I wanted to make some really small hearts for Valentine’s Day crafts, but couldn’t find any patterns online that I liked. After a few tries, I came up with these little cuties.

tiny crochet hearts

Tiny Crochet Heart Pattern
worsted weight yarn
size F/5 (3.75mm) crochet hook
tapestry needle for weaving ends

hdc: half double crochet
sc: single crochet
sl st: slip stitch

gauge: not important, but mine are about 1 1/2 – 1 1/4 inches across

“Big” Tiny Heart (the one on the left)
Make a magic ring.
R1: chain 1, sc into loop 7 times, pull loop closed, join with sl st to chain 1
R2: sl st into 1st stitch, 5 hdc into second stitch, hdc in next two stitches, hdc then chain 1 and hdc again in the bottom stitch, hdc in next two stitches, 5 hdc into next stitch, sl st in original sl st.

Give the tail a little tug to help form the heart V at the top, tie knot, weave ends.

Give the bottom stitches a little tug to make the V point at the bottom.

“Small” Tiny Heart (the one on the right)
Repeat pattern, but replace sc for hdc.

    very new to crochet so pardon me if this is a silly question but the
    hdc chain 1 hdc in bottom stitch
    part confuses me…what is considered the bottom stitch? and is it 1hdc, chain 1, 1 hdc all in that stitch?

  18. mbh says:

    I immediately set out to make this heart, and although I’m at an intermediate level, am lost at “hdc cain 1 hdc in bottom stitch. I tried a few things, and nothing looks right. Help – I am half done and I love what I see so far.

  19. Terry Ginn Conley says:

    thank you I copy your tiny crochet hearts I will learn it how practice. thank again.I think crafts everything for fun. smiles Terry

  20. Jen says:

    I’m with Jeanne… I get confused at that part. HDC in the next two stitches, then I’m stuck. “hdc chain 1 hdc in bottom stitch” ??? Is that another hdc in the next st, then ch 1, then another hdc? Thanks for your help!!

  21. Jen says:

    Ok nevermind! I looked at past comments and found the answer! Thank you!!

  22. Oh that’s wonderful! Stumbled on it while browsing Pinterest. I was just going to make up my own…thanks!

  23. Diane says:

    I just wanted to tell you that your tiny hearts are HUGELY cute. I have featured them on my site (along with 2 other cute heart patterns). Thank you very much for sharing this pattern :)


  39. Laura says:

    Great pattern; thank you! I joined some shimmering, white fine yarn at the top of the big heart and into each red stitch, I put a sc, hdc, sc. This made a scalloped edge.

  40. Kristy says:

    I love this! but I needed my heart to be even tinier so i kinda skiped row 1. It worked out very well in the end! now i can make dozens of tiny hearts for any project!
