Valentine’s day heart freebie
Posted January 17, 2014on:
Last month I had published a post about heart ornaments I had crocheted for a friend of mine. I had made a promise that I would publish the pattern on my blog by the time Valentine’s day would be just around the corner, so here it is, my Valentine’s Heart pattern. It is very easy and as usual, doesn’t take long to make. Enjoy!
The heart is about 3 1/2 inches. It is decorated with a ribbon and a rose, but it can be used as a base for any kind of decoration.
You will need:
– Pink yarn (I recommend Caron Simply Soft, or similar)
– 2.75mm hook
– Polyester fiberfill for stuffing
– Yarn needle
– Pink ribbon
– Fabric red rose (I found mine at JoAnn, it comes in a package with different colors)
– Glue gun, or fabric glue
rnd = round
sc = single crochet
inc = increase
dec = decrease
st st = slip stich
Buns, (make 2):
With pink yarn or color of your choice, make a magic ring
Rnd 1: 5 sc in center of the ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
Rnd 4: [2 sc, inc] 5 times (20)
Rnd 5: [3 sc, inc] 5 times (25)
Rnd 6 to 7: sc in each st around (25)
Do not cut the thread from the yarn when you finish the second bun, you will slip stitch with the first bun.
Attach the two buns together with 4 sl st. The row start at the next stitch.
Rnd 1: sc in each st around (42)
Put a stitch marker at last stitch to mark the end of the row.
Rnd 2: 7 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 14 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 9 sc (38)
Rnd 3: sc in each st around (38)
Rnd 4: 6 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 13 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 7 sc (34)
Rnd 5: sc in each st around (34)
Rnd 6: 6 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 11 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec, 5 sc (30)
Rnd 7: sc in each st around (30)
Rnd 8: 6 sc, dec, 1 sc, dec, 10 sc, dec, 1 sc, dec, 2 sc, dec (25)
Start stuffing, and continue along the way.
Rnd 9: [3 sc, dec] 5 times (20)
rnd 10: sc in each st around (20)
Rnd 11: [2 sc, dec] 5 times (15)
Rnd 12: sc in each st around (15)
Rnd 13: [1 sc, dec] 5 times (10)
Rnd 14: dec 5 times (5)
Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing. With a yarn needle, close the hole by inserting the thread in the remaining stitches.
– Option 1: Cut a piece of pink ribbon, make a bow and glue to the heart.
– Option 2: Insert the ribbon between to stitches of the heart using a yarn needle, then make the bow.
– Glue the flower on the ribbon.
Voila! I hope you enjoyed this pattern, let me know if you have any questions, or if you like this pattern. My next post will be about different ideas to decorate a heart, using the same pattern.
