Crocheted Double Heart Magnet

12 Feb
Here we are at the twelfth of another month, and it’s time for another one of my original patterns to be posted for you.
 
At the end of January, I realized that I didn’t really have anything special for Valentines Day in my original pattern collection.  So, I began designing one.  This is what I came up with, and I hope you enjoy it.
 
I know there are only 2 days until Valentine’s Day, and I took that into consideration when designing, knowing full well that I would not be posting until the twelfth.  This is a pretty easy pattern, and I have no doubt that you can crochet several of these in enough time.
 
If you have any questions, comments, or thoughts, I’d love to hear them.
 
If you decide to give this pattern a try, I’d also love to hear about it.
 
Be blessed and stay creative!🙂
