I've been meaning to post pattern for Valentine's Day for weeks now. Last Friday almost started writing, then the blizzard Nemo came and the rest I want to forget. The power outage for 2 days, cold and dark home-I had enough winter for this year!
But the V Day is almost here and I am super excited to share the pattern for a heart shaped gift box!
chunky yarn (you can use other type of yarn, but the box will be smaller)
hook# N/9.00mm and hook# H/5.00mm
30 min of your free time :)
With hook# N/9.00mm create Magic Ring, Ch3(counts as first dc), dc 15 inside the ring,pull the ring tight but do not join.(You will have 16 dc sts)
Now I am going to give every stitch a number, so it will be easier to see where and how many stitches go to.
1. dc, treble crochet st
2. 3 treble crochet sts
3. 3 treble crochet sts
4. 2 dc sts.
5. 2 dc sts.
8. treble crochet st
13. 3 treble crochet sts
14. 3 treble crochet sts
15. treble crochet st, dc
16. Ch3, and slip stitch
The heart is done:
So you should end up with two big hears and two smaller ones.
Take two hearts of the same size and start crocheting around joining two pieces with sc stitches.
Make 2 dc into the treble crochet stitches of the previous round.
When you will complete the first round, repeat one more time.
So after two rounds, your heart will have nice rounded shape.
Now when both pieces are completed, you can put them on top of each other and join with the ribbon, button or anything you like. :)
Now you have one of a kind gift box! And there is left to do is to write a note for someone special!
Love and be loved!
And as always,
