Chains of Hearts Bracelet

Crochet a Gift for Valentine's Day or Any Day

This chunky but dainty crocheted bracelet is made from two interlaced chains of adorable little hearts. It's easy to make and can be worked in any yarn—my crocheted bracelet used dark and light pink plarn in 1–8 inch strips.

While making this bracelet, nostalgia hit me. Suddenly, I remembered everyone who received a part of my heart and what happened to us. Why do things like that happen?

What You'll Need

Knowledge of basic crochet stitches and abbreviations is required for this project.

  • 5.0 cm extender chain (1)
  • 1.0 cm lobster lock (1)
  • 1.0 cm metal rings (2)
  • Small amount of yarn in two complementing colors, preferably shades of red (I used light and dark pink plarn—see note below)
  • Suitable crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Pliers

What's Plarn?

Plarn is yarn derived from plastic bags. This article will help you learn the methods of making plarn!

No problem Renee. This pattern is free and you can do whatever you want with it. I hope that 16 yo gets a heart soon.

Renee on December 03, 2011:

I was wondering if I may make some of these for a fund-raiser for a 16 yr old who is waiting for a heart transplant?

Moira Durano-Abesmo (author) from Sagay, Camiguin, Philippines on September 29, 2011:

Oh, I'm honored MARY! You are very welcome and thank you for your comment, my smile is reaching my ears.

I was a licensed science teacher before, so I guess I've learned a few tricks while teaching for 5 years.

LadyShael on September 29, 2011:

You've done a wonderful job all through your hubs, Moira! The pictures are so helpful :-) I'm 59 so this PROVES you can teach an old dog new tricks... IF the teacher is good! I really appreciate the way you put your thoughts and honesty in, like you ADMIT you aren't patient, then give options. For your young years, just in comparison to my 59 years you have learned all these life lessons well, and I am sure you are an awesome Mommy!

Thank you for all the help this has been for me :-)
