Valentine Heart Pin

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

This Pin is a project from the crochet class I took in July 2004 at the CGOA chain link conference in Manchester NH. The class was teaching how to crochet with beads with flat work (rather than in the usual round). The ruffle around the heart and the charms are my tweeking of the design.

Finished just in time for Valentines 2005!

Posted in time for Valentine 2006!!

I made up a bunch of these for a holiday exchange. I can no longer find the pattern on the web. Thank heavens I long ago learned to save patterns when I saw them and not to go looking for them on the web once I finally got around to wanting to make it!!

If anyone knows if/where this pattern is still posted please let me know and I'll provide a link. The pattern was originally published at with a copyright date of 10/26/99 by Esther Cott.

Update 4/25/10:
The pattern can currently be found here!

Update 10/13/12: The pattern is currently at the Wayback Machine and can be found here.

Hopefully the Wayback Machine will be a stable home for this pattern but this pattern has moved around! If you visit here and the above link is no longer working, please let me know and I'll see if I can track it down again.

There is another post where I help clarify how to work round 5 of this pattern - Dress Bookmark - Revisited
