Here is an easy crochet heart pattern for Valentine’s Day! This is a great pattern if you want to perfect your magic circle skills. I have included some hints that might be helpful if you are new to crocheting. I hope you enjoy this free pattern.
Sweet Heart Crochet Pattern
Skill Level: Easy
Finished Size: Width 1 ¼ inches Height 1 inch
Yarn: Lion Brand Yarn “Bonbons” in Beach
Hook: 3.5mm E hook
Notions: Yarn Needle
- There is just one round in this pattern
- After you make your magic circle make sure you secure it with a very tight slip stitch, then chain 3
- All of your stitches are worked into your magic circle
- I keep my magic circle small, about the size of my pointer finger
- It helps to push your stitches together after you do a few and keep your stitches tight and close together
- After your last ch3, I start to close my magic circle, by pulling my starting yarn, just around 80% and you will see the heart shape start to form, then you do your last slip stitch into the center of your magic circle
- Now it is time to finish closing your magic circle, the last 20%, by pulling the starting yarn tight and now you will see the complete heart shape form
- Now finish off, to do this, yarn over, pull your yarn through, cut the yarn and weave in both ends.
- To shape the heart, I flatten out the lobes and push together and pull a little on the bottom point.
