Rows 8-10: **You will now work in the round** Continue to sc around in each row.
Rows 11-16: Change to new color and continue to sc in each st around.
On last row, insert your hook in the stitch to the right in stead of the left. Continue to sc as usual but you will be working around from right to left instead of left to right. This creates a beautiful edging, also known as the crab stitch. Sl st in last st and fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Cut a long piece of the heart colored yarn and thread through your blunt needle weave in and out around the heart to outline it more and give it better definition. Embroider in any areas that need more of the heart color to fill it out. Fasten off and weave in ends.
You’re done! Great job!
