This simple crochet heart first appeared in Inside Crochet in 2012. Designed as a lavender sachet, I have modified it in many ways since then. Made in dk yarn it looks very sweet hung on a coat hanger. Make a single heart in aran weight and stitch to a cushion or jumper for a quick, fun applique. I have put the pattern up for sale on Etsy today.
Also on Etsy you’ll find a pattern for a smaller heart key ring or brooch, which uses the same principle of simple increasing and decreasing. Over the years I’ve experimented with lots of different crochet hearts, but this remains my favourite. If you’d like a free copy of this pattern, like, share or leave a comment by midnight tonight and I’ll choose three people at random and email you a free copy first thing tomorrow.*
