What You'll Need
4 mm Crochet Hook
50g DK (Light Worsted Weight)Yarn
4 pipe cleaners 30 cm each approx
The Heart ♥
Foundation row Ch 20, slip to join in the round, ch 1
Rows 1-56 In the same st as your ch 1, 1 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet in each stitch around, slip into your first half double crochet (20)
Get your pipe cleaners and pair them up so now you have 2x60 cm pipe cleaners, twist the ends together. Insert them inside and hold them at each end while you stuff it with filling. Leave the open ends free of filling
Fold your work in half (at around the 28th row), then fold in the opposite direction to create the arches of the heart.Bring the open ends down to the bottom and sew in place. If your pipe cleaners are long you can either cut them off or fold them into the opposite opening.
If you have strong pipe cleaners your heart shape should hold if not you may want to double up or re-shape your heart and sew it in place.
