Okay, now you have that Beatles tune running thru your head. Right?
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am keeping with my tradition of offering a heart pattern as a Valentine to my readers.
In 2010 it was my Little Heart.
In 2011 it was my Spiral in a Heart.
So for 2012 I offer the Simple Sweetheart pattern. This fun little heart takes just a bit of yarn and a few minutes to stitch up.

Start with an Adjustable Slip Knot (this is a slip knot that is tightened by pulling on the beginning tail instead of the working yarn).
Round 1: Chain 2, 7 sc in 2nd chain from hook, sl st to first sc of round.
Round 2: Skip 1 st, 5 dc in next st, dc next st, dc next st, ch 1 and sl st in top of previous dc, dc in same st, dc in next st, 5 dc in next st, sk 1 st, sl st in first st (or use a needle join into sl st). Fasten off.
Your little Sweetheart can now be used to decorate a card, or become a pin or magnet. I used the tails of mine to sew pin-backs on them to make brooches.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
