Let’s get hooking on this free crochet heart pattern.


Crochet hooks, I use these clover grip hook 2.5mm, works wonders if you have carpal tunnel syndrome. You will also need some stitch markers because you will be working in rounds.

Scissors to cut off your loose ends.

Polly fill to stuff your little hearts.

tapestry needle I like the small metal needle for these smaller projects.

Cotton, I used a double knit, light worsted weight cotton yarn. But if you don’t have cotton, any yarn will do. The free crochet heart pattern is a good project to get rid of all those scrap yarns.

If you are new to crochet and you have none of these tools available mentioned above you can purchase this set, Crochet set. It contains all the tools you need and more, plus it has this handy little bag so that you can keep all your things together.
