Star

Twist the yarn into a loop and work 5 double crochet (dc) into it. Continue working in the spiral, moving straight to the next row.

Row 1: work 2 dc into each dc = 10 dc.

Row 2: *1 dc, work 2 dc into the next dc*, repeat *–* to end of round = 15 dc.

Row 3: *2 dc, work 2 dc into the next dc*, repeat *–* to end of round = 20 dc.

Working flat, begin the points of the star:

Rows 4–6: work 3 dc, 1 slip stitch (sl st), chain 1 (ch 1) and turn work.

Rows 7–8: work 2 dc, 1 sl st, ch 1 and turn work.

Row 9: work 2 dc, turn work and work 6 sl sts into the left edge of the point. You have now completed the first point.

Work four more points to the star following rows 4–9.

Work 1 row of dc around the star.

Make another piece in the same manner but don't break the yarn as you will join the pieces later.

Finishing

Lightly steam the pieces.

Work double crochet to join the pieces. Place some stuffing (e.g. cotton) inside the star before you're done.

Work a chain of sts for a hanging loop. You can also use a suitable ribbon or cord.

 

Heart

Ch 9 for a beginning chain.

Row 1: Work 1 dc into the 2nd ch st from the hook, then work 1 dc into each st in the beginning chain = 8 dc. Turn work.

Rows 2–8: Ch 1, work 1 dc into each dc on the previous row = 8 dc.

Do not turn work. Work 8 dc per side into three of the sides.  

Work into the next side: 1 dc, 1 half treble (htr), 1 treble (tr), 5 double trebles (dtr) into the next st, 1 tr, 1 htr, 1 sl st into the corner. Continue to the next side: 1 htr, 1 tr, 5 dtr into the next st, 1 tr, 1 htr, 1 dc, 1 sl st. Break the yarn.

Make another piece in the same manner but don't break the yarn as you will join the pieces later.

Finishing

Lightly steam the pieces.

Work double crochet to join the pieces. Place some stuffing (e.g. cotton) inside the heart before you're done.

Work a chain of sts for a hanging loop at the top. You can also use a suitable ribbon or cord.
