Last week I saw a pattern for a crochet heart garland, and I immediately wanted to make one. It would be an adorable Valentine's Day decoration and I knew Emma would like to have it up as a birthday decoration as well. Even though I have been slowly working on my granny square afghan, I apparently still don't really know how to crochet because it took me forever to get this pattern figured out. I looked through the comments several times, thinking that some people would have written about mistakes in the pattern and how they didn't really end up with a heart when they tried it. But, nope, apparently it was just me.Finally, after spending two days' worth of nap time trying to figure it out, I got it. And duh, it really was actually very simple. Also very cute, don't you think?

I would like to point out that my coaching probably helped you figure it out, as well ("Just figure it out and quit wasting time!"). Being a crochet guru is just one of my hobbies.

That is darling! And it is extra-special since Valentine's Day is Emma's birthday!

That is adorable. I wish I had done more decorations for Valentine's Day.

That is too adorable! You are way better than me as I can't even read a pattern. LOL.

That is a very sweet decoration. Now, how to go about adding sprinkles...?

Soo cute...sarah you are so creative! I have some red & pink yarn around, I might have to make one of my own, even if it is a little late.

Maybe you could sew sequins on to represent the sprinkles? I always want to call them splinkles, that's what tony's kids called them for the longest time... :)
