Making crochet hearts is so easy and fun. Most of these free crochet patterns are really quite small and manageable. Be warned, they can be quite addictive to make! It’s hard to stop with just one. Fun little projects are also great for a break in between larger projects. The best part is that you don’t need any special kind of yarn or very large amounts of yarn either. Just raid your stash!
1.Easy Crochet Hearts
Designer: Loops and Love Crochet
These cute little two-color hearts are only 3 inches wide! That makes them perfect for sewing onto a hat, scarf or blanket for an extra special touch. You could even glue these onto cardstock and make a homemade greeting card!
2. Easy Crochet Heart
Designer: Pretty Darn Adorable
Measuring 4 inches across, these monochrome hearts are a little bit bigger than the last ones we saw. I have some great news about this free crochet pattern – there’s also a free video tutorial for visual learners!
3. Easy Crochet Heart
Designer: Repeat Crafter Me
This really might be the easiest crochet heart ever. Rows of single crochet stitches create pleasing diagonal lines and a quick stitch around the edges of your work helps to round off the heart.
4. Heart Shaped Pillow
Designer: Lee Lee Knits
An adorable heart shaped pillow is such a special way to show someone you care. The facial features are so delicate and cute. It’s the perfect size for warm hugs. The best part is that it’s all just single crochet stitches. So easy!
5. Mini 3D Hearts
Designer: Esperansa y Ana Celia Rosas
How fun would it be to make one of these mini 3D hearts in every color of the rainbow? I’d say almost as much fun as opening a gift full of them! You could even stuff them with rice to make hand warmers.
6. I Heart Valentine Crochet
I love the look of this neon heart. Have you worked with t-shirt yarn before? It’s very thick and sturdy and it gives your stitches excellent definition. I think this would make a very nice table mat. What would you do with it?
7. Crochet Heart Baskets
Designer: My Poppet Makers
Here’s another t-shirt yarn pattern for you. These crochet heart baskets are so fun to make and they’re the perfect size for filling with treats. It’s the gift that keeps on giving because they also make for good storage for notions, coins, or small trinkets.
8. Mini Hearts Bunting Banner
Designer: The DIY Mommy
You can make this mini hearts bunting to decorate for Valentine’s day or to put in baby’s nursery. The hearts are super quick and simple to make and the colors are up to you. I love the rainbow theme as pictured but it would also look amazing in shades of pink and purple.
9. Crochet Heart
Designer: Everything Etsy
One round hearts are the quickest crochet hearts out there. You don’t even need to start with a magic circle. All you need to know is double and treble crochet. There are both a video tutorial and a written pattern for you to enjoy.
10. Chunky Crochet Hearts
Thick t-shirt yarn makes this chunky crochet hearts pattern fly by. These hearts aren’t even stuffed – the stitches just hold their shape very well. I think it would be fun to make a few of these and hang them up in the park for people to find.
11. Teeny Tiny Hearts
Designer: Attic 24
Teeny tiny hearts are so quick and easy! This is my favorite style of crochet pattern – a tutorial with a picture for every step so you don’t get lost. This is a great choice for visual learners who don’t have the patience for videos.
12. Crochet Christmas Hearts
Designer: Golden Lucy Crafts
Add some love and care to your Christmas tree with these christmas-colored hearts. Red, green and white are the perfect festive colors for the holidays. Fun novelty Christmas buttons with snowflakes and gingerbread men are also a nice touch!
13. Ombre Heart Coaster
Designer: LillaBjorn’s Crochet World
I love that I don’t have to buy a special yarn to make these ombre heart coasters! Grab your yarn scraps and pick out 5 shades to make an ombre effect. You could even string a few together to make a pretty heart bunting decoration.
14. Heart Balloon Pattern
What’s that in the sky? It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a beautiful crochet heart balloon. This crochet pattern is very similar to an amigurumi pattern. You’ll need a bit of stuffing as well as a bamboo stick. Or you could try making a pencil topper!
15. Valentine’s Day Crocheted Hearts
Designer: Between The Lines
These lovely 3D hearts are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or put in your pocket. The design on this one is really nice and it’s made all in one piece rather than having two separate bits for the heart bumps. Really lovely!
I believe in a thing called love! Crochet gifts are so thoughtful and fun to make too. There are so many fun things you can do with these little projects. Get creative with what you choose to do with your crochet hearts and also with what you pair with crochet hearts for a great gift!
