The term magic number or magic constant refers to the anti-pattern of using numbers directly in source code. This has been referred to as breaking one of the oldest rules of programming, dating back to the COBOL, FORTRAN and PL/1 manuals of the 1960s. The use of unnamed magic numbers in code obscures the developers' intent in choosing that number, increases opportunities for subtle errors (e.g. is every digit correct in 3.14159265358979323846 and is this equal to 3.14159?) and makes it more difficult for the program to be adapted and extended in the future. Replacing all significant magic numbers with named constants (also called explanatory variables) makes programs easier to read, understand and maintain.
Also known as "magic e" syllable patterns, VCe syllables contain long vowels spelled with a single letter, followed by a single consonant, and a silent e. Examples of VCe syllables are found in wake, whale, while, yoke, yore, rude, and hare. Every long vowel can be spelled with a VCe pattern, although spelling "long e" with VCe is unusual.
This crochet heart pattern is an advanced beginner project, since it calls for some increases and a variety of different crochet stitches: single crochet, half-double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet, and slip stitches. The heart pattern starts with a magic ring, and is worked in rounds. 2b1af7f3a8
