I tried to get this done for Valentine's Day but it wasn't, um, in the cards. LOL!
So, at least it's in time for the latest Alice in Wonderland movie to be released March 5th. (Please click on the photo to enlarge it).
It's a small afghan and I used four different crochet stitches.
First I did the tunisian crochet, (afghan stitch), for the center guards. (Size J cabled afghan hook.)
Then, I single crocheted all the border hearts using the tapestry stitch. You actually carry over the yarn you aren't using in the design and it's sort of "trapped" within the stitch but still visible making it look sort of like confetti all around the hearts.
Then I did the front post double crochet/back post double crochet alternating between hot pink and white. (Ah! My eyeballs!)
Finally, in red, I did some clustered double crochets in bunches of five right down every other front post crochet.
I'm not sure if these card guards will even be
in the new Alice in Wonderland movie as I understand Alice is returning to the place after having been there years ago as a child. But how else is the Queen of Hearts going to
win her croquet games without their help?
Anyway, I'm sure Johnny Depp will be amazing as usual!!!
