RED HEART® Super Bulky Weight Yarn. This model made in RED HEART® "Light & Lofty™", 100% acrylic, Art. E708 (6 ounce solid and 4½ ounce multi-color skeins).

Amount: 18 Ounces No. 9376 Wine.

Wire coat hanger (or purchased 12" - wire heart-shaped ring and wire wreath hanger); cardboard; scissors.

Shape wire hanger into a heart shape, then bend hook for hanging loop OR use purchased heart-shaped wire ring.

Yarn Bundle (Make approximately 78): Wind yarn 20 times around a 4" piece of cardboard. Slip these strands off the cardboard. Then, with a sepa­rate 8" strand of yarn, tie strands together at center (see Figure 1); do not cut yarn loops.

Using the ends of the 8" strand, tie the bundle to the ring, positioning the bundle perpendicular to the wire (see Figure 2).

Make another bundle and tie to the ring adjacent to the previous bundle. Continue to make bundles and tie them to the wire in the same way, positioning each bundle against the previous bun­dle and working around the ring until the entire wire ring is filled.
