Look at me trying to get a jump on the next holiday. I always want to do that, because I know that most crafty people are early planners but, alas, I am not an early planner. I’m terrible about planning for things. I’m usually left scrambling to catch up. I hate that about me. So I’m trying to be smart and get a couple Valentine’s Day designs out before the actual holiday rolls around. I hope you like this design, it’s fun and really quick. If you’re fast, you could have it done it less than 2 hours. 😀

You can get an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $.50.

Materials:

  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
  • Yarn needle

Gauge:

  • 4″ x 4″ = 16 scs x 16 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • RS: right side (side that faces out)
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the last st.Ravelry link
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • You can replace the first row with a foundation single crochet row if you’d like to.
  • Following the first row, sc into the back loop only.
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parentheses means.
  • Color A is white, color B is grey, and color C pink.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.

Note:

  • Every row of the sides are worked into the back loop only.
  • Every stitch in the sides portion of the pattern is a single crochet, because of this the directions only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses then tells you how many single crochets to make.
