Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Here’s a pretty little thing that just fell out of my head one day, and I thought I’d write up the pattern to share with you!

It’s easy to make for a beginner with the basic stitches, and works up super fast.  A great little motif for adding to pretty much anything… headbands, hats, keychains, bags, scarves and much more.  Great for last minute Valentine’s day inventory!

Woohoo! This is a free pattern which you can read straight from my page by scrolling down or if you would like to download the pdf for printing off you can access it by clicking on the heart at the bottom of this page.  :D

Please remember that although this is a free pattern, and you can make as many hearts to give away or sell as you wish, you may NOT copy, redistribute, or take credit for the pattern itself or photos.  They are covered by the same copyright law as paid patterns.  By all means share the love with your hooky friends by linking them to this post.  (It’ll be free for them too :P )  Please help me to reach more people by adding this to your Ravelry Queue here.  Liking, sharing and commenting is not essential but very very much appreciated. :D

So without further ado, here’s the pattern:
