Hopeful Hearts FREE symbol crochet pattern

Hopeful Hearts 

By Amy B Stitched          

The Hopeful Hearts design was inspired by a family friend named Heather who had recently undergone heart transplant surgery.  There are SO many people affected by this type of surgery and such a vast support system is needed to get through it.  That’s why I put so many hearts into this design.  From the family of the donor making such a life giving choice, to the family of the recipient, hopeful for more time with their loved one. You also have the surgical teams on both sides, doctors and nursing staff to see you through all of the technical stuff. You have friends who provide meals, transportation, funds and a shoulder when you need it.  So many are affected!! So many people LOVE so deeply that they fight along side you.  So Heather…..this is for you…..and for all the others out there who are hopeful for many more tomorrows.

Hopeful Hearts pdf pattern click here  at this time only the symbol version of the pattern is available.  The written pattern is in the works and will be completed once my day job slows down lol
ERRATA: the symbol pattern has been corrected to reflect proper placement of decrease stitches on the top row of the hearts.
