Do you like to decorate your home for Valentine’s Day? This crochet heart garland pattern is just what you need!
This heart crochet pattern will give you a string of cute love hearts to hang as a garland or bunting, but you can also use these for the front of cards, face scrubbies, appliques, nursery decorations or even add a few rows and make coasters!
I’ve used Paintbox cotton aran in shades of pink, but you could use any aran yarn for a crochet garland. DK would work too, they’ll just come out a little smaller.
