A rare non book post!

Today I finished writing my first ever crochet pattern. It's only for a heart with loop to hang it (or add it to a key ring). It came about because I was unsatisfied with all the heart patterns I found online and I wanted to make lots of them for #woollyheartsforyarndale2016 that actually looked like hearts.
So I got my daughter to test it and this is the heart she produced:

And for anyone who wants to try to make their own here's my pattern:
