Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, so what better pattern to create than a new crochet heart! I was looking at the many hearts there are with the idea of making one that doesn’t exist yet. I didn’t see one made this way. The heart has a centre of foundation single crochets. It finishes with a row of reverse single crochets that form a picot-like edge.

I was working on the heart while staying in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. There wasn’t really a suitable place to shoot a video in the hotel. I decided to try something different, making the video on the street by the sea!

It was warm and sunny that day. I selected a bench by the walk by the sea on the cliffs. I tied my selfie stick to it. You see the result in the video! I added a short bit at the end of the video where I’m showing the place where I was. I also shot a short intro on the beach. It was a bit of change from Finland with plenty of snow at the moment!

I am aware that the video isn’t as sharp as my videos normally are. The sound is clear and the video has subtitles. I decided to make also a crochet chart. Many people say they like to have the pattern in a photo in front of them.

Here’s the yarn I was using for the hearts. It is high quality mercerized cotton.
