I have to admit, I have never been very interested in decorating for Valentine’s Day. But this year I thought I would give it a try. I have this long bannister, and I thought a cute, pink garland would be a romantic touch for the upcoming holiday.

It turned out pretty cute, and I love the stripy, hombre yarn. 
Make about 20 hearts for an approx 8 1/2 ‘ garland. (not including ends)
6 mm hook, medium weight yarn. I used cotton yarn from Peaches n Creme, in Strawberry Stripes. 
Start with 6 chains.

Next, work one sc down into the st from the previous round. It will be between the st you just worked, and the sc you will work next. It will be long.

finished my garland by making a 10′ chain (extra to tie the ends up) and hot glued the hearts to the ch. Be careful to make sure that your ch doesn’t get twisted when you are gluing your hearts in place.  I used a piece of thick ribbon to tie the middle to the banister.
