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

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.
