Hang on to your love

Heart 1

 
It is the time of the year we see a lot of romantic meal deals with a bottle of bubbly at the supermarket.   Everyone is busy organising their romantic dinner with their loved one.  Some may take their lover to an elegant restaurant as a treat, some perhaps a nice meal at home, cozy together in private.  If you are the later group, this crochet hearts garland is the perfect decoration for you
.

Heart 2 This multicolour crochet heart garland took only 2 hours of my Sunday to complete – I was forced to watch Godfather 2 while I was crocheting this!  Surely, you can spare 2 hours of your time to make something to colour up your house and impress your other half.  I randomly mixed red, pink and white yarn to create this look.  As long as you have basic crochet skills, you should be able to make this without any problems.  I am happy to provide guidance if you find the pattern confusing or incorrect!
