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.

Learn the 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.

  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.
