Hello everyone! Hope your doing good as summer is here working with wool gets quite difficult so I like to switch to crocheting with thread as its easy to work with and there’s not much yarn on your lap keeps you cool and yet creates delicate works.
this summer I will share a series crochet projects made with thread.
today I would like to share this cute heart lace motif (vintage style) this is a very unique pattern.
you can use it as tablemat, coasters, dream catcher or just as embellishments to your tops, hand bags well you can just be creative.
From quite some time I was planning to design a long top with crochet embellishments I tried a few patterns but couldn’t get it right. After a few attempts found this vintage style crochet patterns and it was just the right motif for my top Im happy with how the motif turned out.
I will share some pictures of my top once its ready.
have written down the notes for you ? made it as simple as possible. Also Included step by step pictures too.
Before we get started
this pattern is just a motif an idea which you can build on and skill level is intermediate.
You might think there’s a lot of steps but keep going to create this beautiful piece. The first motif might take time but it gets easier from the second motif.
This motif is worked from the center here a flower is created which is eventually shaped into a heart ❤ which is completed by giving it a petal shape border.
Cotton thread size 10 for small motif
Size 20 for bigger motif
Steel crochet hook size 6 or (1.65mm)
Size of the motif depends on the thread and hook used.
