Do your kids have jeans with rips or holes in them? Or could the pants use some flare?! These simple little crochet hearts made from Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn are a cute way to make fashion fun! Hearts, stars, circles, and more! You could use any crochet shape to patch up the jeans. I thought these fuzzy pipsqueak hearts would be perfect for Zoe, especially since Valentine’s Day is only about a month away!

Crochet Heart Pattern:
Chain 7, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 2-3: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 4: SC in first 3 stitches, ch 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 5-7: SC in each stitch across, ch1, turn (3 SC)
When you get to the lats row, continue to SC around the heart. When you get to bottom stitch (the one with the your slip knot) SC + Chain 1 + SC all in one stitch.
Then when you get to the top “v” indent, slip stitch (instead of SC). Join, fasten off and weave in ends (or leave a long tail you are using it as an appliqué).
Note: I didn’t SC around the inner part of the heart (the part with the “v” indent”). I found the heart kept it’s shape better this way when using the furry yarn.
Chain 5, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, ch 1, turn (4 SC)
Row 2: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (4 SC)
Row 3: SC in first 2 stitches, ch 1, turn (2 SC)
Row 4: SC in each stitch across, fasten off (2 SC)
