Notes:
  • Don’t forget to check out Quick Tips if you need a how-to stitch reminder.  This pattern uses the color changing technique.
  • When crocheting into the magic ring any tail ends are crocheted over hiding the tail ends inside the DC stitch.  You will need to weave in ends that are not crochet over.
  • When joining the granny with a SS, insert hook from front to back.

Join-As-You-Go Squares:

The heart cozy pattern consists of 27 mini granny squares, all joined as you go.  We begin with the top left square and work your way down each row then back to top.  The squares consist of 12DC, and 4CH 1 spaces, each side of the square has 3DC’s.  Not only is sequence important but where you start, stop, and change colors matters too.  The attached file below includes a diagram, which explains what color to start with, direction you are working and where to join.  If you prefer I will also walk you through each step.
