After I published the original Aromatherapy Cloth pattern , I decided to make a cute little heart shaped one.
Cotton yarn: 1 skein will make several hearts.
How to Treble Crochet:
Just in case you have not yet learned how to Treble Crochet:
Step 1: Yarn Over the hook twice
Step 2: Insert hook into the stitch, yarn over hook and pull through stitch. You will now have 4 loops on your hook.
Step 3: Yarn over hook and pull through the first 2 loops, You will now have 3 loops remaining on the hook.
Step 4: Yarn over hook and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook, You will now have 2 loops remaining on the hook.
Step 5: Yarn over hook and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook. You will have 1 loop left and the treble stitch is completed.
Heart Shaped Aromatherapy Cloth
Foundation row: HDC in 2nd chain from hook, HDC in the next 8 Chains. You will have 9 HDC
Row 2: Chain 1, Turn, HDC in each stitch across. You will have 9 HDC
Rows 3-6: Repeat Row 2: Four times.
We will now begin making the top part of the hearts. ( you will be working in a round for this section.
Turn and do not chain 1.
Step 1: Slip stitch into the first stitch.

Step 3: Place 9 Treble crochets into the next stitch.
Step 4: Skip the next 3 stitches

Step 8: Slip stitch into the corner of the row.
Step 9: Rotate to the next side.
Step 10: Place 9 single crochet evenly across the row.
