Notes about this tutorial
You will need a little bit of yarn or crochet thread and crochet hook.
For this tutorial I used 2,5 mm crochet hook and 4-ply mercerized cotton yarn. Heart applique made of this yarn measures ~ 4 cm (1,6") in width and ~ 3,5 cm (1,4") in height. But You can also try different yarns and threads.
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
tr - triple crochet
ss - slip stitch
So, lets start!
|Step 1 - chain|
(or even better - use "magic loop" - if You are crocheter, You know, what is it. If not - here is great video tutorial:
