After 2013, 2014 is going to be another year of weddings. I’m always quite excited when someone is getting married, especially when they’re close to me :) So after making cake toppers last year, I offered a good friend to help her with the decoration. With the confidence of one wedding item under my “belt”, I thought this one should be slightly easier to tackle. It might be possible be that I was slightly too optimistic on that front ;) So this time there won’t be cake toppers, I’m in charge of the bunting. Even though I’ve got still some time till the summer I thought that I should start early with the designs, then I’ve got enough time to make the proper big banner in the end. One of the banner elements is supposed to have a heart included in the triangle itself and after playing around with some yarn over the weekend I came up with my Granny Heart Triangle :). As Valentine’s day is approaching and I see more and more Valentine’s day patterns popping up I thought I’ll let this Granny Heart Triangle transform into a Valentine’s Heart Bunting for you to enjoy :)

  8. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. My son is getting married this year and this will be perfect.

  9. Hi there wow what a lovely pattern!!! Just a question if I may: in row 2 every corner should have 2dc 2chains 2 dc, however should I follow the pattern it seems in the last corner only end up having 2dc thus ending with 2dc 2chains SS in beg 3 chains. Hope I make sense. It make the rest a little bit trickey because I am not sure if you included those 2dc. Really hope I make sense. Thank you

      Thank you :) And yes you’re right! Thanks for spotting this! On the pic you can see that they’re 2 dc 2 ch and 2 dc in every corner. Just corrected the pattern :) San x

  10. I am a bit confused.. In round 2, there are 36 stitches when the round is finished. But round three has 37 stitches, and the bottom point of the heart ends up shifted to the right side a bit. After chain 1 in round 3, am I supposed to do the first of the 6 stitches in the same stitch as round 2s finishing slip stitch? That is the only way I can “solve” it. Hope this makes sense… Thank you!
