Crochet Heart Triangle Pattern – Free Crochet Pattern

A sweet crochet heart triangle pattern that’s perfect to make a bunting for a girl’s room, Valentine’s Day, or even a baby’s room! This was done as part of a crochet-a-long I had on the blog, where we made four Lacy Granny Triangles and eight simple Crochet Hearts and combined them all with this pattern to make a bunting for Valentine’s Day.

Copyright ©2014 by Sara of My Merry Messy Life. See my Terms of Use to know how to use this pattern.

Abbreviations

  • CH = chain
  • DC = double crochet
  • SL ST = slip stitch
  • SP = space
  • BLO = back loop only
  • SC = single crochet

Materials

  • Hook: H
  • Worsted weight yarn (I used Sugar’n Cream in cotton, however I actually suggest using acrylic or an acrylic blend because it’s more stretchy and the pattern will look cleaner. Cotton does not stretch back to it’s original shape).

The Pattern

Round 1

  • Taking one of the hearts, work a CH 3 at the bottom of it, in the point, between the 2 DC’s of the heart
  • 1 DC in each of the next 6 sp’s BLO
  • Work a corner in the next space {2 DC, CH 3, 2 DC}
  • 1 DC in the next sp BLO
  • 2 DC in the next sp BLO
  • SK the next 2 sp’s  (where heart dips down, the SC’s)
  • 2 DC in the next sp
  • 1 DC in the next sp
  • Work a corner in the next space {2 DC, CH 3, 2 DC}
  • (Last side) 1 DC in each of the next 7 sp’s BLO
  • DC again in the same sp
  • CH 3
  • DC in the first sp of the round BLO
  • SL ST to the top of the first CH 3
  • Fasten off or continuing working below with the same color (it is different if keeping the same color)

Round 2 – if changing colors

  • SL ST & CH 3 at the bottom of the triangle (at the point of the heart)
  • 2 DC in same sp as CH 3 BLO
  • 1 DC in each of the next 10 sp’s
  • Work a corner in the next space {3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC}
  • (Top) 1 DC in ea of the next 10 sp’s BLO
  • Work a corner in the next space {3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC}
  • (Side) 1 DC in ea of the next 10 sp’s BLO
  • In that same last sp, 2 more DC’s BLO
  • CH 3, SL ST to the top of the first CH 3
  • Fasten off, and you’re done!

Round 2 – if keeping the same color (Thank You to Autumn from Season Girl Stitches who figured this out to help you all! I have not tried this yet, so I’m not sure how it works, but her work is beautiful, so I’m trusting her advice.)

  • CH 3
  • 1 DC in each of the next 8 sp’s BLO
  • Work a corner  {3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC}
  • 1 DC in each of the next 10 sp’s BLO
  • Work a corner  {3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC}
  • 1 DC in each of the next 9 sp’s BLO
  • 2 DC, ch 3, 2 DC in CH 3 space
  • 1 DC in same space as starting CH 3 BLO
  • SL ST to the top of the starting CH 3

Starting at the bottom of the heart, in between the two double crochets, work a chain 3. Then, in the back spaces only (BLO), work 1 double crochet in each space of the side, 6 total. Then, we work on the corner. Work 2 double crochet in the next space (still back loop only), chain 3, then work 2 more double crochets all in the same space.

Now working at the top of the heart, we work 1 double crochet in the next space. Then, two double crochets in the next space. Skip the space where the heart dips down, or you could also work 1 double crochet in that space for a different look. Then, work 2 double crochet in the next space, and 1 double crochet in the last space of the top.

Now we’re ready to work the third corner. It’s the same as the second – 2 double crochet, chain 3, 2 double crochet all in the chain 3 space of the corner below. Then, we work the last side. Work 1 double crochet in each space below, back loop only (BLO), 7 total.

To finish off the first round, work another double crochet in that same last space, then chain 3, and work a double crochet in the very first space where you started the round. Fasten off and cut the yarn.

  1. nicole marden says:

    Are we using the hearts with, or without the tails?

  2. I think when you say “space” you actually mean “stitch”–is that right? The space would be BETWEEN the double crochets from the previous round. As far as I know, you can only do BLO into a stitch, not a space. 🙂

  3. Sorry, another question: just to clarify, the BLOs are only on the sides? The other dcs (such as on the top) are not BLO? I know it doesn’t say BLO anywhere else in the pattern, but I think it looks like there are a few BLO (but I’m pretty new to this and I may be interpreting the pic wrong). Sorry for all the questions!

  4. Did I miss where you told how many of each square to make? I’m assuming there are supposed to a certain number of heart granny’s and lacy granny’s.

  5. Well, I went by the picture and did mine with the hearts that still had the tail! Sigh……
