Hello, crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a delightful and easy project that’s perfect for beginners and seasoned crocheters alike – a charming crochet heart. This pattern requires just two stitches: double crochet and half double crochet, and I’ve also created a video tutorial for those who prefer visual learning.

Materials and Flexibility:

Feel free to choose any yarn and hook you have on hand. Remember, using thicker yarn and a larger hook will result in a larger heart, making this project a great way to use up leftover yarn.

Written Instructions for the Heart:

  1. Start with a chain of 3 (ch 3).
  2. In the first chain, work 4 double crochets (4 dc).
  3. Next, add 3 half double crochets (3 hdc).
  4. Make 1 double crochet (1 dc).
  5. Follow with another 3 half double crochets (3 hdc).
  6. Complete the round with 4 double crochets (4 dc).
  7. Chain 2, then make a slip stitch into the first chain of the beginning chain 3.
  8. To finish, tighten the beginning tail to close the heart.

This simple pattern creates a lovely heart shape and is an excellent project for beginners to practice their stitches.

Video Tutorial for Visual Learners:

For those who find it easier to follow along visually, I’ve recorded a step-by-step video tutorial. This tutorial will guide you through each step, ensuring your heart turns out just right.

Versatile Uses:

Your finished heart can be used in various ways. Attach it to a gift, create a garland, or use it as an appliqué. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, weddings, or just as a heartfelt gesture.

I can’t wait to see the beautiful hearts you create. Share them with me on Social Media and tag #LoopsOnlyCrochet. Let’s spread some joy and love with our crochet hooks!
