how to crochet a heart {in one round}


This was one of my first craft tutorials I did on my old blog.

I thought it would be fitting to start off the same way.




These mini hearts are done in one round, so you can whip out a few in an evening. I used 8ply in the example, which is also known as DK, or light. I tend to think of it as 'regular'. This was also done with a 4mm hook (G size)

This pattern assumes some basic crochet knowledge, but dont worry if you are a beginner, over the next few weeks I will be adding basic instructions to help out. Pin it, and come back!

OK... Here it is:


Chain 4, then (without doing a slip stitch) work all the round in the first chain: 3 dtr, 3tr, 1ch, 1dtr, 1 ch, 3tr, 3 dtr, 3 chains sl st in the centre, fasten off.

How easy is that!

That is the UK terminology, and because I am feeling nice, here is the US version:

Chain 4, then (without doing a slip stitch) work all the round in the first chain 3 tr, 3 dc, 1 ch, 1tr, 1ch, 3dc, 3tr. 3 chains Sl st in the centre, fasten off.



If you ever need help with conversion, this is an easy chart I made.

    For all the ladies who are struggling to learn crochet, don't give up, the possibilities are endless with what you can make. I learnt from doing it along with youtube videos, the crochet crowd and happy berry crochet are really easy to follow along with ☺
