Crochet Heart Patterns

Some of my most favorite designs have been crochet heart patterns. I first started designing crochet projects for publication in 2012 – I can’t believe that was over 10 years ago! I have really enjoyed the creative outlet it provides.  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 coming up. And designing heart patterns never gets old because there are so many ways to crochet hearts.

4 Categories of Crochet Heart Patterns

Along with many ways to crochet hearts comes the ability to take the heart-shape and add it to almost any type of project. So, I’ve grouped this list into 4 different categories so it’s quick to pick out what you are looking for. You’ll see crochet heart patterns that are: “Small and Quick”, perfect for “Home Decor”, can be worn as “Jewelry and Other Accessories” and made into “Cute Animals”.

Info About Each of the Crochet Heart Patterns

With each of these crochet heart patterns you’ll read some info and see a photo of the project. 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!

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. I crocheted this super soft blanket with thick blanket yarn and a large hook.
