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.

List of Abbreviations:

yo= yarn over                       wrap yarn over hook
