Heart applique

Posted on: February 5, 2016

Since we are coming close to Valentine’s day I decided to post a quick and easy tutorial for last minute Valentine’s day ideas. I am starting today with a heart applique that you can use for your crochet projects, or to follow the next two tutorials I am going to post in the next days. From heart applique to heart coasters, and from heart coaster to keychain. These will be really fun to make!

This heart applique will take you no time at all. I was able to make 5 in half an hour time. For this you will need a G/4mm hook, and some regular 4/worsted yarn of your choice.

Abbreviations:
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
tr = treble

Heart Pattern:
To start, make 2 st in a chain
Row 1: 2 sc in second stitch from hook (2)
ch 1, turn
Row 2: 2 sc in second stitch from hook, 2 sc in last stitch (4)
ch 1, turn
Row 3: 2 sc in second stitch from hook, 2 sc, 2 sc in last stitch (6)
ch 1, turn
Row 4: 2 sc in second stitch from hook, 4 sc, 2 sc in last stitch (8)
ch 1, turn
Row 5 to 6: sc in each stitch of the row (8)
ch 1, turn
Row 7: 3 sc, 2 sc in next stitch, 4 sc (9)
ch 1, turn
Row 8: 1 sc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 2 tr + 1 hdc in next stitch, 1 sl st, 1 hdc + 2 tr in next stitch, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1 sc (12)
Do not turn, continue to sc down the side. Make 1 sc, ch 1 and 1 sc in last st at the bottom, then continue to sc on the other side. Finish at the beginning or row 8 with a sl st (do not sc the top of the heart).

As easy as that, and so much fun. My next post will be to make a set of coasters with these appliques, perfect for a last minute Valentine’s day gift. Stay tune, and happy crocheting!

Very pretty but I’m on this round and there’s a stitch missing. Round 7 has 9 stiches, but this one we’re only crocheting into 8.

Row 8: 1 sc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 2 tr + 1 hdc in next stitch, 1 sl st, 1 hdc + 2 tr in next stitch, 1 tr, 1 sc (12)

Hello, and thank you for bringing it to my attention. I forgot to write the 1 double crochet before the last sc. So this is how it should be:
Row 8: 1 sc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 2 tr + 1 hdc in next stitch, 1 sl st, 1 hdc + 2 tr in next stitch, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1 sc (12)

I also corrected in in my post. Thank you and happy crocheting!

Awesome. I figured that’s what stitch was missing. I posted the heart on Instagram and mentioned your web page but couldn’t find your name to tag you there. Are you on Instagram? I also wanted to mention since I saw you glue googly eyes on one of your patterns (elephant) that i found some SEW ON googly eyes at Hobby Lobby last week. I don’t use those kinds of eyes often since most things I put eyes on are bigger stuffed amigurumi, but they are perfect for appliques and such. I’d never seen them before anywhere! Thanks for the patterns!

oh thanks! I do have an Instagram but I don’t use it specifically for my craft, even though I do put crochet pics every once in a while. I will have to go to Hobby Lobby, I have never seen any, and I would definitely buy some. Are they in the same isle as the googly eyes? That’s awesome and thanks for telling me about it. 🙂

Yes by the eyes. I got 10, 18 and 25 mm ones. And you’re very welcome!
