Tiny Crochet Hearts

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 these 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.

How to make tiny crochet hearts

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.)


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.

  1. These are perfect. However, what do I do to finish this off after pulling tightly to close the circle…?

  2. like you I had searched all over for a tiny heart and none suited me until I hit on your pattern– very clever you figured that one out and it is now my favorite tiny heart! TY! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  3. I finally conquered the MAGIC circle while making little hearts.
    Plan to use them on baby hats, make some burrets, use some on a heart shaped wreath along with flowers, and think I could make neat book marks with them as well.
    Thanks for the inspiration! So pleased

  4. Hi would it be okay if I used your pattern to make some hair pins to sell at a local craft fair please? 🙂

  5. These are exactly what I needed for my baby beanies. So tiny but easy to make. Thanks for sharing.

    This pattern worked up in less than 5 minutes and was PERFECT!!!! I’m so excited because I just started crocheting toys. I am working on one for a baby shower and my four year old insists that I need to make a heart so that she can fill this fox rag doll up with love. We recently went to a chain bear store for the first time ? lol. I’m sure I’ll find tons of other uses for these, Thanks again!

    Hi Jamie,
    Thanks for sharing the patterns, they are so cute and easy to follow. I just made 10 tiniy hearts for a Valentine Tic Tac Toe using your pattern.
    Thanks a lot!

  9. Just thing thing to put on my homemade wrist warmers! Thanks!

  10. So cute ! I used your pattern to make earings with a tiny bead in the middle and it came out beautifully. Thank you !

  11. 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.

  12. These are soo adorable I'm dying to learn how to do them but I can't seem to get it down… would you maybe have a video of it ? Also I can't find the contact button but my email is

  13. Every time I click on something cool, it's scattered thoughts! I love all of your craftiness! Just made one of these with new technique and totally love the closed knot!! I'm so excited to make hearts!

  14. These are so great! I just made 3 of them to make into a Shamrock for my St Patricks Day square for Crochet Mood Blanket 2014! Thanks!

  15. These little hearts are adorable! I don't crochet much (knitting's my thing) but know I could tackle them Also thanks for sharing how to do a Magic ring, never heard of it before. Also thanks for the pattern! Thanks for sharing at Sunday's Best!
