Gauge and Measurements

The heart measures 1.37 inches (3.5 cm) in width and 1.18 inches (3 cm) in height, utilizing the yarn and hook mentioned above.

The gauge is not crucial for this pattern’s success. However, I prefer to use a hook size that is one or two sizes smaller or larger than the hook recommended on the yarn package. You’re welcome to adjust the yarn and hook size to create hearts of different sizes.

Let’s start 

Round 1.

You have the option to begin the project with either a magic ring or a double magic ring, but I suggest starting with the double magic ring to avoid having to secure the starting yarn tail later on.
