Crochet Heart Patterns

Crochet Heart Patterns

I first started designing crochet projects for publication in 2012 – I can’t believe that was 10 years ago!

I have really enjoyed the creative outlet it provides. Some of my most favorite designs have been crochet heart patterns.

Over the 10 years of designing I have made several of these heart-themed projects and I thought it would be fun to share a list with you since Valentine’s Day is about 2 weeks away.

I’ve organized them into 4 categories:

Small and Quick

Home Décor

Jewelry and Other Accessories

Cute Animals

Just click on the photo or name of the project  to be taken to the pattern – ALL are available on-line either as a FREE blog post or an instant digital download so you can get started on making one today!

Please note many of the links in this post are affiliate links – Thank you for your support! It is much appreciated 🙂

Love to Read Bookmark

This lacy heart works up quickly with Size 10 cotton crochet thread.  It is actually 2 heart motifs joined together to create a little pocket that slips over the corner of a book – perfect gift for anyone you know who loves to read!

Celtic Knot Heart

With basic stitches and a small amount of Size 3 yarn you can create this unique heart – This is a FREE pattern and includes a video tutorial showing you how to weave the Celtic Knot using the included diagram.

Easy Heart Flower

This is one of my newest designs here on the blog even though I first put it together years ago!  In just 4 rounds you can complete this project and it’s made even easier by watching the video tutorial that comes with it.

Cake Toppers and Guest Lapel Hearts

These projects were created for a special wedding pattern bundle but can be used for a variety of occasions and gifts. The hearts are made with lacy stitches and Size 3 cotton crochet thread.  When you purchase the pattern, you’ll get a bunch of flower patterns with it.

Home Décor

Celtic Heart Wall Art

I have a couple of these heart projects hanging up in my house all year round.  I love how the knot looks more complicated than it really is.  But if you do get confused, no need to worry because I include 2 step-by-step video tutorials that are only available for those who purchase the pattern.

Celtic Heart Garland

Don’t you just love red and white together?

This project is created from 2 FREE patterns you can find on this blog with some beads thrown in! You can see 2 versions of this garland and a list of all the supplies you need on this page here.

Woven Heart Basket

Baskets full of treats and goodies are always fun to receive (and give) on holidays. Now you can use this pattern to create a unique container for your gift for that special someone.  Good news – the entire project uses the same stitch and the weaving is much easier than it looks.

Heart Warming Blanket

This blanket is a clever version of the traditional granny square.  By using color changes in certain areas you can create the heart shape inside a square.

Jewelry and Other Accessories

Celtic Heart Wristlet

This cute wristlet is crocheted with Size 3 cotton crochet thread and simple stitches.  This Celtic Knot is easy to weave especially with the diagram that’s included. It’s the perfect little bag for all your essentials.

Celtic Motherhood Necklace

This necklace features a decorative knot of 2 intertwining hearts symbolizing the special connection a mother has with her child.  This project is crocheted with embroidery thread and basic stitches – easy but so elegant and eye-catching!

Easy Heart Necklace

Have you ever crocheted jewelry before? If not, then this necklace is the perfect first project for you! It uses all beginner stitches and comes with a step-by-step knot weaving video tutorial.

Celtic Heart Bun Cover

The Celtic Knot Heart is transformed into a lacy bun cover and would make a good gift for a little girl who loves ballet.

The Beary Cute Cord Buddy and Mr. Hedgehug

Each of these little stuffies is holding a heart that adds to their cuteness! The bear is a fun companion that helps you keep your cord organized and Mr. Hedgehug is so soft you’ll want to give him a hug.

All use simple stitches and basic amigurimi techniques.

Love You Teddy and Lady Lovebug

Who doesn’t love teddy bears? This teddy wears his heart on his chest and will be an irresistable gift for a child. The heart is crocheted in a granny square style. The Love You Teddy pattern is found inside the Feb. 2016 issue of Crochet World which you can purchase as an instant digital download here.

The Lady Lovebug has a lot of personality and her dots are all mini-hearts! She can sit up on a desk or lay on her belly on your pillow. This pattern is found inside the Oct. 2013 issue of Crochet World which you can purchase as an instant digital download here.

17 Patterns Total!

So, there you have 17 heart patterns! I hope you enjoyed looking over this list and found at least one project you would like to make. (Don’t forget to add the image below to your Pinterest boards so you remember where you found this round-up)
