Pattern for Crocheted Heart (Patroon voor Gehaakt Hart)

Pattern for Crocheted Heart

 

You’ll need:

- yarn (any yarn will do, in this example I used a 100% acrylic yarn)

- crochet hook (size that matches your yarn)

- a little stuffing material

 

Stitches:

Ch = US chain stitch (Dutch: losse)

SC = US single crochet (UK: double crochet, Dutch: vaste)

 

Heart (make two):

 

SC in rows. Always make a Ch to turn (not mentioned in the pattern).

- 1 Ch, turn (yes, that means 2 Ch)

- 2 SC in first stitch, 1 SC, (= 3 stitches), turn

- 2 SC in first stitch, 2 SC (= 4 stitches), turn

- 2 SC in first stitch, 3 SC (= 5 stitches), turn

continue SC in rows (increase 1 SC in the first stitch of every row) untill you have 20 stitches, turn

 

first round part of the heart:

- 10 SC, turn

- SC, crochet the first two stitches (1,2) and the last two stitches (9,10) together (= 8 stitches)

- SC, crochet the first two stitches (1,2) and the last two stitches (7,8) together (= 6 stitches)

- SC, crochet the first two stitches (1,2) and the last two stitches (5,6) together (= 4 stitches)

- SC, crochet the first two stitches (1,2) and the last two stitches (3,4) together (= 2 stitches)

fasten off

 

second round part of the heart:

- re-attach in the 11th stitch of the 20 stitches row (right next to the first round part)

- 10 SC, turn

- continue like first round part

- weave in all ends

 

Crochet both hearts together in SC. Leave a small opening in one of the straight sides.

Lightly stuff the heart. Close the opening by crocheting more SC.

Weave in ends.

 

Have fun!

 

PS: feel free to use this pattern any way you like.

Commercial use is fine with me too, as long as you don't present it as your own design.

 

PPS: for those lacking the crochet skills to make these hearts, follow the website link in my profile.
