Granny Square Heart Tutorial


Valentine's Day is upon on us so I thought I would make up a quick and cute themed pattern! This adorable Granny Square Heart can be used and gifted in so many ways. As a fabulous trivet, dish cloth, coaster, or wash cloth. You could even use it as an applique on a t-shirt, onesie, or pillow.  

Please let me know if you find any mistakes in the pattern so I can quickly correct them! 

Materials needed:

Crochet Hook (I used a 5mm)
2 coordinating worsted weight yarns (I used Lily Sugar and Cream)
Needle for weaving in ends
Scissors

Abbreviations:

Sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain stitch
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
sp – space
beg - beginning
