Free Crochet Pattern...One Round Hearts!



Using minuscule amounts of yarn, these sweet little hearts work up super fast in just one round! Make up a few for a garland or create a shower of them for a window. Tuck one or two in a loved one's lunch or jacket pocket. A fabulous beginner project to learn an array of stitches!

Mix it up with tiny stars!

  • 5.0mm (H) hook 
  • Cheerful yarn in color(s) of your choice (I used worsted weight) 
  • Tapestry needle 
Abbreviations: 
  • ch: Chain 
  • sl st: Slip Stitch 
  • sc: Single Crochet 
  • dc: Double Crochet

Round 1 (work all stitches into the ring): dc, tr, dc, sl st, dc, tr, dc, sc, sc, sc, tr, sc, sc, sc, join to close heart and fasten off.
(Here is round 1 written in column format so that you won't lose your place; I like to use a ruler to mark my spot:

  2. where are you doing these 14 stitches you have listed? There's only a chain 4.

    Where do you join?

  3. The hearts are made in the round, so the chain 4 is joined to make a circle and then round 1 of the instructions are done through the middle of the circle, similar to the way a granny square is constructed. Hope that helps!

  7. I'm trying to make the heart earrings and I'm sort of a beginner at crochet. I made this but it turned into an "8" figure and not a heart lol! Is there any way that you could make a video for this pattern? Or if you have any tips on how to master it? Thanks so much!!

  10. Thank you so much for this lovely pattern! As a crochet novice it's perfect for me. I'm getting married in a barn in May and am going to make some of the wreaths to hang on the beams :)

  11. Your little hearts were a huge hit at a Valentine party I went to. I put a few on a gift package and the ladies all loved them! They want me to make some shamrock pins for them. Do you have a pattern?

  12. I made a bunch of the chunky hearts with 2 strands of a fluffy red and 1 strand of metallic sparkle. I added pins to the backs and they made wonderful accents for the chemo hats we're knitting. I love your single round patterns. I can make great pins out of them for our hats too. Doing the flowers in cheery colors makes them so much fun and they can be mixed and matched on hats when the wearer wants a change. Thanks for some great patterns.
