Tapestry Stitch Hearts
sc [dc] top and dc [tr] bottom
dc [tr] for the long heart
same pattern different stitch
sc [dc], for the more rounded heart shape
basic colour change as you make the last st, of first colour, carry the first yarn through the second colour stitches, repeat the colour change to complete the heart.
Flowers done in the same way
half make the stitch
complete the stitch with the next colour
you can see how each stitch is then in the correct colour
Learn to colour change then you can create more intricate patterns following a chart, just like a cross stitch pattern
In fact cross stitch patterns if you use sc [dc], are very useful in crochet tapestry stitch.
Some simple but effective designs worth trying when you first begin
Basic tapestry stitch flowers always look good layered
use as many colours as you like..but be aware they need to be carried with ib the stitches and too many in a round can be very bulky to crochet over. Loved this tiny piece but it was just too many yarns in one round needed a re think on the number of colours in one round.
simple shaped letters work well as a beginners experiment a sheet of graph paper, some coloured pencils and you can design your own simple graph to follow
