crochetconversationheart finished2 Project: Crochet Conversation Heart Garland
By Emilee Gettle
Growing up, I loved class Valentine’s Day parties, complete with decorated shoeboxes and handmade Valentines. I often stocked up on Conversation Hearts, ensuring that my supply would last me until Easter. I had great fun laying them one by one on the table and making up my own sentimental sentences. Next, I’d lick away to see just how many licks it took to wipe away the quirky messages stamped on each pastel heart.
So this crocheted Conversation Heart Garland is for all those hopeless romantics who are charmed by old fashioned simplicity and who, like me, can’t resist this confection and the lovey-dovey messages behind the cellophane heart window.

8 yards pale green yarn I used Bernat Softee Baby yarn in Mint
3 yards white yarn I used Pattons Beehive Baby Sport yarn in Angel White
