Some of my first patterns were appliqués and small crochet items and I have decided to post these for free on my blog for anyone that is looking for a small quick crochet project.
These little applique hearts are super cute and easy to make. I love using them to adorn knit/crochet projects as well as use them to embellish cards and other paper crafts. Tiny Crochet Hearts are also a great way to use up extra bits of yarn.
This appliqué heart was one of my first patterns I had written and uploaded to my Etsy shop in 2010, this was before digital downloads were a thing and you had to manually email patterns to customers, I do not miss those days lol. I thought I should do a little update on this pattern and show some photos of this little heart crocheted with other size yarns.

Suggested Yarns: used in the blog post
100% Cotton Yarn works great with this pattern, and would be perfect to add to a Valentine’s Day project.
Let’s Begin! Images below use Malabrigio Yarn that I had leftover from another project
Step 1: Make a Magic Adjustable Ring (MAR), ch 2. All work will be done in MAR, you will need to adjust the MAR as you crochet.
Step 2: 3dc in MAR.
Step 3: 3hdc into MAR.
Step 4: ch1, 3hdc into MAR
Step 5: 3dc into MAR.
Step 6: ch2, slst into MAR.
Step 7: cut yarn and bring yarn tail down through center of MAR.
Using the MAR yarn tail, cinch closed and tie both yarn tails together. Weave in loose yarn and trim ends.
And that is it, you are all set, make as many as you want and add to any project 🙂
These work up great with all different types of yarn, just be sure to use an appropriate sized hook for the yarn.
One of my favorite things to do with these little hearts is add them to note card, and other paper crafts.
I have a FREE PDF of the Handmade with Love note card, you can download the file by clicking the link below.
FREE Yarn Heart Note Card Printable
The file is set up on 8.5″ x 11″ Letter and will print 2 cards per sheet. The yarn heart will print on the card and you can use as-is or add a crochet yarn heart in the printed yarn hearts place. Just add a dab of glue and stick right on top of the printed heart and you have a pretty sweet crochet heart card that can be given with your handmade gifts 🙂
I even made a few wooden tags with them.
I purchased these wooden tags years ago at Michaels, but they seem to always have wooden tags of some kind available every year, the style varies slightly and in-store always seems to be different than what is available online. You can also find a wide variety of Wooden Gift Tags on Amazon.
