Tuesday Tutorials – Crochet Heart Garland

Valentine’s Day is officially less than a month away, and it’s never too early to start planning! I love the warm and cozy feeling of decorations made from yarn (hence why I love to knit and crochet), and this crocheted heart garland is no exception! Whether you’re having a small party with singles, or your and your partner are celebrating as a couple, this cute heart garland will definitely add some festive charm to your home.

I found the original pattern at Sarahndipities.com, which has tons of cool tutorials and projects.  Give this a try and have some fun decorating!
