I decided to crochet a simple heart ornie. So I happened upon a free pattern on Teresa Kasner's Blog: Scandinavian Heart Ornament. The pattern was confusing to me. I didn't find the instructions to match the pictures. Although her photos actually helped me more than the pattern instructions. (Teresa, no offense. Maybe it's because I'm new to crochet. As you can tell, it's not expertly crocheted.) So I crocheted this outta Peaches & Creme cotton (to go with the cotton shabby chic bedroom look I have going on) in Peppermint colorway and a US size H crochet hook. I didn't block it or add fabric stiffener because I wanted to go with the relaxed feel of the cotton shabby bedding I have. I see that DROPS also has a similar pattern: Elegant Christmas Heart as well as Addey on Crochetville who posted her pattern in the forum: Heart Motif.
Not only are these great ornies, but make cute doornob hangings and gift box embellishments.
