Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  Today I have a pattern for these little heart ornaments :)  They are made with medium weight yarn and a 4.5 mm hook.  I used  Caron Simply Soft yarn to make the ones pictured.  This is a good project for using up scraps of yarn!  Just a small amount is needed to make each one.
This pattern is 4 rows.  Finished size is 2".  
a small amount of medium weight yarn
4.5 mm hook
yarn needle for weaving in ends
a small amount of size 3 crochet thread for the hanging loop
12 mm ribbon rose
sewing needle
Stitch Abbreviations

ch- chain
sc- single crochet
dc- double crochet
tr- treble crochet
yo- yarn over
sl st- slip stitch

Special Stitches

1st tr decrease- keeping last loop of each tr on hook, tr in same st, tr in next 2 dc, yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

2nd tr decrease- keeping last loop of each tr on hook, tr in next 3 dc, yo and pull through all 4 loops on hook.

Pattern Notes

( ) - enclose additional information and the amount of stitches you will have at the end of a row.
Row 1- ch 2, sc in the second ch from hook, turn.

Row 2- ch 3 (counts as the first dc now and throughout), 4 dc in next sc, turn.  (5 dc)

Row 3- ch 3, dc in first dc, dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc, turn.  (7 dc)

Row 4- ch 4, 1st tr decrease (see special stitches), ch 4, sl st in next dc, ch 4, 2nd tr decrease, ch 4, sl st in same dc, fasten off and weave in ends.  (4 ch-4 spaces, 2 tr decreases, 2 sl st)

Here is my attempt at drawing a chart lol, I hope that it makes sense!

The next part is to attach the loop for hanging.  
Step One-  Take the size 3 crochet thread and cut a 7" piece.  Fold it in half and thread both ends onto the yarn needle.  With the wrong side facing up go under the back loop of the center slip stitch on row 4 and the stitch below it.  
Step Two-  Pull through leaving a small loop.
Step 3-  Bring the needle back through the loop at the top.
Step 4- Pull slightly on both ends to tighten the loop and tie a knot at the top.

The final part is attaching the ribbon rose!  Cut a long piece of sewing thread and thread it onto the sewing needle.  Starting on the wrong side pull the needle through to the front (right side) and back a few times to lock the thread in place, ending on the wrong side.  Pull through to the front, this time going through the center of the ribbon rose.  Weave the needle back through the rose, and back through to the wrong side of your work.  Do this a few times until the rose no longer loose.  Knot both ends together and trim off any extra thread.

I hope you enjoy this pattern!  Have a wonderful day! :D
