These tiny crochet hearts are perfect for the last-minute Valentine’s Day crochet project.
When I flipped open my calendar the other day, I couldn’t believe it was already February! Oh yeah, January is just passing by so quickly!
A little bit of panic set in because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I have done absolutely no decorating!
Thankfully, I was able to whip up this mini heart pattern that can use for many things as a Valentine’s Day craft idea.

These small crocheted hearts, It’s great for beginners and seasoned crochet gurus alike. You can whip them up in less than 10 minutes.
They are crocheted all in one piece, so no sewing is involved; how simple is that?
Since this is a small crochet project using scrap yarn, I didn’t have to worry about purchasing anything new.

Best yarn for crocheting mini hearts.
I prefer working with cotton yarn for these because it’s softer and holds the shape of the tiny heart prettier than acrylic yarn. Since I’m using them for many different things, it’s proving to be much more versatile.
After I got a bunch of them done, I managed to make a crochet mini heart headband out of it by I did a simple crochet chain to connect them.
Moreover, I even attach them to my fluffy crochet cowl.
You could also use a length of ribbon to tie them together to create a garland, but if you’re already crocheting, it’s just as easy to make a chain.
What I absolutely love about this free crochet pattern is that it takes no time at all to complete.
I’d estimate that it might take a beginner about 10-15 minutes maximum to make, whereas an avid crocheter could whip up three or four in that amount of time.
It really is the easiest crochet heart pattern ever!
