Teeny Tiny Crochet Heart Bunting

 

The Teeny Tiny Heart Bunting is finished! And it’s now hanging in my Little Daughter’s bedroom, much to her delight!

As there was a bit of interest in this bunting from some of you, I thought I would attempt a step by step pattern for you to follow. I hope I’ve done it as simple as possible for you. Each heart doesn’t take that long to do either, so its one of those smashing projects that you could probably complete in less than an afternoon.

 

I used Rowan Hand Knit Cotton DK for my hearts, and a 4mm hook, but feel free to use any other wool/hook size that you might prefer. I like Hand Knit Cotton as it tends to be a bit stiffer than some other wools, and holds its shape well (the colours in this range are also very bright and scrumptious!)

 

OK, lets begin! You’re going to need to know how to do a slip stitch (SS), a chain (Ch), a single crochet (SC), a double crochet (DC) and a treble crochet (TR) (*Ive added a little ‘How To’ for the TR for those of you who aren’t sure)

 

The Pattern

 


 

Round 1: Make 4 Chain stitches and join into first chain with a SS.

 

Next, SC 10 times into the middle of the ring as shown below:

Join with a SS into the top of the first SC stitch to finish the round.

Make sure you have 10 stitches to work into for the next round:

Round 2: Next, you are going to do 5 DC into the first stitch, this is going to be the first top curve of your heart and it will look something like this:

In the following 3 stitches, you need to do 1 DC into each.

 

This is followed by a TR, the bit that will form the pointy part of the heart. For those of you not sure how to do a Treble Crochet, here is a little explanation:

 

Wrap your yarn around your hook twice and push your hook under the stitch.

 

Wrap your yarn around your hook and pull back through (4 loops on the hook).

 

Wrap your yarn around your hook and pull through 2 loops (3 loops left on hook)

 

Wrap your yarn around your hook again and pull through the remaining 3 loops ~ Voila!! A Treble Crochet Stitch!! 😀

 

By now, your heart should be looking a bit like this:

Into the next 3 stitches, you need to do 1 DC into each.

 

Then work 5 DC together into the following stitch. This makes the second curvy top of the heart.

 

You will see a stitch space (as shown below, where I’m pointing the tip of the hook)…you need to do a SS into this to finish off the heart before securing with a knot.

Round 3: Join your second colour by knotting your new yarn onto the first colour neatly.

 

Start by making 1 CH into the last SS of the previous round.

To continue with your edging, do 1 Sc into the next stitch.

 

The next 3 stitches all need 2 SC into EACH stitch.

 

Into the next 4 stitches make 1 SC into each.

Then do 3 SC into the following stitch which is the tip of the heart, the 3 SC’s will help to make it more pointy shaped.

Working up the opposite side, its a case of reversing the stitch pattern that we’ve just done. So after doing the 3 SC into the tip of the heart, we need to do do 1SC into the next 4 stitches.

 

Then do 2SC into each of the next 3 stitches.

 

Into the next to last stitch, do 1 SC.

 

The last stitch just requires a little SS to finish, and a wee knot to secure.

 

Be sure to weave in any loose ends at the back!

 

Here is a brief run down of the stitches for you:

 

Round 1:

 

Ch 4,

Round 3:

1 SC into next stitch

 

2 SC into each of the next 3 stitches

 

1 SC into next 4 stitches

 

3SC into bottom point of heart stitch

 

1 SC into next 4 stitches

 

2 SC into each of the next 3 stitches

 

1 SC into next stitch.

 

Finish by SS into next stitch and secure with a knot.

 

Making your hearts into Bunting

 

This is really quite easy, and of course the exciting bit that turns all your colourful hearts into actual bunting. All you need to do is know how to chain stitch and slip stitch, and Im guessing if you have got this far with me, then yes, of course you can!! 😀

 

I started my chain off with 15 CH stitches, this is the part you can use to tie or attach your bunting to something with.

 

Find the topmost stitch on your heart, and simply SS into it. You might find it a little bit fiddly at first, but you’ll soon get the hang of joining the heart to the hanging chain.

 

Here’s what it looks like:

Next, CH 4 across and work a SS into the next topmost stitch of the opposite heart top.

I then went on to crochet 7 CH stitches between each heart, but of course you could do more or less depending on the look you want for your bunting.

 

And here it is, all finished!

I hope you enjoyed the pattern, and found it straightforward enough. I’ve spent a while tweaking it, and re-writing bits so I hope I’ve explained it clearly for you – if there are any parts you aren’t sure on though, please let me know and I’ll do my best to help!

 

Oh, before I go, a good tip is to spray the backs of the hearts with a little spray starch and then iron gently – I found it helps the hearts to hold their shape even better and you can tweak them into shape if they’re looking a bit too rounded on the bottom.
