Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week! Let’s jump right in to the pattern for today.
It’s a straightforward one that’s great for beginners. You can whip up this adorable little heart in less than an hour for that special someone or to decorate just about anything!
I loved them so much I added them to the wreath on my door. How cute is that?!

Caron Simply Soft in Watermelon, Strawberry, Lime, Grape, and Sunshine
Optional: 6mm safety eyes/Scraps of black yarn
Keychain and jump ring
Sl st: slip stitch
Sc: single crochet
Notes before Starting:
*This pattern is written in U.S. terms.
*This project is worked in rows.
*Your total stitch count will be in parentheses at the end of every row. This will help you to keep count of your stitches and make sure the finished product looks right. Chains and Slip Stitches do not count as stitches.
Row 1: Ch 9, Sc in 2nd ch from hook, Sc in remaining 7 ch. Ch 1 and turn (8)
Rows 2-3: Sc in each sc, ch 1 and turn (8)
Row 4: Sc in next 4 Sc. Ch 1 and turn (4)
Rows 5-7: Sc in each sc (4) Continue Sc around outside of the entire heart. When you get to the bottom point of the heart make a (Sc, ch 2, sc) in the same bottom Sc. When you reach the valley of the top of the heart, make a Sl st in the lowest part. Continue crocheting around the heart and Sl st in the beginning Sc.
Your first panel is complete! Finish Off and weave in ends. Make a second panel and Do Not Finish Off! Line up both of your panels with Panel 2 on the bottom. Chain 1 and push your hook through both panels. Crochet around both panels.
When you get to bottom point of the Heart make a (Sc, ch 2, sc) in the Ch 2 space that you made when you Sc around the outside of the panels the first time. Stop about 1 inch from your starting point and stuff the heart.
When you reach the center valley on the top of the heart, Sl st into the previous Sl st space to keep the definition of the heart. Continue crocheting around and Sl st into the starting Sc. Finish Off and weave in all ends.
Optional: Give your little heart some character by stitching two little eyes and a mouth across the front.
These adorable little hearts are also great as keychains. Instead of weaving in your last end, use it to stitch tightly around a jump ring. Then simply attach your heart to a keychain. Easy peasy!
Get crafty and have an awesome day!
