Handmade / A little heart to heart


In keeping with Valentine’s Day I’ve been struck by the number of hearts featuring recently in my knitting and crochet…

Yesterday at the weekly Chain Gang meeting we held a Valentine’s Day swap. My original thought was to make a simple crochet heart, but when I spied The Dapper Toad’s pattern for a Cupid’s arrow, I was all of a quiver (please pardon the pun!).


I pulled a gorgeous knitted peony corsage by Val from the swap bag, and left the meet with a bag sewn by Jenny, the fabrics are fabulous!

Other hearts have included Twit Knit scarf swap pieces, a crochet keyring and test heart granny squares. Loving creating such heart-felt things!

What kind of shapes do you find yourself leaning towards?
