Great quick and easy pattern. Thanks
Those are the cutest. Thanks for sharing.
I teach teenage boys crochet, and I wanted them to make these hearts. Unfortunately, I forget the pattern, but as I did 16 of them earlier in the day, I went around and verbally taught them. Not all the boys were at the same speed, so I went around 6 boys many times, repeating the stitches they needed to do next. EAch boy produced a heart. It was a great teaching tool, going from chains to trebles, and incorporated all the stitches for them. Thank you for such a great project!
Thanks for sharing such a great patterns, Suzies.I love it a lot. Actually , I love all of your patterns. They're all so wonderful.I only can crochet.I wish I could knit so I wouldn't miss your knitting patterns. Your works really inspire me.I trully appriciate it. Hug. LoanTrang

I needed something to tie cellophane bags of valentine candy
closed, and I looked at your heart pin pattern, and a light bulb just
went on in my brain.
I made the heart from you instructions for your heart pin, but
I got creative and converted it into a double heart tie, to tie the
cellophane bag of candies closed. I crocheted the heart, then chained
20, and then crocheted another heart on the other end. The chain in
between is
just long enough to tie the cellophane bag closed and have the 2
hearts hanging down in front. They're adorable. I made 18 of these
bags of candy, with the heart ties, to take to work as valentines
gifts. The heart ties only took me about 5 minutes each to make.
Thank you for sharing your pattern for this heart pin.

Such an adorable heart-pattern! Just love it! On my blog I have publiced an swedish translation with a few adjustment at the final round. I made a ring and earrings to myself, I like it a lot!
Thank you so much for the pattern!!!
These are great. I have been looking for a little heart to attach to hats and scarves. These are perfect.

Hi Suzie,

thanks a lot for this tutorial!
I surfed the internet and tried several crocheted hearts..
Yours are the best!
I found a similar pattern in some old things that were given to me, Yours has an additional section for making the heart larger..I am going to put your link on my blog....thanks :O)
Awesome pattern! I'm making a bunch for today....National Yarn Bombing Day :)
been making these for years....before I even had a blog. Thanks again for this pattern, my favorite by far!
Finally found a wonderful pattern for hearts! Thank you so much for this post, have tried many other patterns, but none look as nice as this heart. Yay~ Thanks again :)
Thank you for sharing the heart pattern. Plan to use it to applique on squares I'm making for blankets in So. Africa. Also I have some friends with grand-daughters & great-grand-daughters who would probably love these on hair clips. Can think of lots of uses for these. Would be cute on jeans or jeans jackets.

Hello ! Thanks a lot for sharing this simple and clear pattern !! Leelou from France
Thank you for sharing! :)
thank you for the pattern Suzetta!i wrote about it here:
Happy New Year!
Hi. I really like your heart pattern but I have a question. Where do you sl st when finishing off the heart? I did it in the center for the small one but was not sure where to for the large one. The pattern says to sl st in the joining. Not sure where that is. I enjoy your patterns and thank you for your help. Blessings.
The final join is back where you started. I actually I no longer join with a slipstitch but use a tapestry needle to join invisibly.
I really appreciate your quick reply. Thanks so much.
Thanks for your help with this. It is a fun pattern to work.
Hi, this is a great pattern and really simple to follow, even though I'm fairly new to crochet! Just made a heart, and ended up with a big hole in the middle (the first ch which I did all of the stitches into.) I'm guessing I did something wrong when finishing, but wondered if you can offer any suggestions as to what that might be?


What I do is leave a tail in the beginning and then using a tapestry needle run the tail under all the stitches and pull it tight. That closes any hole.
I'm gonna ask a newbie's question even though I have been croceting since I was in my teens and I'm 74 now. You state to start in the first chain. How do you count the chains, staring from the needle or from the end of the chain? Most patterns I have read indicate something like "2nd chain from needle", etc. Since you don't say this, I am interpreting this to mean the first chain made. Is this correct?
Yes the first chain made is correct.
Suzetta want to thank you for the pattern I make pins for the people I work with I'm a cashier at Walmart .I make pins for them to wear for all holidays and seasons.looking for a pin shape of a person that I can make into a Walmart person with my own tiny crocheted Walmart vest from thread.can you help me with ideas .thanks again peggy8650 from penna.
I'm sorry Peggy, I don't have a person pattern. Only thing I can think of is possibly a gingerbread man pattern, slimmed down.
Will post a picture of the pins I make up from your heart pattern again thanks I was thinking do you know of appliqué hope I spelled that right of people perhaps that can be used as pins have been checking everywhere I'm not a computer person hard to teach an old dog of 65 anything new,lol.if and when I make up a person Walmart pin I'll post it for you to see thanks again for your heart pattern ~~ Peggy8650
