Hanging Heart Crochet Decoration – Tutorial | Girlybunches


Hi everyone, it’s Olivia from Girlybunches
and in this week’s video I am going to be showing you how I made this cute adorable
3-D hanging heart and it does not have to be hanging but you can add this part on to
make it hanging and this is really simple to do. There is a lot of counting but its
very simple and its quite a quick project to do so if you are looking for a last minute
gift for someone, whenever throughout the year then this is ideal. I have done it in
blue because the red yarn that I started to do it in, you could not see the stitches and
there is no point me showing you how to do something if you cannot see what I am doing.
So I hope you will enjoy this project and I will show you what you are going to need
and how to make it. So for this project you will need scissors to cut your yarn You will
need a darning needle. I have some contrasting yarn here to use as a stitch marker, I have
my soft toy filling which is just regular toy filling, which is just regular toy filling
nice and soft fluffy stuff. You will need a bit more than this but I just wanted to
show you what I was using. I think it is 100% polyester and you will need some yarn. I am
using blue because it is the best colour to show up on the screen. I did start using red
but you could not see what I was doing. This is double knit and you would normally need
a four mm hook for this but I like a nice firm texture and feel to the project, so I
am using a slightly smaller hook and this is a three and a half mm, just down half a
mm in size and that just makes the difference giving it a nicer, firmer feel. Obviously
if you want a soft feel then use the hook that is required for your yarn. But this is
just my preference. OK, so to start off you need to make fifteen chains and now we will
work into the top part, which we would normally work and we will also work into the bottom
loops. So we will basically travel down this side, to round and come back up and the first
row will give us that V shape. So now we need to do three double crochets into the second
chain from the hook, so that is the first one and that is the second one. So I am calling
them double crochets because that is how I know them, but you may know them as single
crochets. I am British so I call them double crochets and it is the same stitch but you
just do three of them into that second chain from the hook. This is the fiddly part, so
that is one, two and one more three. There we go, so that makes our three double crochets,
one, two, three into that second chain from the hook. So now we need to do one double
crochet into the next five stitches. Now skip the next two chains and do the same again,
as in doing one double crochet into the next five stitches and then three double crochets
into that last stitch along. So skip the next two and then start again on the third one
alone and this time we will be making that V shape so don’t make it too loose. Make sure
you have pulled the yarn up as firm as you can. Not too tight but you need to make sure
that you have a definite point there, so that is one, two, three, four, five and then again
three double crochets into that last chain, one, two, three. So no what that does is bring
the stitches around and now we can work into the back loops, so if I pull my hook out I
can just show you that that there is called the back loop and that is the part of the
chain that did not get worked into and that is now where we are going to put the hook
to work the rest of the stitches into. I am ust showing you where I will be going. OK,
so now we need to do five double crochets, not all in the same one but one double crochet
into the next five stitches, one, two, three, four, five. You will
see that I have worked into those back loops of that chain and that brings us to the point
where we made the V shape which is the two chain space so basically what we need to do
is put our hook into that chain space, like that, and do one double crochet, two chains
and into that space do two double crochets. So now we need to do one double crochet into
the next five chains, so that is one, two, three, four and one more, five. That brings
us back to where we started, here, and that’s upside down but if I turn it this way around
you can start to see that it is starting to get that V heart shape. So if you wanted to
add a stitch marker, this would be a good place and I am just using a piece of contrasting
yarn with a knot in the end and I just lay that over my work so I have a knot on the
back and I just lay that over where I will continue to work my stitches so it will be
easy to pull out at the end but it is just a nice little way of reminding yourself where
you should end, because when you start this counting it is easy to forget where you started
off. So now we need to start the second round and we need to do two double crochets into
the top of the three double crochets that we did at the start. So we do two double crochets,
two double crochets and two double crochets into those three stitches there. It is tricky
to get that hook in but once you do it’s alright, she said. That’s one, two. Into the next one,
two double crochets, one, two and into the next one along, two double crochets, one two.
So that brings us around nicely. I will just move that out of the way. So now we need to
do one double crochet into the next four stitches, one, two, three, four and that brings us down
to that point there. So we skip the two chains like we did on the previous round and then
continue to work and we will do one double crochet into the next four stitches again.
So that is one, two, three, four and you can see we have come up and over, down, skipped
two, and then continued to work our stitches and now we are going to do again, what we
did on this side and that is two double crochets into the next three stitches. So there is
one stitch, the second stitch there and the third stitch there. There’s one, two, three,
four, five, six and I counted six then that is what I naturally do so sorry if that confused
you but it was because I did two double crochets into the next three stitches and to me it
is just easier to count six I know how many I should have done there, that is why I counted
six. So I have done those two double crochets into the next three stitches and I will do
one double crochet into the next six stitches. So one, two, three, four, five, six and that
brings us to that two chain space. If I put the hook in you can see that it’s a two chain
space there and we are going to repeat what we did on the previous round. So one double
crochet into the two chain space, two chains and then one more double crochet into that
same space. Now we will do one double crochet into the next six stitches. That’s one, two,
three, four, five, six and because I put that stitch marker in there I know that I am now
back into the right place I am going to pull the stitch marker up and over so that now
when I get back round for the third time I know I will be ending up in the right place
again. OK, so onto round three. This time we are going to do two double crochets into
the next stitch and one double crochet into the next stitch along and we will repeat that
two more times. So in total we are going to do three lost of two double crochets into
the next stitch and then one double crochet into the next stitch, then that will be two
double crochets, one double crochet, two double crochets and one double crochet. So two double
crochets into the next stitch, one double crochet into the next stitch, two double crochets
into the next stitch and one double crochet into the next stitch and then we will do that
once more, two double crochets into the next stitch and then one double crochet into the
next stitch. OK, so that brings us around nicely to bring that heart curved shape there.
