Free Danish Heart Crochet Pattern
“Recently, I saw in a magazine the pattern for a knit version of the Danish Heart and my own heart did several palpitations. A Danish Heart in YARN?? So absolutely fabulous!! However, the pattern required sewing knit pieces together BEFORE you even got to the weaving of the heart. Sorry, but excessive piecing and joining makes me eventually hate the project that I set out so excitedly to make.
Knowing that I could crochet a flat oval quite easily, I figured out how to incorporate the necessary slits into the pattern so that when the oval is completed WITH ONE PIECE OF YARN the piece is ready to weave. Yay! So easy!”
Danish hearts are traditionally used as a Christmas ornament that is made of paper that’s woven together and eventually forms a basket that can be filled with gifts or treats. Now you can make your own crocheted Danish heart with the help of this tutorial! Granted, you won’t be able to use it as a basket, but you will be able to enjoy its Nordic charm from Christmas to Valentine’s Day or for the whole year if you prefer!
