Crochet Hearts

I’m going back to Singapore later this week to visit family and friends. My grandfather passed away last Friday and I hope to bring a little bit of cheer to my grandmother while I’m there. I’ve only a few short days to organise things including gifts. I didn’t think I had enough time to bring handmade gifts but I was wrong!

I whipped these hearts up in a matter of hours. I just love the ease and speed of crochet. I’m giving these crochet hearts to my grandmother. I hope she’ll keep the big one for herself and give the smaller two to her great-granddaughters. Maybe when she misses me, she’ll hold the soft heart and remember that I still love her no matter the distance between us.

Crochet Hearts
Pattern: Corazoncitos amigurumi hearts pattern
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted (American Beauty)
Hook: 4.5mm

I’ve got other ideas for more gifts and I’ll spend the rest of the day working on them. I’ll have another show and tell on Wednesday. Take care till then. :) Have a good Monday!

    they’re adorable and will certainly cheer you your family members who receive them. Hope you enjoy the trip home, in spite of the sad reason.

    I am so sorry Salihan, this is my worst fear, my grandfather lives in Nicaragua, and I dread the day this happens, I am actually going to try to make it there this year, for this reason alone. I don’t know how close you were to your grandfather, but mine to me is my dad, he helped my single mother raise me until we move to Canada so I owe him everything..

    Again I am so sorry, the hearts are a beautiful gesture, your grandmother will love them for sure * hugs*

    Email me about the rocks when you get back ok? those ones are too huge to send to Sydney, we can talk about it later, when things are back to normal in your life. Good luck in your trip

    Sorry to hear about your grandpa. Those hearts are adorable. I have yet to try crochet hearts. I’m afraid of failing miserably, lol

    Wati: She didn’t quite understand how I made them and what they were for but she cuddled them and held them close to her cheek. It was good to see the love in her eyes…

    Robyn: I like the pattern I used to make the hearts. It’s clear and easy to understand. Give it a go for Mother’s Day! ;)
