FREE Crochet Heart Patterns – a fun Round-Up!

I love to crochet hearts of all shapes and sizes and thought it would be fun to put together this list of FREE crochet heart patterns from a variety of crochet designers and bloggers. You’ll see in their beautiful designs that there are many ways to create a heart with crochet stitches – you can work in the round, back and forth in rows and even a combination of the two! I am including several small projects that are quick to make and easy to give as a cute little gifts for Valentine’s Day or any time of the year you want to show someone you care.

Stitches Used in the FREE Crochet Heart Patterns

Many of the stitches used in these FREE crochet heart patterns are basic crochet stitches: chain, single crochet, slip stitch and double crochet. A few projects use some other basic stitches such as the treble crochet and double treble crochet to get various heights. I love that you can create so many crochet projects using just the basics. You’ll also see that several of the projects use creative combinations of these stitches to create a heart shape. There are many projects in this list that would work well for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. 🙂

For each of the FREE Crochet Heart Patterns you’ll see a photo and be able to read a little bit about the project. You’ll also see who designed the pattern, which yarn they used (with an affiliate link of where to purchase) and where you can find the FREE crochet pattern.

  1. I just saw the 20 heart free patterns and there were 2 that I would like to make. I am curious as to why you call them FREE what I need to purchase the PDF in order to get the pattern. I see the coaster pattern instructions spelled out on the email but I cannot copy it to actually use it – and I can’t crochet with my desktop and screen with me. So, is there actually a way to get the heart coaster pattern? I was able to get the cup cozy because it offered a way to pin it to Ravelry when I opened the pattern. But the coaster does not indicate I can do that.

    1. Hi! Thank you for visiting and checking out this Round-Up. Some bloggers have a setting on their computers that prevent people from copying images and texts but the content is still free to view. I would recommend copying down the pattern by hand and using it for personal use only. I know it may take a little while but it will be worth it if you like the pattern and will love the finished project. 🙂
