I crocheted a sweet heart swag following a pattern by Molly on Design Sponge. Instead of tiny hearts made with cotton thread as Molly did, I used worsted weight yarn. I spaced my hearts closer together by chaining 15 between hearts rather than the 40 suggested when using thin cotton. Fifteen hearts were plenty to drape across a double window.
