Love Granny Square

 How adorable is this solid heart in a granny?? I started making amigurumi hearts because I was just feeling so sad, upset and worried by everything in the news and I knew I needed something positive to focus on! 

I recommend carrying both colors with you as you work your square so you don't have as many ends to weave! 

I used Yarn Bee Soft Sleek and Chunky and a size F hook

You can use any 4 or 5 ply yarn and then go two hook sizes down to create a tight pattern.

HC=Heart Color

BC= Background color

Round 1

using HC make a magic ring, chain 3 2dc, ch3,3dc,ch3,3dc,ch3,3dc, ch 3 and join with beginning of the round

Round 2

using HC chain 3 1 dc in each dc, in corner 2dc, ch 2, 2dc, then dc in each stitch along the side, 2dc, ch2,2dc in corner, repeat until you get to the beginning and join.

Round 3

Using BC skip the first 2 stitches of any side, ch3, dc in nest two stitches, Using HC 1 dc in each stitch 2dc, ch2,2dc in each corner. * The spot where there is 3 stitches in BC is the top of your square.*

Round 4

Starting at top right corner using HC ch3, 2dc,ch2,dc, the dc in next two stitches, change to BC and dc in the next 7 stitches. switch to HC dc in the last 2 stitches, in the corner 2dc,ch2,2dc, dc in the next 9 stitches, change to BC dc in next 2 stitches, 2dc,ch2,2dc in corner, dc in next 2 stitches, switch to HC dc in next 7 stitches, switch to BC dc in next 2 stitches, 2dc, ch2, 2dc in corner, dc in the next 2 stitches, switch to HC dc in the next 9 stitches, and join.

Round 5

Starting at the top right corner using BC 2dc,ch2,2dc in the corner, work 1 dc in the next 15 stitches, work 2dc,ch2,2dc in corner. work 1 dc in the next 2 stitches. Switch to HC work 1 dc in the next 7 stitches, switch to BC work 1 dc in the next 6 stitches, work 2 dc,ch2,2dc in the corner. work 1 dc in the next 6 stitches, switch to HC work 1 dc in the next 3 stitches, switch to BC work 1 dc in the next 6 stitches, work 2 dc,ch2,2dc in the corner. work 1 dc in the next 6 stiches, switch to HC work 1 dc in the next 7 stitches, switch to BC dc in the last 2 stitches and join.

Round 6

Using BC starting at top right corner, *2dc,ch2,2dc in corner, dc in the next 19 stitches* repeat until you have completed the square then join.
