Crochet Hearts for Valentine’s Day


crochet hearts for Valentine's Day

Back in December in the post titled “Last Christmas Ornament of the Year”, I shared a picture of a small crochet heart that I made. I didn’t have the pattern sketched back then, but I promised my readers to share it before Valentine’s Day.

I loved my little ornament even more in red (and I now contemplate trying it in pink). I used pearl cotton thread, and the heart came out about 3 inches tall and 2.75 inches wide.

The finished heart itself was quite simple, but adding a ribbon made a lovely detail and helped shape the heart a bit.

The symbol chart I sketched is shown below. I gladly share it with anyone who would like to try crocheting this ornament. I want to cordially thank Kim from SymbolCrochet Yahoo group for testing my pattern and making valuable suggestions. Thank you, Kim!

  5. Your hearts are very pretty but my brain doesn't seem to translate symbol patterns. If it did, then I would be able to figure out all the Japanese pattern books that are sold here in the one and only craft store around. Best wishes to you, Tammy

  10. Olga, your red hearts are so beautiful. I can not crochet but I buy crocheted table cloths, doilies and other beauties at estate sales for myself. You are so talented and I enjoy looking at your blog.

  14. I want to thank you so much for sharing this beautiful pattern of the crocheted hearts, I'm going to try this pattern out for Valentine's Day. I love the lacy look to them and the ribbon really finishes them off perfectly!

    I hope that I will manage to follow the chart. I am out of practice as most patterns these days seem to be written ones!

    Keep up your good work. You have a gift!

    1. Just now noticed your comment.
      You start the heart with a ring of chain 5. Then chain 3 and dc 5 in the ring. Turn.
