    Crochet Heart Garland

    Posted by  ·  January 28, 2009

    Crochet a festive garland for your home!


    They work together quickly!


    You will  find the basic heart pattern at Suzie’s Stuff among many other great patterns.

    Use size J crochet hook and worsted weight yarn.


    Round 1

    Chain 4.  Make all of the next stitches in the first chain. 3 trc, 3 dc, chain 1, 1 trc, chain 1, 3 dc, 3 trc, chain 2 slip stitch

    Round 2

    Chain 3, in first trc make sc and hdc, in next stitch 3 hdc, in next stitch 2 hdc, sc in next four stitches, chain 1 dc in trc, chain 1, sc in next four stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, 3 hdc in next stitch, hdc and sc in next stitch, chain 3 and slip stitch in center

    Round 3

    Chain 3 , sc in  top of chain 3 from previous row , sc  in each stitch all the way around (until chain 3 from previous row).  I chained one at the tip of the heart to get around the point easier. At beginning of chain 3 from previous row chain three and slip stitch in center of heart.  Pull  the loop to the back and fasten off.

    Inspired Crochet Designs wrote me and said that if you make the following changes on Round 3 it will keep the top of the heart from curling.

    Round 3

    Chain 3,  sc in  top of chain 3 from previous row , 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch, then sc in each of the next stitches until point of heart, chain one for point, sc in next five stitches, then sc in next st, 2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next stitch, chain three and then slip stitch in center of heart.  Pull the loop to the back and fasten off.



    Chain 45, in top of heart sc, chain 6, sc in top of  other side of the heart, chain 12, sc in top of heart, chain 6, sc in top of other side of the heart, chain 12. Repeat until all hearts are joined, chain 45 fasten off.

    Let me know how it goes!

      It's awesome to visit this web site and reading
      the views of all colleagues on the topic of this post,
      while I am also keen of getting familiarity.

      I'm from Brasil and we do not have a Valentine's day. We have boy/girlfriends day and it's on June 13th. Anyway I love hearts and love crochet as well. I'm now at almost 65 but I learned crochet all by myself when I was preagnant of my 37 y.o. daughter. From then I never stopped crocheting. But as I get old I'm not able to do longtime stuff. I'd reather do little pieces so hearts are my favorite or some baby clothing.

      Thank you for sharing your pattern. I have a question on the directions. In the 2nd round it is stated to chain 3, do we chain three in the same space we did the slip stitch?

      Thanks Rhonda

      I am going to try this with a magic circle for the beginning, I think it will look really good without the hole in the center.

      I love this pattern - I made it for my friend's wedding!

      I just realized this morning its Valentine's Day! My Mom is in the local Care Center after a massive stroke in November of 2009. I found this pattern and have finished the first one. Turned out perfect and so easy. I am going to string 5 together and on the middle 3 use a tapestry needle and white yarn...for 1-M, 2-O, 3-M and tie it to the front basket of her walker. She will love it and with it being so easy to make I can have it done and get over there before noon. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern and allowing a forgetful person the time to make it start to finish. I would love to post a pic of it when I finish, but no option.

      Darling, Darling Pattern! East to follow directions. Wore my 1st one to Church this Sunday a.m., and it was noticed right away by everyone.
      Getting started making lots more for Valentines Day. Thanks so much for sharing. (Using donated thread from Switzerland - very fancy...)

      I am so confused by round 1. I chained 4 and I don't know where to put the rest of my stitches after the first 3 trc.
    10. Sunday, September 29th, 2013
      oh wow, too funny! I just used your cupcake wrapper template and now I'm finding myself at your site again for some crochet! Yay!

      Hi Cindy - thanks so much for this great pattern! I found it in a Google search for crochet heart patterns and used it to yarnbomb Boylston Street near the site of where someone I know was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing.

      Can you let me know what HDC means? I've worked the first round and would live to make the whole garland!
    17. Thursday, February 21st, 2013
      Hello, your beautiful little heart inspired me for valentine's day and i made a tuto in french -not exactcly but almost the same as yours- that you can see on my blog...with of course a reference to you. Hope you won't mind ;-)

      I Love these very much! I wish to decorate for my toddler with them, but I am having a hard time getting started... Round 1 says Ch4, "Make all of the next stitches in the first chain. 3..."
      Is that in the fist stitch from the hook or the first stitch of the chain?
      Thank you!

