Heart of My Heart Placemat
Heart of My Heart Placemat is a versatile crochet pattern featuring Brava Worsted Weight yarn in perfect Valentine's Day shades of Red, Rouge, and White. The Heart motif is crocheted in the round beginning with a heart-in-heart bold Rouge center, surrounded by the deep Red outer heart, and trimmed in a graceful, ruffled, White border. The finished Heart is sewn to the Background which is separately crocheted in Rouge rows, then finished with White and Red edging rounds.
The pattern works in several fun and exciting ways. Instead of using as a placemat, hang the finished work as a decorative wall hanging. Use the heart motif alone as an applique. Change up the color scheme for a distinctive look or to match any décor. Consider burgundy, orchid, and ivory hues for a more Victorian look; tones of cream, taupe and ecru for an earthy feel; or, perhaps, shades of purple for a whole different vibe! Bonus idea: Make a second backing to join and create a pillow! Endless possibilities!
The finished Background rectangle measures about 14.5" wide by just over 12" high. The Heart is about 9.75" across at the widest place and just over 8.25" high if you measure between lines extended from the top of the curve and the bottom point.
