What You’ll Learn

  • How to crochet the smallest heart to add as an appliqué to your crochet projects.
  • Some project ideas for your tiny crochet hearts.

Materials Needed

  • Some classic worsted weight yarn (colors of your choice). Any yarn would do really, just make sure it’s not hairy or fuzzy. I used DK yarn in Red Wine from Paintbox Yarns Simply DK.
  • Crochet hook 2.5 mm
  • A tapestry needle
  • A pair of scissors


  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st = stitch
  • sts = stitches
  • fo = fasten off

Skill Level



Note: Gauge is not really that crucial for this tutorial. Just try experimenting with different hook sizes to get a gauge you are happy with for the project you are working on.

For this project, my gauge was 6 stitches & 2 rows in dc = 2.5 cm


Between 2 to 3 meters (2.1 to 3.2 yards) of DK yarn.


This tiny heart measures approximately: H =  0.5 inches (1.5 cm), and W = 0.6 inches (1.7 cm).


  • You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations).
  •  Numbers at the end of each step (in brackets) indicate the number of final stitches in that step.
  • I use US crochet terms.
