For the upcoming Valentine's Day I decided to crochet a heart garland for one of the dressers in the living room. After some quick search on the net, I found a pattern very similar to what I had in mind. I knew that I didn't want to have a red garland, so I used two shades of pink instead.
One of the reasons why I preferred pink was that my dresser is dark brown, and my Valentine's Day decoration would look better with a little touch of candy-floss pink.
However, there was one thing I had underestimated: The fun of making crochet hearts! I couldn't make the garland longer because my curious kittens might try to pull it down when I wasn't around. Hmmm! What could I do then? Of course crochet another garland for the other dresser, which was originally a bookcase. Ta daaa!
You can find the basic heart pattern at Suzie's Stuff or Skip to my Lou. I worked the first 2 rounds for the darker pink hearts. For the small hearts I only crocheted the first round. For the final touch, I used a mocha brown yarn for the chain. I'm really happy with the result. The pink hearts are cheering me up every time I look at them.
