The Crochet Heart Garland is a free pattern here on my blog! A beginner friendly Valentine's Day themed design that also works as a coaster or applique! Below you'll find the free pattern and video tutorial.
Pattern Design + Construction:
Garlands are one of my favorite holiday crochet projects to design. They're a quick and easy way to add a handmade, affordable and festive touch of holiday décor to any space.
This pattern is super versatile! These crochet hearts are adorable hung as bunting over the buffet or mantle. I like to hang my crochet garlands in my cubicle at work for some festive cheer! They're also the perfect size for Valentine's crochet coasters or cute little gift tag accessories!
The basic stitches used in this pattern makes this an excellent beginner project. Each crochet heart is worked in flat rows of single crochet with the border added at the end. The finished heart measures approximately 3.5"wide x 3.5" tall. The hearts are strung together into a garland by stringing jute through the backs, but yarn or ribbon could be used for variation. You could easily make larger hearts by increasing your yarn and crochet hook sizes.

For this crochet heart garland, we'll be using medium (4) worsted weight yarn. I really enjoy using worsted weight yarn for most of my projects because of the versatility as well as the availability in most craft stores. Worsted weight yarn also tends to come in very affordable brands. You can easily substitute with other brands and colors as long as the ounces per gram are similar. I've used the following for this project:
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color White
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Flamingo
Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Hot Red
