Note: When working Rounds 3 and 4, skip an additional ch-space in the valleys between the tops of hearts at top of throw, to allow edging to lie flat.
Round 3 (Right Side): With Right Side facing, join A in any ch-3 space, *ch 4, drop loop from hook, insert hook from front to back through next ch-3 space, place loop back on hook and draw through to front; repeat from * around; join with slip st in base of first ch-4. Fasten off.
