I saw some of these on Pinterest yesterday, but the pattern was in a magazine. I wanted to do the project now, so I looked at the picture really closely and figured out the pattern for myself! I love the finished product and I've already had several friends ask for some for Valentine's Day. Guess I better get to work!

It's really easy.

I'm not a pattern writer, so I'll just give a brief overview.

Magic Loop
Row 1:ch2, 20 tc into ML
ss into ML
Row 2: ch 6
*tc into tc, ch2* all the way until the last tc on the previous row.
Rather than ch2 after the last tc, ch 6 and ss into ML
Row3: ch 7, turn
*sc into tc, ch 3* all the way around the heart to the last tc.
After last sc into tc, ch 7,
ss into ML
tie off and weave ends, making sure the ML is well tightened before finishing off.

note: I've found that the chains at the top of the heart need to be adjusted 1 less or one more sometimes, based on what yarn and hook is used.

Well, I guess in the end I did end up writing out the pattern rather than an overview. Let me know if you find any mistakes I made. I wrote this out from memory.
Balancing act

I love this pattern. It would look so cute in reds and pinks
