These free crochet heart patterns are adorable and easy to make. Whether you’re new to crochet or a veteran, you can find crocheted hearts to suit any style or skill level. 

Here you’ll find hearts that can be stuffed, heart granny squares, coasters, and much more. There’s lots to love in this collecting of crochet heart patterns!

Why Crochet a Heart? 

A crocheted heart is an easy Valentine’s Day decoration or gift. It is also a great way to practice basic crochet stitches. The most basic crochet heart is worked up with just single crochet, double crochet, and half double crochet stitches and it can be done in just a few minutes. 

A heart is a symbol of caring, love, and friendship. Handmade crafts are one way to express your love, and a crocheted heart is a gift that’s sure to be cherished. 

They’re also just cheerful and fun to make, and it’s sure to make you smile when you use a heart-shaped hot pad, even if it’s not Valentine’s Day season. 

You can make them as applique motifs to decorate other projects, like sweaters, bags, and scarves. 

You can crochet a string of multiple hearts together to create a lovely and adorable heart garland. It would make a great decoration on the porch or over the fireplace. 

Another way of using crochet hearts is by making them into little accessories like keychains, earrings, necklaces, and bag charms. In fact, later in this blog post, you’ll see different easy heart patterns that are used to create these accessories. 

Supplies Needed to Crochet a Heart

You can use any weight or type of yarn that you like to crochet a heart, especially if it is just being used for decoration. Heart crochet projects are actually a great way to use leftover yarn from your stash. Imagine how cute a multicolored heart garland would be made with yarn from all your old projects? 

Check the pattern you are making for suggested yarn weight and material, but in most cases you can use different yarn. Just be aware that your heart will come out bigger or smaller if you use heavier or lighter-weight yarn than the pattern suggests. Many of these projects call for DK or worsted weight yarn, so you have a lot of options. 

Once you’ve decided on the yarn you want you use, you’ll need a crochet hook in the size suggested in your pattern or that corresponds to the weight of yarn you are using. Some patterns may suggest a smaller hook than you would normally use for that yarn to ensure that the stuffing doesn’t show between the stitches if you are stuffing the heart, for example.

You’ll also need the same basic supplies you’d need for any crochet project, such as a yarn needle for weaving in ends or sewing two heart shapes together, a stitch marker to mark the end of the round if you are working in the round, and a pair of scissors for trimming your yarn ends. 

If you are making a three-dimensional heart crochet pattern that will be stuffed, you will also need stuffing material. 

How Do You Crochet a Heart? 

Crocheting a heart is fun and easy to do. The most basic patterns start with a magic ring (magic circle) or a chain made into a circle. 

Working in rounds you typically progress through a series of single crochet, half double crochet, and double or treble crochet stitches to form the shape of the heart. It only takes a few rounds to make a small heart shape, so you can finish it in minutes.  

This collection of free heart crochet patterns features simple, tiny hearts and larger, more complicated patterns. If you need help understanding any of the patterns or want a refresher on the techniques involved, check out our Crochet Fundamentals course. It has short, easy to digest videos on everything you need to crochet hearts – or anything else! – with success.
