A GIANT Hand Crochet Heart to Spread Valentine’s Love

Crochet Heart Make-4267

Happy Valentine’s Day in advance! I made a ENORMOUS hand crochet heart for you guys out of the coolest, extreme, felted yarn. Yes, a Hand Crochet Heart! Did you know hand crochet was a thing? I’m not sure if it is, but with all this gigantic yarn around, it was only a matter of time before I gave it a whirl, am I right?

I made this gigantic heart JUST for you guys and it’s a GIVEAWAY!  This is my Valentine from me to you for being such amazing followers. My heart is full with grateful thanks!! You have multiple chances to win this gorgeous heart! Enter the Rafflecopter options below!

On top of that, I’m super proud of myself, I made a little stop motion Video Valentine for you to watch. I hope you like it.  Please shower me with good words, because it is HARD learning something new, right?

The extreme yarn to make the heart is the brainchild of the uber talented Jacqui Fink from Australia. She sells this gorgeous extreme knitting (or crocheting!) yarn called K1S1. Not to mention she makes insanely creative art herself! Check out her Instagram feed! If you want a little taste of this yarn and the heart, I’ll be offering a limited number of kits to make this hand crochet heart in my shop – you know you want one!

If you want to give it a whirl on your own, I simply followed my instructions for the mini crocheted hearts pattern from last week.  If you don’t have this yarn, simply ply 4 strands of super bulky yarn together and do the same. Isn’t it cool seeing it so enormous? I love the idea of transforming the very same pattern from something extremely tiny to something extemely HUGE.  This heart is about 2 feet x 1.5 feet!

I hope you enter, because I’d love to think of this heart hanging in some lovely follower’s home!  I’m so excited to be off for a little vacation today.  I am heading to Taos, NM with my family for a little ski get away, followed by time with my mother in Santa Fe! She just moved and I’m excited to explore that city! Have a lovely, lovely Valentine’s Day weekend.
