Row 10 (WS): Ssk, BO to last 2 sts (there’ll also be 1 st on your RH needle), k2tog, BO rem sts.
NOTE: If you’re working in an Aran weight or lighter, BO leaving a long tail for seaming. For heavier weight yarns, I suggest using a separate, lighter weight yarn for seaming.
With WS facing, place two hearts together; stuff ends so they’re sandwiched inside. Using the Wool Needle and strand of yarn, seam to pieces together while also adding more yarn scraps or stuffing as necessary.
Weave in the remaining end.
Cut three, 6″ strands of yarn. Holding strands together, fold them in half. Using a crochet hook, pull loop created by fold through the bottom tip of the heart. Tie for fringe.
Attach 0-ring through the fabric of top-center of heart. Attach earring hook to o-rings.
Repeat for the second heart.