      For those of you who don't know, trc is triple crochet, dc is double crochet, sc is single crochet slip stich is simple: poke your hook thru the hole, and pull thru both loops

      These are really CUTE!!
    37. Friday, November 4th, 2011

      A trebel goes like this: Yarn over, insert hook into nxt stitch, yarn over and pull through stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over pull through 2, yarn over and pull through 2. And there you have it. Your Treble crochet.

      Hope this Helps.

      Thanks for the instructions. My little hearts turned out so darling!
    41. Saturday, February 12th, 2011
      What a lovely idea! I wish I had found this earlier than 2 days before Valentine's day. I suppose it is never too late to start for next year! Thanks for project instructions.
    42. Friday, February 11th, 2011
      This is the perfect "little something" for me to whip up this weekend for my kid's teachers! Thanks!

      Love this tutorial! I managed to get round one done but I am having trouble with rounds 2 and 3. Do you know of a good video or site with photos that can help me.
    44. Friday, January 21st, 2011

      This pattern is fabulous! I hope you don't mind but I have blogged about it and linked it back to your page,

    45. Tuesday, January 11th, 2011
      **SO** glad you linked back to your wonderful tutorial- I have been watching Much Ado About Nothing (for the bajillionith time) and am in a valentiney mood today- a SNOW day! These little hearts have worked up quickly as I've sat cuddled up on my couch in front of the fireplace.
    46. Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010
      I posted a link of this pattern to my blog. I hope that is okay. If not, let me know and I will remove it. Thank you for this pattern, I LOVE it!!

      I think you should change the way you post on Raverly, bad karma to make it seem like your pattern so that people will click to your site, I love your site but you should just put suzies pattern in your finished projects so that people will see your finished project on her pattern listing on raverly if people like your finished project they can save to favs and you can invite people to your site in YOUR comments - But that just me
    48. Tuesday, March 9th, 2010
      Thanks for this cute pattern! I made one for Valentine's Day this year and I still have it up because I like it so much. Pictures...

      Hi there,
      A friend of mine crocheted these heart garlands for me and I sewed some new pillowcases for 2 of my children and then sewed the heart garlands to them. They turned out really cute. Please see my blog for pics.

      Thank you for this pattern!!

      Thanks so much for this how-to! My daughter and I have been crocheting hearts this week and I just put mine together yesterday - you can see here -
    53. Thursday, February 11th, 2010
      Hi, I made a few hearts, following your directions; they were on my Xmas tree and tomorrow my DD is going to wear one on her dress to school's V. Day party.
    54. Saturday, February 6th, 2010
      Here's a picture of my garland hanging by my fireplace.
    55. Sunday, January 31st, 2010
      I love your heart garland. I made one up today. But before I finished my garland I used the heart pattern to make a dish scrubby out of strips of nylon tulle. I made two hearts and crocheted them together with single crochets all the way around. I stuffed it a bit with leftover tulle. I have a picture of it on my blog.

    62. Saturday, February 7th, 2009
      I did it! I followed your pattern and made it with a pink veriegated yarn. I posted a pic of the garland today on my blog. Thanks!

      TOO CUTE!!!! My 9 yr old daughter loves it! We're going to make today"
    65. Monday, February 2nd, 2009
      I made a couple of these in the last few days and today made a little tiny heart version of this by using a magic circle and crocheting inside it. Make the magic circle then inside of it chain 4, 2 triple crochet, 3 double crochet, chain 1, 1 triple crochet, chain 1, 3 double crochet, 2 triple crochet, chain 3, and slip stitch to center of circle. Pull magic circle tight and tie off. I used it on a little baby bonnet. I'll be posting pics tomorrow on my blog.
      Thanks for the inspiration!
    66. Monday, February 2nd, 2009
      I really wanted to do this, but I just cannot get the hang of crochet -- so I wanted a garland so bad, I turned to fabric. You can see it here -- thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks for sharing this! I had some simple surgery earlier in the week but have enjoyed resting up in bed making these little hearts - I think I might do up another one for my son's kindergarten classroom.

