Introduction

This is a pattern for a "conversation hearts" scarf. It's really pretty basic. You're going to make a whole ton of heart motifs, then join them all together. This could also be adapted to turn this into a blanket.

Materials List

Worsted Weight Yarn in candy heart colors. The scarf pictured uses 5 different colors–white, purple, pale yellow, pink, and green. One skein of each. The example uses a "light" worsted acrylic.

Size F/4.00mm crochet hook

Yarn or tapestry needle

Finished Size

One heart motif measures 4" (10.2cm) across. Finished scarf is approximately 51" (128cm) long.

Gauge

One heart motif measures 4 inches (10.2cm) at the widest point.

Notes

To help in thinking about this as you construct the hearts, the hearts are a three round granny square. One corner of the square is used as the point of the heart. The heart’s “bumps” are placed on two of the sides.

When I constructed the example, I made 10 hearts in each of 5 different colors. I ended up with two left over. I still think this is easier than telling you to make 9 of two colors and 10 of three, because assembly can be confusing.

Good luck!

Assembly

Sew one more heart into the center, covering the hole between the hearts. Arrange the hearts at random or by formula.

I've seen a lot of heart patterns but this one is by far my favorite!!!! I always hated making one of the "top bumps" then fastening off n rejoining to make the other. I LOVE THIS!!! I'm gonna make a bunch of hearts for Valentines day!

I love this pattern and want to make it as well, but i got a bit confused on round 4. How is it possible to skip the items in parentheses?  Please explain a bit more clearly thanks.

I fell in love with this pattern on sight and for two weeks now I have been trying to work it. I'm a left hander so that makes it harder for me, but I am having serious problems with this pattern. Have you thought of doing a YOUTUBE video of this?
