About healthandhobby

I am a stay-at-home wife and new mom. I love to cook , crochet, reading novels, exercise, browsing internet for hours and exploring new things within my approach. My blog is about how I try to stay healthy, fit and active. Also my hobby & love for crochet and crafts I do for my family and friends. Few other things about me are: ~ I am basically from India who came to USA after marriage. ~I am a wife of very loving and caring husband and proud mother of a beautiful little girl ūüĎ™( little happy family). ~I love exploring new things to try and talking to strangers (which my hubby hates ūüėĄ). ~ I am a natures person, love staying close to natural things like river, trees, green fields with lots of birds chirping around me, fresh wind flowing through my hairs, sound of clam and clean water of river.... So we decided to live a place like this someday and we finally got a chance when we moved to hubby's new place of job. Look at the pic ūüĎá from my bedroom window.. Isn't it amazing..

Crochet Heart Strings

It will make a cute valentine’s day project. So easy to follow pattern. Thinking about what things I can make out of it..

Make My Day Creative

Heart Strings 2 row pattern Heart Strings ‚Äď an easy 2 row pattern!

How cute are these little hearts? These heart strings are quick to make and can be used for lots of craft projects.  Mini garlands, gift wrapping, bracelets and even as a fancy edging.  I tied some round a jar candle as an easy alternative to making a jar cover!

Use Heart Strings to make an easy jar cover! Use Heart Strings to make an easy jar cover!

The best bit is it is just 2 rows of crochet with no joining of motifs, and no cutting and re-joining of the yarn. Scroll down for pdf patterns! (US and UK notation) You can use any leftover stash yarn and a matching hook size.  Mine are made with size 3mm and 4mm hooks.


Ch a multiple of 4 +1 (eg for a 5 heart string ch21)

Tip: crochet R1 through both loops of the chain ‚Äď this keeps the dip‚Ķ
