So, this is not really a new pattern, but it is improved! This is a version of the second pattern ever, that I posted a couple years ago. The only thing I’ve really changed is I’ve rewritten the joining row to not have any decreases and added some pics, to simplify and clarify. I’ve also added three new sizes! XS, XL and 2XL. You can find the measurements of the different sizes in the pattern specifications below.

The smallest heart is so cute! And with all the different sizes you can really experiment with yarn weights and make anything from little heart keychains to big heart pillows.

If you do crochet any hearts, please share them with me, I would love to see! @NeaCreates

If you want to share the pattern you may link to the pattern post, you may not repost the pattern on your site. Items completed from this pattern may be sold, provided that you give Nea Creates credit for the pattern and provide a link to the pattern post or the Nea Creates home page.

Finished size: 2XL: 15x15x7cm, XL: 13x13x6cm, L: 11x11x5cm, M: 9x9x4cm, S: 7x7x3cm, XS: 5x5x2cm (HxWxD).

Difficulty: Easy, only joining the tops of the hearts is a bit complex.

Notes: This pattern uses US crochet terms and SI units throughout. I use a smaller hook size than what the yarn calls for to get tighter stitches. The hearts are crocheted in continuous rounds throughout. You only need to use the suggested yarn weight and hook size if you want to obtain the same approximate finished size as specified above. This pattern will produce a well proportioned heart using any yarn weight with the corresponding hook size.

    There is no listed meaning for the “P” listed terms. Following the pattern was easy up until that point. I checked each size, read the diresctions, am I just missing something?

    1. Nea says:

      P as in picture, each picture is marked with P1, P2 and so on so that you can refer to the pictures from the instructions. 😊

  2. Lucia says:

    Hello! I tried to make the xs heart but in the end of round 2 I had 14 stitches instead of 15.
    By the way, beautiful patterns! Thank you for sharing them. ❤

    1. Nea says:

      Thank you! ☺️ Did you have 18 sts after round 1? It’s pretty easy to miss one of the sts that are close to the join of the tops. 😉
