Easy Heart Stitch Ideas

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Are you ready to feel the love? No matter if you are going to spend this day alone, with friends or have romantic plans with your other half – you absolutely need to find some time for crocheting! And what better theme to undertake than hearts, right?

Today’s post is all about heart stitches! I knew that there will come the time when I write about one of Olivia‘s tutorials, because they’re just so beautiful. Often the easiest techniques create the loveliest patterns, so you will find a lot of ideas for beginners, as usual.

Grab your crochet hook and let’s dive in!

This romantic stitch is dense but cute, so use it for kitchen accessories, cowls, cushion covers or baby blankets. Once you learn the basics of this stitch, you will go on without even looking. It’s a perfect idea for a weekend project.

Materials:

Olivia used Willow & Lark Ramble Yarn, which is 100% wool, in two lovely colorways: Snowdrop and Rhubarb Pink. She decided to use 3.75mm (F/5) crochet hook with it. I bet scissors and yarn needle for weaving ends will come in handy, too.

We start by making starting chain in multiples of 6 + 3. First row consists of double crochet stitches, next one of single crochets. Third row is when we introduce pink yarn. To achieve these cute heart shapes, we need to make double crochet clusters, which next are separated by background color.
