Free Chart — Alternating Hearts for Making Crocheted Trims and Edgings

This free chart has many potential uses, but I used it for making filet crochet trim.

After working the chart in filet crochet, I had another idea. The filet crochet design is pretty, but it's subtle. What about making another trim where the heart motifs really pop out from the background?

So, I whipped up a new trim pattern, where the hearts are cross-stitched on top of the trim. This gives you the option of easily creating color contrast between the background and heart motifs.

I like both versions, and I hope you'll enjoy crocheting them too. The free crochet patterns for both versions of the design are available on our website.
