Simple Crochet Heart – Free Crochet Pattern

This little crochet heart is quick and easy to make, perfect for your Valentine’s Day projects or anytime you need to add a touch of sweetness!

Free Crochet Pattern for a Sweet Little Heart

This is also part of a crochet-a-long I held on the blog where we made a Valentine’s bunting decoration.  You can start with the first free crochet pattern – the lacy granny triangle, then the crochet heart triangle, and then a post on how to put it all together.

Simple Crochet Heart Pattern

Materials

  • 1 ounce or less of worsted weight yarn in colors that coordinate with your lacy granny triangles
  • Hook: H

Abbreviations

  • CH = chain
  • SL ST = slip stitch
  • SC = single crochet
  • HDC = half double crochet
  • DC = double crochet

Round 1

  • CH 3, SL ST to form a ring
  • CH 1 (counts as first SC)
  • 10 DC in ring, 1 SC in ring
  • SL ST to CH 1 to close ring

Round 2

  • Skip two stitches from round 1 (or just 1 space)
  • In that second space, work 3 DC’s
  • Next space, 1 DC, 1 HDC
  • Next space, 3 SC
  • Next space, 1 HDC, 1 DC
  • Next space, 1 DC, 1 HDC
  • Next space, 3 SC
  • Next space, 1 HDC, 1 DC
  • Next space, 3 DC’s
  • SL ST in next space
  • SL ST in the middle of the next DC post
  • SL ST to fasten off the heart and cut the tail. Done!

Photo Tutorial

Step 1: work a magic ring, or chain 3 and slip stitch to close the ring. Then, chain 1 (this counts as your first single crochet stitch) into the middle of the ring. Then, work 9 double crochets through the middle of the ring. The last stitch is a single crochet. Then join the circle with a slip stitch to the top of the chain 1. (The picture below has one mistake – that last stitch in the circle that is supposed to be a single crochet is actually a double crochet – made a mistake during the photo shoot. Had to make note of that for your experts out there with trained eyes!)

Step 2: To start round two, we will not work any chains. Instead, skip 2 double crochets (or just one stitch space) from the first round and in the next space, work 3 double crochets.
