Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

Tiny Crochet Hearts (w/ pattern)

I've spent the last week hunting down the perfect mini crochet heart pattern for a new project. (hair clips)  I tried multiple tutorials, but wasn't getting the results I was looking for...  Most of the hearts were turning out too big and a few of them, I couldn't get to turn out quite right.

After making something over and over in different ways, you start to understand a little more of how it's put together.  Most of the hearts I made were fairly simple, and it finally occurred to me to try a combination of smaller stitches...  Woo hoo! I made my own mini-heart tutorial!  So if you are looking for a teeny tiny crochet heart pattern, (less than an inch) Then this pattern is exactly what you need.

For theses hearts, it's important to pay attention to your stitches, keeping them all the same tension.  If a few stitches are too tight or too loose, the heart will look a little wonky.  (Like the pink one on the right in the photo below.)  The hearts are so small, there isn't a lot of room for variation in the stitch tension.  After you make a couple, you will be able to whip them out in just a few minutes each.

Teeny- Tiny Crochet Hearts:

Yarn used:  Caron Simply Soft, medium weight (4)
Hook used: 4 mm
Tip:- whatever yarn you end up using, I suggest using a hook slightly smaller than recommended.  (The Caron Simply Soft recommends a 5mm and I used a 4mm.)

Instructions:

Make a magic circle/ring, (just make the loop around your hand) then ch 2.
Make all of the following stitches through the center of the magic ring:
2 dc, 2 hdc, 1 dc, 2 hdc, 2 dc, ch 2, sl st through the magic ring
Pull the magic ring closed.  Give the bottom or top edge of the heart a tug if needed.  Weave in loose ends.


To make the little hair clips, I used a snap clip with a small hole on the end and just hand sewed the heart on with coordinating thread.  (The hearts would also be adorable on a little bobby pin.  I would use one like this and probably sew the heart to a small piece of felt and then glue the felt to the circle.)


So cute! Like this project? Don't forget to pin it.

  12. Making these hair clips and bobby pins is exactly what I had in mind when I searched "tiny crochet heart pattern". You read my mind. I have made some larger hearts for larger hair clip and found that Ch 2 at the tip make a nice pointy tip of the heart. So if you replace the 1 DC with Ch 2 you will get that effect....if that's what you are looking for. Just thought I would share. Thanks for the pattern.
