Crochet Love Heart - Free Pattern

Can you really believe that Valentine's Day is just around the corner?

I think the older I get the quicker the years run by but never the less, you can't crochet enough hearts, no matter what time of the year it is and this one is a treat!

This love heart is crocheted twice and then padded and sewn together.

You will need

- Some chunky/bulky weight yarn in cream (or any yarn of your choice)
- A 4mm crochet hook (or any hook suitable for your chosen yarn)
- A yarn needle
- Some toy stuffing but you can also stuff your heart with scraps of yarn.




Step 1
Crochet 10sc into a magic circle (you can watch a tutorial on that here if you like), pull to tighten and sl st to join - (10)

Step 2
2sc in ea st around - (20)

Step 3
*1sc in next st, 2sc in next st* repeat from * until end - (30)

Step 4
1dc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, 1tr in next 2 sts, 2tr in next st, 1dc in next st, 1sc in next st, sl st in next st, 1sc in next st, 1dc in next st, 2tr in next st, 1tr in next 2 sts, 2dc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 1sc in next st, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st, 1sc in next st, 1hdc in next st, 2dc in next st, sl st in next st regardless of round and fasten off.

Repeat the same instructions to make a second heart, now sew your two hearts together (how romantic) making sure to stuff your heart as you go. Hide your tails inside or use them to make a loop to hang your heart from. Why not also add some extra appliques such as the pink rose shown which you can pick up from your local cake decoration or craft store.
