Easy Crochet Heart Pattern


There are a lot of crochet heart patterns out there but a lot of them work in round using a variety of different stitches and the "magic ring" which I know a lot of you struggle with. Fear not! This heart pattern is very simple, working solely in rows of single crochets. You could use them as an appliqué on a hat, scarf, for a hair clip, garland, gift topper, or sew two together and stuff lightly for a puffy heart!

Materials:
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in a variety of their pink colors. Did you know that Lion Brand Yarn has 85 different shades of pink yarn for you to choose from?! You can find them all HERE.
- Size H Crochet Hook
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Ch = Chain
SC = Single Crochet

Finished heart measures approx 2.5"x2". If you want a large heart, you can follow the heart "wing" pattern of my Crochet Love Bug.

Easy Hearts Pattern:
Chain 7, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 2-3: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 4: SC in first 3 stitches, ch 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 5-7: SC in each stitch across, ch1, turn (3 SC)
When you get to the lats row,  continue to SC around entire heart. When you get to bottom stitch (the one with the your slip knot) SC + Chain 1 + SC all in one stitch. Then when you get to the top "v" indent, slip stitch (instead of SC). Join, fasten off and weave in ends (or leave a long tail you are using it as an appliqué).




For a heart that you can crochet in rounds, HERE is a nice pattern by Kara at Petals to Picots.

  16. This is memorable, memorizable and clever. I've been making facecloths out of a bulky cotton and mailing them for Valentine's Day. It's so fun that the valentine is both decorative and useful. Thanks for sharing!
