Make a festive crochet heart garland for your home. It is a super quick Valentines decoration….however I must tell you I gave this to my husband for a handmade Valentine’s gift and we have left in hanging in our room all year long! If you like to crochet you might like to whip up my free easy crochet rose pattern. So pretty and easy. I also have a jumbo crochet flower! Flowers are one of my favorite things to crochet. I have made a roundup of some of the most beautiful crochet flower patterns. Be sure to check it out.
These crochet hearts work together quickly! In no time you can have a bunch of hearts. Just vary the size of hook and type of yarn to make different sized hearts. I made these colorful crochet hearts with Lily Sugar ‘n Cream. I do love working in this yarn! It makes awesome crochet dishcloths, granny square dishcloths, and crochet dish sponges.
Pattern adapted from this basic heart pattern.

Easy Crochet Heart
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
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
Chain 3, sc in top of chain 3 from the previous row, sc in each stitch all the way around (until chain 3 from the 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 the 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. Used (2sc in next st) twice around the bumps of the heart in the last row. and it totally got rid of the curling edges. If you have trouble with curling this it is worth a try. It was easier for me to sc all the way around (chain one at the point of the heart).
