This unique design creates 4 different sizes of heart ornaments, decorations, or appliques, simply by ending at any of the 4 noted rounds. You may fasten off and change color at the end of every round if desired. Last page of pattern includes photos after every rnd.

Leave thread versions soft to use as a coaster or applique, or starch to use as a hanging ornament or window decoration. There are instructions on my website for my favorite starching method.

Make in worsted weight cotton yarn for a special face wash cloth, or whip stitch 2 together around the edges or work last round through both layers for a pretty hot pad.

Fasten a special bead or button in the very center to create a special Valentine’s Day decoration or to show love to someone any time of year!
