How To Make Raised Stitches In Crochet

Here is a link to the tutorial on how to make the raised stitches to make this heart sample.

This raised stitch heart tote is a free pattern found here.
It began life as a heart place mat, but I decided it looked too pretty to stay inside the house and I turned it into a tote by adding a bottom and handle. It still make a lovely place mat!

This is a detail photo of a baby afghan I used the stitched on.

This is a 12 month size baby dress with the raised stitches.
I'm beginning to think I need to go beyond a heart when designing. I did a word baby afghan once that was love, hugs, kisses--I'll have to find the photo for that one. I believe that design was sold to a magazine.
