Heart applique

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.


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!
