Some More Crochet Hearts

I am really enjoying finding and making romantic crochet heart patterns that are hearts16demonstrated on YouTube tutorials. The two hearts that I made today are both fairly Easy to make. Being familiar with the stitches is important as neither of the tutorials are designed to be “how to do the individual stitches”, they are more about demonstrating the pattern. If you have used single, double, treble, and double treble stitches you won’t have any trouble at all making these.

Crochet Project Notes – Hearts

I used more of my Valentine themed scrap colors for these. The Red heart is Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red, and the Purple heart is Red Heart Super Saver Accent in Bright Orchid. Both are medium weight yarn (4). I used an H/8 5.00mm hook for both.

This one is so pretty I couldn’t resist making it. It looked a little complicated and as I have previously stated she is an extremely talented crocheter. As I watched the video tutorial I was so happy to see that it really wasn’t very difficult at all. The mesh part of my heart is not as clean as hers, but I still love this heart. If you are not subscribed to this YouTube channel already, I highly recommend that you do. I have found so many beautiful motifs, borders, and hairpin lace crochet patterns and techniques from her tutorial videos.

Purple Heart

This one was also very easy to make. You will need to know how to do a double treble stitch which really is just wrapping the yarn one more time on your hook than a treble stitch. This pattern is very easy to follow and the heart comes out pretty large, mine ended up being about 7.5 inches wide. I imagine if you did another row or 2 before the picot trim you could have a nice size applique to sew onto a small pillow. What I really liked best about this heart is the different textures that you get with the combination of stitches that are used. It is rustic and lacy at the same time.

I think I have already picked the hearts I want to crochet for tomorrow’s post, but as I was looking through the videos I spotted a Small Heart Doily tutorial…..do I dare? I have not made any doilies yet and they are on my “Future Projects to Explore/Learn” list. I am a little intimidated but as they say “Faint heart never made fair doily” or something like that. So why not give it at try – “It’s better to have loved a crochet pattern and frogged it than to never have crocheted at all!”  ❤

Thanks for reading!
