  1. Hi there,
    I am a seasoned crochet, and I can’t figure this pattern out at all. I was hoping you could help me. Thanks.

  2. I’ll try, but you’ll have to be more specific about where you are having trouble. The hearts are created in two parts. You start out with a chain that has some clusters in the middle of it. These clusters form the top curves of the hearts. Then you turn and work back along the chain. When you get to the clusters, you work the lower part of the hearts as described.
    The symbol chart shows the hearts upside down, because that is the way they are worked.

    This is similar to the way I worked the Endless Shamrocks Garland.
    You may find it helpful to try crocheting that first, and watch the video tutorial for that garland.

  3. So sorry, I should have been more specific. I look at the picture pattern, and you chain more then 15 to start dont you? And I gather the row that’s in black is the first row and the purple row is the 2nd row? I will check out your other pattern that you mentioned as well. Thanks.

  4. The stitch diagram is a condensed version of the pattern, so you may be confused if you are trying to match it exactly to the words.
    The very first chain you make is 21 (ch 15 + ch 6).

  5. Hii, I want to make a smaller necklave with three hearts only. I am having difficulty understanding the pattern. I have completed 6 (2dc) clusters in the first row. After that, the pattern says “ch 20—22 clusters, 57 chains.” Does this mean I have to make 20 chains and 22 clusters again, or does this mean that I chain 20 for the 22 clusters made earlier? By that logic, I should make 8 chains for the 6 clusters I have made in my project? Also, I am confused about the 57 chains step. is it another 57 chains for the original pattern. For my pattern, how to reduce and customise the original gauge. How many chains should i put for 8 chains in the earlier step? Would be great if you can help me.

  6. The “22 clusters, 57 chains” is not telling you to do 22 more clusters and 57 more chains. It’s a stitch count telling you what you have after you have completed Row 1. You’ll want to put as many plain chains on the other side of the clusters as you did at the beginning of the row, plus 5 chains for the button loop.
