Little Hearts

An original Crochet Pattern by Diane Sudduth

Little Hearts



This pattern is designed to utilize smallish bits of yarns left over from other projects and is thus infinitely versatile.   I’ve used from one up to five strands of yarn to make hearts, most often using two or three strands.   I love pairing a relatively plain yarn with a thinner sparkle yarn and once paired all of my colored yarns with a strand of glow-in-the-dark yarn.  

This pattern can be worked in a single or double row, depending on how large you want the hearts to be and how much scrap yarn you have available.  

Have fun, and don’t be afraid to experiment!

  • Scraps of yarn – any size, any color, any combination
  • Crochet hooks – various sizes, whichever works best with the yarn(s) you’ve chosen
