Are you looking for a quick and easy crochet project to make for Valentine's Day or to decorate your home with some love? A crochet heart ornament is a perfect choice! This simple and sweet project is suitable for beginners and can be completed in just a few minutes.
Materials You'll Need:
Worsted weight yarn in red or pink
Crochet hook size G (4mm)
Ribbon or string for hanging
Step 1: Make a Magic Ring
Begin by making a magic ring. To do this, create a loop with your yarn, leaving a tail about 6 inches long. Insert your hook into the loop, yarn over, and pull up a loop. Chain 1, then make 12 double crochet stitches into the center of the loop. Pull the tail to tighten the ring, then slip stitch into the first double crochet to join the round.
Step 2: Crochet the Heart Shape
Next, you will crochet the heart shape by working 2 double crochet stitches into each stitch of the previous round. Chain 1 between each set of double crochet stitches. After you have completed the first half of the heart shape, stuff it with a little bit of fiberfill or scrap yarn. Then, continue crocheting the second half of the heart shape. When you reach the end of the round, slip stitch into the first double crochet to join.
Step 3: Finish and Attach a Hanging String
Cut the yarn and pull it through the last loop on your hook. Weave in the ends with a tapestry needle. Finally, attach a ribbon or string to the top of the heart so that you can hang it up.
There you have it, a lovely crochet heart ornament that you can make in just a few minutes! You can use different colors or add some embellishments to make it even more special. These little hearts are perfect for Valentine's Day, but can also be used to decorate your home, your office, or to give as a thoughtful gift to your loved ones.Happy crocheting!
