A few years ago I created a crochet heart pattern (Heart on a Sleeve Crochet Heart Pattern) and used it to make a scarf for my daughter. I LOVED how it turned out, and when a crocheter friend sent me a picture of her finished scarf, she turned it into a conversation heart scarf!

Creating Different Crochet Heart Sizes

You can work 3 different heart sizes with this pattern. A small, medium and large hearts.

  • Row 1 = Small Heart
  • Row 1 + 2 = Medium Heart
  • Rows 1 + 2 + 3 = Large Heart
  • Row 4 = Border + different color

Check out the free crochet heart scarf pattern that uses this heart pattern as a template:

How to Crochet a Heart for Beginners

This easy how to crochet a heart tutorial and pattern has four rows, which makes it super simple. It uses the basics of all crochet stitches; the single crochet, half double crochet, and treble crochet. There is one somewhat “advanced” stitch called the stacked treble crochet.

Alternatives to Using a Stacked Treble Crochet

You don’t need to create the stacked treble crochet if you don’t want to – do this instead:

  1. Chain 3 to start round 1, then make 1 treble crochet into the ring.
  2. Continue with Steps 3 – 7.
  3. For step 8 (beginning of round 2), single crochet into the 3rd chain from beginning of round (into it, not around it).
  4. Continue on to step 10.

How to Do a Stacked Treble Crochet

Ultimately, watching the video will help you learn this stitch the best. However, here is a step by step guide to creating the stacked treble crochet. To get a visual of what a stacked treble crochet looks like, refer to Step 2 below.

  1. Create a single crochet in magic circle.
  2. Insert hook in left vertical bar of the single crochet V.
  3. Yarn over, draw up a loop.
  4. Yarn over, and compete your single crochet by drawing through both loops on hook.
  5. Repeat steps 2 – 4 one more time to complete 1 stacked treble crochet.

Round 1:

  4. Double crochet 4.
  5. Treble crochet 1

  1. I can’t get round 4 to work out right. As written you’re only 2/3 of the way around the heart when it tells you to fasten off. What am I missing? (Stitch counts per round would also be really helpful to check each one)

    • This one has been tested sooooo many times. I had such a frustrating time with it to be frank. Just use stitch markers to mark the stitches. It helps.

  2. One of the most appealing hearts I’ve found. I used this as a center and created my own unique granny square… it’s perfect for the blanket I’m making! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am so glad to find your post, beautiful solid hearts❤️ the round 3 SC stitches border creates a flat edging. I am crocheting 3 different sizes of hearts to appliqué at the back of a triangle shawl. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Thank You so much for this pattern. I’m not so good on math and I will probably need two more rounds as I’m using thing yarn for a baby project. Can you help me with that?
