Crochet Heart Pattern Free ~ Updated

Here’s another quick (a little different) version to my fun, little crocheted applique heart pattern.


My example here, I have used a size G crochet hook and some acrylic yarn.


With this pattern, I began by crocheting the “magic loop” and making 12 HDC.


Slip stitch in the 1st HDC to join your loop making a circle.  You can pull a little bit on the magic loop tail but don’t pull it totally closed until you  have completed your heart.


Make another slip stitch (SL) in the next HDC stitch.  Chain 4 and crochet 2 treble crochets in that same space.

In 3rd HDC ~~ crochet 3 treble crochets

In 4th HDC ~~ crochet 1 half treble crochet then 1 double crochet

In 5th HDC ~~ crochet 2 double crochets

In 6th HDC ~~ crochet 2 double crochets


In 7th HDC ~~ crochet 1 half treble stitch, 1 treble stitch, 1 half treble stitch (this creates the bottom point of the heart)

In 8th HDC ~~ crochet 2 double crochets

In 9th HDC ~~ crochet 2 double crochets

In 10th HDC ~~ crochet 1 double crochet then 1 half treble crochet

In 11th HDC ~~ crochet 3 treble crochets

In 12th HDC ~~ crochet 2 treble crochets, chain 3 (this is one chain less than the beginning chain which will help create a better curve for the top of your heart), and 1 single crochet.


Cut your yarn and pull it all the way through the stitch leaving a yarn tail on the right side of your heart.  Now flip your heart to the wrong side and slipping your hook through the very first slip stitch that you made, pull your yarn tail to the back.


Now you want to take the tail from your magic loop and pull that tight to your liking.  Make a square knot with your two tails and weave in the ends.


What I love about this pattern is that it lends itself to almost any time of yarn and size hook.  I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do and send some pictures of what you have done with your hearts 🙂


Please remember that this is my pattern not for your use to reproduce or redistribute in any way!!  Crocheting your own hearts can be used in any way you want but it would be greatly appreciated if you could give me credit for the design ~ www.stitch4ever.com.    Thanks so much 🙂



Fun, Little Crochet Heart Applique

Who doesn’t like hearts!!!  They are one of my favorite designs and shapes to be creative with on many of my sewing, quilting or crochet/knitting projects.  So I came up with a cute pattern for a simple crochet heart applique, which I hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Approx. measurement -      2  1/4" x 2  1/4"

Approx. measurement –
2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″

The yarn I selected was a Bernat Satin, worsted weight 4, mainly because of the slight sheen and I had some left over in my stash.  I used a Size G hook for my samples too.

Stitches used:    sc (single crochet)     ch (chain)     tr (treble)     dc (double crochet)                                                                              sl (slip stitch)

I began my heart using the “magic loop” technique making 11 sc within the loop and then sl stitching through the first sc made.

Now make 3 ch stitches.  Complete 2 tr stitches in first sc stitch.  Make 3 tr stitches in 2nd sc stitch.  Now complete 1 tr and 1 dc in 3rd sc stitch.  Make 2 dc in each of the 4th and 5th sc stitches.   Make 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch within the 6th sc of your loop.

Complete 2 dc in each of the 7th and 8th sc stitches.  Make 1 dc, 1 tr in your 9th sc stitch.  Complete 3 tr stitches within your 10th sc stitch.  Make 2 tr, 3 ch stitches in your 11th sc stitch of your loop and end with a sc in that same stitch.  Now complete a sl stitch within your first sc stitch and fasten off.  Pull the tail very tight on your beginning “magic loop” to close your circle and then weave in your ends.

Now you have a fun, little crochet heart to do with as your “heart” desires!!  You can make a bunch of these very quickly and use them for many different projects.  They will fit nicely on top of my napkin ring design or as a center for the crochet ruffle too.   Add them to barrettes, headbands, hats or applique them to clothing and home decor projects.  Enjoy!!
