Thank you! It's lovely! I tried a different pattern, but it just didn't have the simplicity and beauty of your heart:)

Sincerely,
Susan

Love this! I added a small bead at the point, and did he last slip stitch over a ring so they are stitch markers. Will be using them for a Valentine Swap gift.

I love the look of this heart, and I'm an avid crocheter, but I must be missing something. When you say to turn, chain 2, and double crochet in the "same stitch..." the same as what? I don't understand which stitch that is referring to. I've tried a few different ways and I can't seem to figure it out.

Hi Jenn, thanks for your comment. I just made a drawing of the stitches and will post it now.
