Free Pattern – Mini Crochet Heart

Valentine’s Day will be here in a few short days and while I may not have many decorations set up yet, I did get the heart garland up and have been busy crafting behind the scenes.

There are lots of tutorials out there that will show you how to make very simple mini crocheted hearts… in fact, I’ve made a few of those myself. This year though, I wanted to make a heart that was equally as small, but different… and so I started experimenting with stitches until I came up with a pattern that I liked.
