Overlay Crochet Heart

I love designing patterns, although having a little ten month old person trying to grab the yarn and crochet hook from me while I’m working can cause a bit of frustration sometimes, but then she’s always so pleased with herself when she grabs the yarn that it’s actually quite cute ❀

  5. Why haven’t I seen your blog before?? I am going to have a lovely time looking through… do you know that the Creative Crochet Crew featured your heart tutorial on Facebook this morning? Glad I found you… now following on FB :)x

    • Thank you so much!
      I’m new to the blog-thing, so I’ve only been around for a little while.
      I only just saw the Creative Crochet Crew’s share on facebook, been rather busy crocheting etc today!
      Thanks for the facebook follow too πŸ™‚

  6. Ok, this is probably a dumb question, but this is my 1st attempt at overlay crochet. After I finish each round when I go to change the color, do I actually fasten off the yarn from the previous round, or just leave the loop for when I use that color later?

    • Hi Kim,
      It’s not a dumb question at all.
      It’s completely up to you how you end each round. I tend to cut the yarn because it makes sewing in the ends easier and creates a neater looking back but if you want to make a 3D heart by sewing two together you could just leave the yarn and take it up again when you need too.
      I hope that helps and please send me a photo of the finished heart so I can see it stephanie@radiate.co.za
