, I would accordion-fold strips for the arms & legs. So what to do with crochet?
How 'bout corkscrew arms & legs?
It's been awhile since I have done this stitch but I watched this as a great refresher on how to crochet a spiral/corkscrew.
I think she is lovely.
