  1. Where is the pattern for the 1st time on this post, the yellow(?) crochet piece that looks like a heart?

    • There’s no pattern for that piece. It was from a set of them that I picked up at a thrift store. However, it’s a basic pineapple crochet motif; you can find many similar patterns around the web if you search that term. <3
