free pattern: love hearts

In plenty of time for Valentine’s Day, I have a new crochet pattern to share today: Love Hearts! String them into a garland, add a pin back to make a cute brooch, or fill a bowl with pretty hearts for Valentine’s Day decorating.

This is a clever little pattern to make sweet hearts in three sizes – each heart builds on the pattern of the previous heart. You can also make a bonus puffy heart to give a total of 4 different designs in this one pattern:

A: Small Heart; B: Medium Heart; C: Large Heart; D: Puffy Heart

It’s a fun pattern; although it’s worked in the round, it’s the opposite of amigurumi, as you’ll use a variety of crochet stitches to form the heart shape. And unlike other hearts I’ve seen, this one has no chains between the stitches, so it forms a nice solid shape. Once you get the hang of the pattern you’ll be able to whip up dozens of hearts in no time at all!

The Love Hearts crochet pattern is free for you to use. If you’d like to thank me with a donation, you’ll get a handy printable PDF version of the pattern as a thank you 🙂

    Thankyou clever lady!
    Your hearts are definitely the easiest and classiest online.
    I always want a very professional looking result with NO cheap,rough,home-made appearance and your pattern is superb!!!
    In wool or cotton I had excellent results. Thankyou again.x

    I just fell on your site blog, and absolutely love these little hearts! I would love to use them on a preemie hat pattern- would it be OK if I link back to your pattern in my blog?

    • June said

      Kaelyn, as long as you only post the link to my pattern (so that people can click through to here to see my heart pattern) and don’t copy my entire pattern into your pattern, that’s absolutely fine with me! I’d love to see your preemie hats with my hearts – send me a link when you’ve made one 🙂

    I really love the garland idea! Every time I’ve tried to crochet thusfar I’ve utterly failed; perhaps it’s time to try again.

    • June said

      Yes, yes, yes! You absolutely should try again 🙂

    Love the love hearts! Really lovely. xx

    lol, I wish I’d known about this yesterday, I did my own crocheted heart yesterday and while it turned out okay (it is at least recognizable as a heart shape 😉 ) it doesn’t look anywhere as nice as these! Ah well, too late now…maybe next time… 🙂 (and I think they’re totally awesome, if that wasn’t clear from what I said)
