First you need to make 2 hearts from the Crochet Heart Motif Applique  pattern & tutorial then grab your tapestry needle and cut a long tail from one of the colors you used, or go for an extra effect by choosing another color that looks good with both colors used.

About the Author:

Hi I'm Candy from Meladora's Creations and I design crochet patterns and film them for my YouTube channel. I want to start by saying, I am by no means a professional teacher. I figure things out as I go along and I love playing with yarn! This is how I have discovered new crochet stitches. I am a mother of two and I live in Israel presently, but I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I met a man on an online game and became friends and through time we fell in love and I came out here to Israel to be together. From lack of knowing how to speak Hebrew, I had to find a way to help take care of our two kids, so after sharing my crochet projects online and being asked to do a tutorial on one of them, I finally broke down and tried it.
