Crochet Allllll the Hearts With Our Free Pattern!

Move over, chocolate. We're all about the crochet hearts this Valentine's Day. Whip up a bunch using scrap yarn, or just make one for that very special someone. (And then maybe attach it to some chocolate.)

Crochet Heart Pattern

Level: Advanced-Beginner

What You Need

Pro Tip

This is a perfect project for yarn scraps! You only need a little bit, and you can really use anything. Case in point: we worked up a version in both fingering and bulky weights, and they both look amazing. As long as you match your hook size to your yarn weight, the sky's the limit here.


Gauge is not important, so give yourself a break!

Finished Size

Your finished heart will vary in size depending on the yarn/hook combo you decide to use. Experiment and have fun!


  • Ch - chain
  • Dc - double crochet

Stitch Refresher
Now, start building on your chains with the single crochet stitch. Salena shows you how to work into the chain, turn your row and examine the fabric to help you gain an understanding of the swatch you're working.
Ready to tackle your next stitch? Building on the stitches from previous lessons, work a practice swatch to learn about placement and get familiar with the fabric you're creating.
Next up, the half double crochet stitch! Similar to the single crochet, work this slightly longer stitch together into a starting chain, then turn the row.
Salena guides you through the last foundation stitch, and tallest one yet: the triple crochet. Work a sample swatch to learn about placement and get familiar with the fabric you're creating.

Share the Love

Have more hearts than you know what to do with? We've got ideas!

  • Be mine: Attach a sweet note to your heart and give it as a valentine.
  • Fill it with gifts: Crochet two identical hearts, then use a yarn needle to seam around the bottom of the heart. Leave the top open so you can tuck in fun valentine surprises inside like candy, lip balm, or another tiny gift.
  • Wear it on your sleeve: Glue or sew a pinback to your heart, then pin it to your sweater to add a little bit of V-Day love to your outfit.
  • Make a garland: String the hearts on a long strand of yarn, or chain a long strand with your crochet hook for something sturdier. Sew or thread the hearts onto the long strand, then hang it somewhere awesome.
  • Yarn bomb it: Tie long strands of yarn to three or four sections of the heart, then tie the heart to a chain-link fence. It’s sure to make passersby smile!
