To make a mini crochet heart:

Start with a magic circle or a slip knot on your hook. *If you’re starting with the slip knot, be sure to keep the loop loose, as you’ll be working several stitches into it!

ch 2.

All of the following stitches will be worked into either the magic circle or the slip knot.

2 dc. 2 hdc. 1 dc.

You’re already at the halfway point of your heart! You’ll now repeat the same stitches, but in reverse to create the other half.

2 hdc. 2 dc. ch 2.

Sl st into the magic circle or slip knot, and fasten off. Pull the magic circle or slip knot closed. Weave in the ends.
