To begin the heart pattern gather a crochet hook (that corresponds to the yarn you are using) and some yarn scraps. You can also use a new skein of yarn to begin with. If you decided to use scraps or a new ball of yarn either way you are ready to start crocheting a heart.

The Yarn

You will want to use some medium weight yarn to crochet this heart design. I used yarn scraps of Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Pink & Magenta for my sample that I had left over from other projects. If you cannot find or do not have these colors any two colors of pink would work well.

This heart pattern is easy to make, a cute project and a scrap buster! It’s a win-win!

Need a substitute yarn?

Instead of Vanna’s Choice try Lion Brand Basic Stitch or Caron Simply Soft.

Don’t hesitate to try different colors, brands, thickness’s of yarn scraps because this heart can easily be made using endless color and yarn combinations.
