What You Need to Crochet Heart Patterns

You won’t need any special tools, magic wands, or mystical spells to make the perfect crochet heart. You can create any of the crochet heart patterns in this list with just basic crochet tools:

  • Crochet hooks – Make sure to have crochet hooks on hand. You can find the hook sizes you need listed in the ‘materials’ section of each crochet heart pattern!
  • Yarn – Make sure to check the pattern to see what yarn weight to use. Each pattern should list a recommended brand or weight in the “suggested yarn” section of the heart crochet pattern you’re following!
  • Scissors – A pair of scissors is another important tool that you will use for all of your crochet projects. You’ll need them to cut the yarn and trim any leftover yarn tails when you’re done!
  • Stitch markers – You might need stitch markers to keep track of where you are if you’re following a stitch pattern. We recommend “removable” or “locking” style stitch markers for crochet projects. If you don’t have stitch markers, you can use a strand of scrap yarn—preferably in a different color so it’s easy to see.
  • Yarn/darning needle – You will need a yarn needle or darning needle to sew in the loose ends.
  • Crochet heart patterns – Make sure to pick out your favorite crochet heart pattern free of charge!