      I love that garland. Perhaps you're not a crochet pattern writer, but perhaps you should be. :)

      Friday, January 30th, 2009
      What a great project! They do come together quickly. I got so inspired, that I added tiers and added pink ruffle fringe for accent. I also varied the sizes to keep it from looking too bulky. Thanks for the inspiration!
    71. Friday, January 30th, 2009
      i love these! thanks for sharing!

      super cute idea! My kiddos love the ones I made for their rooms. I could go overborad with heart garland, but I think my hubby might object! :)

      You're a genius! I just made this and it's wonderful. I made it in white wool, to add a little romance to a boring shelf in our bedroom. I'm going to make a couple more in red for Valentine's day--they really did stitch up in a hurry. I love your blog--thank you so much for all you share.
    76. Thursday, January 29th, 2009

      Oh I love it! I just made some heart garland but I like how your's is continuous. I'll have to give this one a go ~ Have a great day.
    79. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Very cute. I am definately gonna make this. Thanks so much for the tutorial. You are so crafty :)
    80. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I don't crochet at all, so I'm impressed that you modified a pattern and made this great garland!
    81. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      SO cool! I'm making this my after bedtime project for tonight. I have my doubts that mine will turn out half as cute as yours, but I'll never know until I try! I love this idea!
    82. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I really love the blog makeover! You are always so crafty. Those hearts are darling.
    83. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      cute! I love heart shaped anything! Can't get enough of Valentine's day!
    84. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I wish I knew how to crochet - these are cute. Maybe my mom needs a project.....
      Just wanted to say "hi" and let you know I'm thinking of you as Kansas Day approaches. :)
    85. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      This brightens up my day, wish I could crochet a little better!
    86. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Adorable! Can't wait to try them, going to look for yarn right now! Thanks for the cute idea!
    87. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I will have to give this one a try! Your hearts are gorgeous!! I think I am addicted to your projects... lol!

      I wonder how this will look on my banister?! hmm...
    88. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      That's a wonderful garland! I've got to try this sometime. :D

      Dina, you could probably find a knitted heart pattern online somewhere (try checking here: A chain is just pulling one loop through another, like knitting one stitch over and over again. And you could attach the chain to the hearts by knitting them together.
    89. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I think it's FABULOUS! I'll be linking and I hope I get time to give it a shot! I love the way it looks over the window!
    90. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      This is just darling. Your time into it is so special.
    91. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Those are sweet! I've passed it on to my crochet buddies online, thanks for sharing :O).
    92. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      This is just too cute.

      Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I love this but my tennis elbow doesn't let me crochet. Do you sell these?
    94. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Too cute!! I wanna try it!!
    95. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      The hearts go very quickly once you make a couple. I think you could make enough for a garland (6 or so) in an hour, then it doesn't take long to attach them to a chain.

      I am so sorry but I don't know how to make a knitted one. Maybe someone else will!
    96. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      This is so cute! I have to tell you I love your site. I sing that little tune Skip To My Lou every time I come across your page. You have so many neat ideas and I love it! I have put your button on my blog! Thanks! Dina :)
    97. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Wow! That looks awesome! I'm glad you posted it. I will have to try to create that!
    98. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      So pretty! How long does it take to do the whole thing? (An estimation of course.) :)
    99. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      i've never been so sad that i don't know how to crochet as i am now. is there ANYWAY to adapt this for knitting?! i'm too new to knitting to even know... it's so lovely.
    100. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Way cute! I'm sending it to my big sis who is a happy hooker.
    101. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Oooh! I am going to have to try this tonight. I just bought some red yarn the other day!

      Thanks for this idea!! Home with the kids today on a snow day. Great project for me to crochet and hang out with them.
      So far my first one turned out wonderfully. Going to make a bunch in Valentine colors.

      Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Sooooo cooool! I'm going to give this a try tonight!
    104. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      I LOVE it! I'm going to my yarn stash to see if I have something to use to make this. I'm excited to start this project immediately.
    105. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
      Very pretty!
    106. Wednesday, January 28th, 2009
