Taking your tapestry needle, line two hearts up on either side of Scarf to the right of center in between Rows 4 and 12. The bottom of the Heart should be on the seam of the chevron, two rows up from CC1. Sew the two hearts together with the Scarf in between, being careful that the needle comes out of the heart on the back, where you stuck it in on the front.
When you sew down to the point you started at, tie and knot together, snip the ends. Insert your hook through the center of Heart and pull the ends up and inside.
Rep with a Heart in between Rows 4 and 12 to the left of center.
Rep with Hearts in between Rows 98 and 106 to the left and right of center.
With any CC, measure 72 strips of 10.5” / [27 cm] long pieces.
Separate these into groups of 4 strips, there will be 9 groups on each end.
Loop these groups in half and push through half way, then, using hook, pull the ends through the loop you created.
Rep by adding a tassel at each of the corners and peaks, and halfway between each.
Trim ends at the end, either making a straight edge or keeping the chevron effect. Your choice!
