Using Ecru, ch 46 stitches.
Join with a slip stitch into the first chain stitch to create a loop.  Be careful not to twist your work.  You will work each row of the graph pattern twice in the round (once for each side of your pouch.)
Ch 1, and place a stitch marker into the sl st to mark the beginning of each round.

Attach the heart color, and begin working first row of the graph using the modified sc.  I like to carry both colors through the whole project so that the gauge stays the same.  Remember you will work each row of the graph two times on each round of your work, creating both a front and back side.

Follow the graph, use a sl st into the marked st each round, and ch1 to begin each next row.

FINISHING
Once you’ve completed the pattern, flip the design inside out, and whip stitch along the bottom to form a pouch.

Using Country Red, add some embroidered candy heart words to create the lettering on your candy hearts!
