Fasten off and cut the yarn.
Hook the yarn in the stitch after the 7th worked in the 9th row and repeat the instructions again to make the other half of the heart.
Finish the heart, work 1 SC in each stitches around to make a border with a contrast yarn color.
Work an INC of SC in the point of the heart.
