(and potholder)
Carola Wijma July 2010

Choice of yarns or combination of yarns makes a great difference. Adding or not adding the round with picots also makes a hutch difference.

Remarks round 4 Round 4 is worked in the back loops. It makes a difference, see the pictures below.

When you use only 1 color or when rounds 4 and 5 are worked in the same color its makes no difference how you work these rounds.

When you don’t want to add the round of picots it also looks better to work round 4 in the back loops Color rnd 5 shows

In back loops In back loops, color rnd 5 doesn’t show. Remarks round 3

It can make a difference how you work the tip of the heart in round 3. You can crochet the 3 corner stitches in 1 stitch or in 3 stitches. See the pictures below. When the center heart is made in a dark color and round 4 is in a light color it looks better to make the corner in 3 stitches instead of in 1 stitch.
