Heart Crochet Pattern

Crocheted Hearts are not just for Valentine’s Day!

You might have seen this crochet pattern before. It has over 150,000 views in my online (Flickr) album, has been featured on many Blogs and is pinned all over Pinterest.

For Lettuce Craft I have revised the pattern and adapted it for US, UK and NL crocheters.

PS: Feel free to use this pattern any way you like!
Commercial use is fine with me too.
Just don’t present or sell the pattern as your own.

That is lovely! I’m about to send a gift, this will make a nice addition. Perhaps stuffed with lavender… a friend made me a lavender knit heart, very different pattern but such a sweet item. After receiving it as a gift, it’s great for closet or drawer!
Thank you for sharing your pattern :slight_smile:

I am always looking for nice heart patterns. I like how this one is made and it looks very finished. You also gave some good ideas on how to use it as a small gift…I have some sparkly yarn that never seems to get reduced!

Thanks for sharing! It is lovely and simple!

Thanks for writing it down in 3 languages! I always struggle with written crochet patterns but I think I should be able to figure this out.

Thanks, everyone! I’m glad you like my pattern.
Let’s make the world a little prettier with even more crocheted hearts!

I made one! I didn’t have enough leftover yarn to do the single crochet around so I just whip stitched it closed…it was very fast and easy! Thanks! It will join my collection of hearts and might go to someone who needs a bit of love down the road!

I rewrote the round parts of the heart. I hope that part of the pattern is clearer now. If not, please let me know.

3 languages!?! That in itself is impressive! I love your little heart and adding a bit of whimsy to a package or present is perfect!

very clear! I am going to do some more…I love the idea of putting a heart on hostess gifts now that there is some hope we can get together with friends once again! Hearts would make a nice touch to the wine bottles and even some baskets of food or jars of homemade jellies!

Thank you!

Well… two languages. But the US and the UK use their crochet terms differently (US single crochet = UK double crochet) and that can be confusing.

In my book that’s a whole different language! Lol! Your pics are wonderful by the way
