If you liked my Pop Goes My Heart Beanie, then you’ll enjoy this matching bracelet! This bracelet has the same 3D hearts on it that the brim of the Pop Goes My Heart Beanie did and is a great accessory for Valentine’s Day or any day of the year. Sizes are for toddler and child/small adult, but by going up a hook size, it can easily be made for a larger adult wrist as well.

Heart Directions: Around the next post (sl st, Tr, 2DC, Hdc, 3sc) Chain 3. Rotate your work so you are able to work around the post previous to the one you just worked around. (3sc, hdc, 2 DC, tr, sl st.) From here, you will insert your hook under the sl st from the beginning left section of the heart and also through the stitch right behind the heart. (It should be located right above the first post that was worked around). Grab the main yarn color and pull it through the stitch that you just went through, the sl st, and the remaining loop on the hook.
**Note: When changing from the contrasting color to the main color, make sure to tightly pull on the contrasting color and carry the contrasting color behind the main color between hearts.
Row 1: In Main color, Fhdc 27. Ch 2. Turn. (27)
Row 2: DC in the same stitch as the chain 2 and in each stitch across. Ch 1. Turn. (27)
Row 3: Hdc in the same stitch as the chain 1 and in the next 2 st. Before completing the 3rd hdc, change to the contrasting color. Make a heart. Make a hdc in that same stitch behind the heart and in the next 5 st. *Make a heart. Hdc in the stitch behind the heart and in the next 5 stitches* Repeat from * to * 2 more times (4 hearts total). Fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Finishing: Overlap the bracelet with the final heart.over the empty section on the one end. Attach the 5/8 inch button on the bottom flap of the bracelet. Make sure to line it up with the hole in the middle of the heart. Once attached, put the button through the buttonhole in the heart. This will allow easy on/off of the bracelet.
