These little hearts are adorable and super easy to make! This is a beginner friendly project that’s great for using scraps of yarn.
- Turquoise Red Heart Yarn(or any color you want)
- G or 4.0 mm hook
- Yarn needle
I suggest using light weight (3) or worsted weight (4) yarns for this project.
- Sl St = slip stitch
- Ch = chain
- Tc = treble crochet
- Dc = double crochet
- Mc = magic circle
Step 1. In a Mc ch 3.
Step 2. Make 3 Tc.
Step 3. Make 4 Dc.
Step 4. Ch 1, Tc 1, Ch 1.
Step 5. Make 4 Dc.
Step 6. Make 3 Tc.
Step 7. Ch 3 and sl st into the mc.
Step 8. Take your end from the mc and weave it with a needle through all the center stitches.
Then finish off the end of your work and make a tight knot with both of ends.
Step 9. Weave in both ends and snip the extra yarn.
That’s your heart, but here’s some opinions and what to do with them!
What to do with it?
Here are some suggestions:
- Sew it onto something like a hat or a bag.
- Make a bunch of them and fill a small jar to give to a loved one.
- Attach it to a Valentine.
- Attach it to a tag.
- Make it into a bookmark.
If you decide to make a bookmark it’s better to decide this first so you can give yourself a nice long tail. Take both your ends make a nice tight knot. Take your long ends, make a knot 2 inches from the ends, and thread a few beads up to the knot. Knot the other side so they can’t shift.
- Make it into a necklace
Similarly to the bookmark, give yourself nice long tails that give you the length you desire for you necklace. Take both of your ends and make a nice tight knot. Then make a knot about an inch from the loose yarn ends.
The sky is the limit with these little guys. I hope you like making them as much as I did!
What are you going to do with these? Let me know and happy heart making!
