Basic Heart Pattern:
1) magic circle with 6sc (6)
2) 3sc in first st then sl st next st then 3sc in the next st and 1sc in the next 3st (10)
3) 1sc in the next 2st then 5hdc in next st, sl st next 2st then 5hdc in next st, 1sc in next 3st, ch1 and sl st next st. f/o and leave a long yarn tail for sewing.
And that is it!

Easy as pie but if you have troubles or are new to crochet then just follow along with the video tutorial right here. Also see the video for sewing tips

You can add faces too! I show how to add in the yarny mouth in the video tutorial and I dotted the eyes in with paint.

Crochet around the edge,
Put the wrong sides of the hearts together and make sure to line up the stitches the best you can. The starting stitch will be in the stitch next to the middle st at the bottom of dip in the heart. Pull the yarn that you will crochet with through the stitch of both hearts, and ch1 then 1sc in the next st, ch1 and repeat all the way around chaining one before every sc. When you get to the last st do not ch1 just sl st the last st and from there you can make a loop to hang the heart from at the same time. Hide the yarn tails inside the heart. See the video tutorial if this part is confusing

Pencil toppers or Hearts on a Stick,
Sew or crochet 2 hearts together, remember wrong sides should face each other. Leave an opening at the bottom of the heart just big enough for the pencil or stick to fit inside. Add fabric or tacky glue if you want them stuck on permanently

Puffy Heart,
Place 2 hearts together, wrong sides facing each other and sew or whip stitch the back loops together. Start near the bottom and work around leaving a gap for stuffing. Use a stuffing stick to get the stuffing into the bumps of the heart. Finish sewing then knot off and hide yarn tail inside heart. Add a loop for hanging the puffy hearts if desired.

I hope you  enjoyed this pattern!
Why donating is important and my thank you here.


  1. I just made a puffy one stuffed with catnip instead my Frank Sinatra LOVES it!

  2. I have made several of these little hearts. They can be filled with almost anything. I used cedar chips inside for putting in my boots while they dry. I used sage and lemon peel inside a gym bag. I used plain sage in my handbag. I made some for my great niece who is pregnant and having trouble sleeping filled with lavender. She says they are helping a lot. I am going to make some with mint in them for my dresser drawers. Will smell good while keeping the clothes fresh.

  3. I'm going to sew a heart onto a dress-me-bunny for my great-niece. You know, like a Raggedy Ann. I'm thinking maybe the overalls could be modified into bloomers, too... we'll see. Thanks!!! Mary P.
