This is a fun idea to dress up a cardigan or blouse! Crocheting around elastic cord makes the center of the heart adjustable, so that you can simply slip it over a button. It is a great way to give a new look to something you already have in your wardrobe. They are easy to take on and off, so you can make one set to wear on different garments.
You can use different yarn weights to create different size hearts using the same instructions. You can also use two or three colors if you change colors in the rounds. If you can find elastic cord in the same color as the thread or yarn you are using, that would be ideal!
Be festive for Valentines day, or for any day of the year! If you decide to make some, don't forget to post photos to the project page on Ravelry. I would love to see how you use them!
The Sweetheart Button Frames pattern is now available as a free download on Ravelry.
