Purple heart

Is your purple heart beating? I bet it is.

I made myself a fluffy reminder that every day has to be Women’s Day not just today. Make one for yourself and keep it close. Don’t forget that equality is a long trip for all of us and we need to keep asking questions. Or maybe make one for a friend and start a conversation with it.

I made mine with a nice purple cotton and a 2.5 mm hook. You will also need a marker.Place it at the end of each round.

Round 1: Make a magic ring and work 6 double crochet stitches (dc) inside.
Round 2: Work 1inc (increase) in each stitch.
Round 3: Work 1dc in next st and 1inc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 4: Work 2dc in next 2sts and 1inc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 5: Work 3dc in next 3sts and 1inc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 6-8: Work 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Cut the cotton leaving a 10cm tail. Make another piece exactly like this one.

Round 9: You will continue with the next stitch in the first part you made. Place 1dc just after the cotton tale and continue working dc until you have left 5 sts to finish this part. We will leave these 5sts to make the join between both parts so we will continue working dc around the second part until we reach the end of the round.
Round 10-11: Work 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 12: Work 1dec (decrease) in next 2sts an 11dc in next 11sts. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 13: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 6dc in next 6sts. Repeat until the end of the round. With the tail loose from the first part sew and fasten the gap between both parts. Start filling the heart as you work as it will be more difficult when you are closer to the end.
Round 14: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 5dc in next 5sts. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 15: Work 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 16: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 4dc in next 4sts. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 17-18: Work 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 19: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 3dc in next 3sts. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 20-21: Work 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 22: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 2dc in next 2sts. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 22: Work 1dec in next 2sts an 1dc in next st. Repeat until the end of the round.
Round 23: Work 1dec in next 2sts. Repeat until the end of the round. Fasten off.

Enjoy your purple heart and share it! 😉
