Sending Love with Crochet Hearts

Hello Loves,

I have been hooking slowly but surely on Teagan's baby blanket. Maybe by the end of this week I will have a finished product to share. In the mean time, I am trying to be on top of things with holidays since Lauren is old enough to know what is going on and really enjoys holidays.

Target Valentine's Day Finds! 


Tomorrow is Lauren's Valentine's Day party in the two year old room at her pre-school. Bringing Valentines is optional but since I am on leave with Teagan, I have no excuse for not crafting up some loveliness. Last year I started making soaps with our honey and essential oils so I think we may be giving her teachers, the center director, and front desk gals some soaps with a pretty little heart Valentine. After checking out Pinterest (you know it's my FAV) I thought I should whip up some little crochet hearts.

Well, I was WRONG about the whipping up part. I tried two different patterns and my hearts looked pitiful. I know I am not great at following patterns but I really did follow them this time because I know the shaping of little hearts meant I couldn't miss a stitch or two. After the second failed attempt I decided to just wing it and make my own pattern. After two drafts, I think I have a heart I am happy with.

Crochet Heart, Free Pattern


Just in case you want to make some last minute hearts I wrote it down for you! I used Vanna's Choice yarn with an I/5.50MM hook

All stitches are the USA terms

Crochet Heart Pattern

Ch 4 connect to make a circle

Round 1 All stitches in the circle
Ch 3, 3 dc, 2 tr,  2 sc, 2 tr, 3 dc, sl into chain 3

Round 2

Sc ch 2, sc in same stitch (this is the bottom of the heart), sc in next 3 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, 1dc 1tr 2dc next stitch, sl in next two stitches, 2dc 1tr 1dc in next stitch, 2 hdc, sc next 3, sl and fasten off. 

Please note that I made this quickly and may have made mistakes. I made a second heart following the pattern before posting this and it turned out the same, so hopefully it works for you.

Happy Thursday!
