Valentines heart bunting

Happy valentines day

I have a heart bunting pattern that I've been working on  for a while.
 I've decided to release it as a free pattern today to share a bit of love.
Please note it is written with UK standard abbreviation which are different to US Abbreviation so I've adding a pic of this conversion chart that might help.









Heart bunting
By Liz Ward – Amigurumi barmy
www.lizwardcrochet.com

Skill level: easy
Time:  2-3 hours
Size: 16x15cm
Tension: Tension is not critical for this.

You will need
4mm crochet hook
dk weight yarn in cream, red, blue and pink
(yarn in photo Drops cotton light)
wool and sewing needle
Ribbon

Abbreviations
Sl st –slip stitch
dc – double crochet
htr – half treble crochet
tr – treble st
hdtr – half double treble crochet
dtr – double treble crochet
st/sts – stitch/stitches

Popcorn stitch To work popcorn stitch first work 5 treble crochet stitches into the same stitch. Next take the working loop off the nook. Thread the hook through the top of the first treble stitch in the group. Pick up the working loop and draw back through the first treble stitch. This pulls the tops of the stitches together and give a more textured finish than a traditional bobble stitch.
Crab st – Work this stitch exactly like a double crochet, except that you are working into the stitch to the RIGHT of your hook (not the left). To start the row, chain one and insert hook into the next full stitch to the right. Pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook
