With Valentines day just 10 days away, here's a free one piece heart pattern. Only 4x3cm in size


You will need:
·      Yarn needle 
·      Soft toy filling
·      3mm crochet hook (This pattern can be made with any size yarn and hook. I recommend using a hook 1 size smaller than suggested on the yarn)

Stitches and abbreviations used: (US terminology is used)
·      MR - Magic ring (sc unless otherwise specified)
·      Ch - Chain 
·      SC - Single crochet

·      Dec - Decrease stitch (single crochet 2 stitches together)
·      FLO – Front Loop Only 
·      YO – Yarn Over 
·      ST - Stitch                                                    
·      SLST - Slip stitch 
·      R – Round or Row 
·      FO - Finish Off

Other things to note....
