With Valentine’s Day coming up, is there a better time to try to make a heart than now?

Let your imagination guide you and you'll find all kinds of uses for these crocheted hearts. They make wonderful pendants or can be used for earring drops. Use them to make lovely pins, key chains, cell phone or bag charms. Hang on your pet’s collar or your Christmas tree... no matter what you use them for, they look great.

Materials used

- crochet hook No.1 (2,25 mm)
- red cotton yarn
- polyfil to stuff
- tapestry needle and scissors


sc - single crochet
sl st - slip stitch
sc2tog - single crochet decrease (work 2 sc together)
st(s) - stitch(es)
rd - round

Stitches and crochet techniques used

Slip stitch
Insert hook in next st, yarn over and draw through all loops.

Single crochet
Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop (2 loops on hook), yarn over, draw through both loops on hook.

Single Crochet Decrease (Sc2tog)
Insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, (two loops on hook), insert hook in next stitch, draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops.

Magic adjustable ring
First make a loop with your yarn leaving 3" long tail. Insert hook in center of loop made, yarn over and draw up loop. Yarn over, pull through to make your first chain. (Do not count this as your first sc) Continue to crochet over the loop and the yarn tail until you have the required number of scs for your first round. For example, if the pattern calls for 5 scs, then sc 5 times into the ring. (Insert hook into the center of the ring and draw up loop, yarn over and draw through both loops.) When finished, pull the tail to close the ring.

The Heart

Beginning at the top of the heart, with magic ring:

Rd 1: Work 6 sc into the center of ring (6)
Rd 2: Work 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rd 3: (Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around (18)

Sl st in next st, cut yarn leaving 10” long tail and pull through last loop. You've just finished the first top half of the heart (Top A).

To make another top half repeat the rounds 1-3 as follows:

Rd 1 : Work 6 sc into the center of ring (6)
Rd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rd 3: (Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) around (18)

The second top half of the heart is finished (Top B). Do not cut yarn. (Image 01)

Rd 4 : Sc in next 9 sts of the Top B.

Merge the halves together: Insert hook into first stitch after sl st made on Top A and continue to make 1 sc in all 18 stitches. Insert hook back into the Top B and work 1 sc in next 9 sc. (One round completed with 36 sc) (Image 02)

With the tail from Top A close the gap between the two top halves. (Image 03 and 04)

Rd 5 : Sc around (36)

Rd 6 : (Sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog) around (30)
Rd 7: (Sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog) around (24)

Rd 8: (Sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog) around (18)

Rd 9: (Sc in next st, sc2tog) around (12)

Stuff! (Image 05) While stuffing make sure the tail you used to close the gap is not stuck inside, you'll need it later to pull tight and shape the heart.

Continue with “sc in next st, sc2tog” until you heave 5 sts left.

Cut yarn and pull it through thelast loop. Now pull the Top A tail tight to shape the heart and hide the tail inside with tapestry needle.

With a tapestry needle, weave the tail through the front loops of the remaining 5 stitches and pull it tight to close. Weave in yarn end!
