Heart coaster or embelishment


Recommended Posts

OK. I originally posted this on the Misc Show and Tell thread, but everyone asked me for the pattern. I posted it there and Shell suggested I post it over here as well.




I originally made it in Caron SS as something to include in my Gram's care package I sent out. As is, it would make a great embelishment or decoraction on clothes, bags etc or just a little pretty to hang on her granny-mobile (walker with wheels). I also thought that if you made it in cotton it would make a great coaster or even a little scrubbie for the dishes.


I made it up mostly. I started with a standard granny and then made the 'lobes'. I got the idea from a bookmark pattern, but wanted a granny in the middle.

Ok, here goes the 'official' directions:

G hook, ww yarn.

ch 3, join into a circle

round 1:Ch 2, 3 DC, ch 2, (3dc, ch 2) 3 times, join with sl st to ch2. ch 2 and turn

round 2: (2dc, ch2, 3dc in ch2 corner) ch 1, *(3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1) in remaining 3 corners, join with sl st. ch 4, turn.

Round 3: 11 tr in ch 1 sp, sl st into ch2 corner, sl st in next 2 st and ch1 sp, ch 4, 11 tr in ch 1 sp (both 'lobes' made), sl into ch 2 corner,ch 1, sc around, 2 sc in point, continuing around both lobes, sl in the middle of the two tr clusters to create dip between lobes, join with sl in 1st sc

round 4: rsc in each sc around, join and fasten off.


I hope this makes sense, round 3 is almost round 3.5 because you go around 1.5 times. I found i needed the row of rsc to keep the lobes of the heart flat. I also needed to do tr for the lobes so they'd be long enough to reach from the middle to the corner. If you have any questions or problems, let me know. I'd love to see your results.

You're welcome everyone. I thought about making up a couple of dozen in pink, purple and white and stringing them together into a scarf. Or maybe put four together with the points in and create a heart flower. I really think it reminds me of some of the quilt squares I've seen. I'd love to see what everyone does with this.

Very lovely

looks hard to me :S

but I love it >.< I will try it

Thank you so much


That's the beauty of this pattern. It looks hard, but it's all simple stitches and starts with a simple granny. Please let me know if you have any trouble or if you have any questions. I'm no expert in pattern writing.....
