Crochet Granny Square Heart Pattern, Pt II

Crochet Granny Heart

Remember yesterday’s Crochet Granny Square Heart? Here’s part II!

They are very simple, and I’ve seen some similar ones searching “granny square heart” but none quite like these.  Below, I put up my pattern, and then the different stages of borders, depending on what you want to do with it.

Crochet Granny Square Heart, no border

Ch. 4, join.

Ch. 4, (3 dc, ch 1) 3 times, 2 dc into ring, join in 3rd ch..

Ch 3, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1) in next 2 corners, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 3) in last corner, sl st to beg. ch 1 to join.

This is the picture above – a basic crochet granny square heart with no border.  This is a good place to stop if you want to incorporate the heart into a traditional granny square or other patterns.

To make a nice solid border for ornaments and gift toppers:

Chain stitch around, joining, then tucking in ends or make a loop.

There you go! Please tell me in the comments what you think and if the pattern is correct.  Have fun!

Cute pattern! I’m looking forward to trying it after I get everything else on my to-do list done. I’d like to make a whole stack of hearts and then string them together on a long crocheted chain to make a colorful swag. Thanks for sharing your pattern. : )

I forgot to type my whole name in the comment above. I never spell “Jenn” with two n’s. I’m usually either “Jen” or “Jennifer.” Clearly I was distracted by your interesting crochet pattern. : ) Something tells me I’ll try it before I get done with my to-do list. Maybe I’ll just add the pattern to the list… Hmm.. : )

This is so cute.

I recently ran across a blog, Emerging Mummy, whose author has similar leanings to yours. Today’s post especially made me think of you: http://www.emergingmummy.com/2011/02/in-which-every-stitch-is-prayer-of.html

Hi I love this pattern (thanks for sharing!) but I had the same problem as saphire elephant. the curves of the heart were very flattened and my point was too curved. I sort of fixed it by adding an extra chain to each curve and one to the point. then instead of 3 sc in the point when doing the border i did 2sc, 1 ch, 2sc. this has made it look better but not perfect like yours so i’d be really grateful to know what you advised! many thanks!