And now will do one double crochet into the next three stitches. One, two, three. That
brings us to those two s titches in the middle which we now need to skip and then we will
do one double crochet into the next four stitches after we skip two. So that is one, two we
have skipped and then start again into that third one along and we will do one double
crochet into the next four stitches so that is one, two, three, four. OK so now we need
to repeat that two one, two one, two one on this side so we will do two double crochets
into the next stitch, one double crochet into the next stitch, two double crochets into
the next stitch, one double crochet into the next stitch and then one more time two double
crochets into the next stitch and one double crochet into the next stitch and that brings
us around nicely . So now we need to do one double crochet into the next six stitches.
One, two, three, four, five, six and then again into that two chain space we need to
do one double crochet, two chains and one double crochet again into that same space
and now we need to do one double crochet into the next seven stitches. So that is one, two,
three, four, five, six, seven and there is my handy stitch marker so again I know I am
in the right place and now I am going to bring that forward just to remind me where I need
to finish up. So I have the heart upside down, I will just turn it around the right way and
you can see it is really taking shape now. So we will do our final round. We start this
fourth round by just doing one double crochet into the next stitch, like that, and now we
need to do two double crochets into the next stitch and then one double crochet into the
next two stitches and we do that three times altogether. So that will be two into that
one, one into that one and one into that one, two, one, one, two, one, one. One, two into
the next stitch, then one into the next two stitches, two into the next stitch, one into
the next two stitches, two into the next stitch, one into the next two stitches. So we have
done our increase on that round part and that brings it around nice and smoothly. Then we
have one double crochet to do before we have two to skip. OK, to there are the two to skip
and we now need to do one double crochet into the next three stitches, one, two, three and
now we need to this again on this side so that is two double crochets into the next
stitch, one double crochet into the next two stitches and again two into the next, one
into the next two, two into the next stitch and one into the next two stitches. Now we
need to do one double crochet into the next seven stitches, one, two, three, four, five
six seven and now we have to do that same again, one double crochet into that two chain
space, two chains and one double crochet again into that same two chain space and now we
will do our final part which is doing one double crochet into the next eight stitches.
That’s one, two, three, four, five, six, seven eight. And now I am back to the right place,
because I am back to my stitch marker which I will now take out. It just pulls our nice
and easily and there is one side of your heart done. So now you need to make another one.
So what we will do here is to fasten off my yarn and cut my yarn. Fasten it off with a
nice tight knot. Now I will sew in my ends. Just weave those into the back of your work
and you need to make sure that it will not show on the other side and then you don’t
need to worry too much but don’t cut it off at the base but just so that it does not hang
over the edge of your heart. That is one side of my heart done and when you make another
one, what you do is, you don’t stop you just keep going because now we are going to join
the two sides together. OK so by the magic of editing I have my two sides made now and
as you can see I have not fastened off the yarn on the second side but I have just woven
in that tail end and just trimmed it off like I did on the first part. Now we need to do
is take the two heart sides with the wrong sides facing, so that is the two sides that
have the tail ends showing, that is the wrong side and you put those two together, like
that. Now we will crochet the two sides together so you need to make sure that you keep them
in the right place and if it helpful you can just make a tacking stitch if that makes it
easier for you but I find it is easier just to do it. So holding them together you need
to put the hook down through the next stitch and through the back, like that, so that you
are now crocheting the two sides together and I am going to do a slip stitch here and
then I do one chain and I do a double crochet into that same stitch just to get it started.
And then slowly make your way around, take your time, it’s a bit difficult if you have
never done it before. Not really difficult just a little bit fiddly but just take your
time and make sure you are not skipping any of those stitches, so make sure you get through
all of those stitches and then I am going to come back when I get to this point here
because I am going to show you how to make the loop part. So I have come down into the
middle part and I am just going to do one more stitch there I think and then into that
space there where we skipped the stitches I am going to do another double crochet and
then I am going to chain twenty one. You can chain as many as you like but if its an odd
number I find it’s better and then you just do a slip stitch, through that space there,
she says, like that and that makes it so that you can hang it up and then you continue doing
your double crochets through both sides of the heart and I am going to come back when
I get to this point down here. OK so I am down to this point here which is the bottom
of the heart so I am going to do two stitches into that point there so that it does not
pull when I start doing this side. I will stop there now because I want to add the stuffing
into the heart and I have left a hole there so I will grab some stuffing and put in as
much as you want. You might want it to be fairly flat. If you did not want it to be
too thick you could possibly cut a piece of felt and have that in there instead of the
wadding, if that is what you have to hand. There are different things that you can use
and put in as much as you want. You can make it as puffy or flat as you like. You could
even make this into a pin cushion, just thinking about all the different things you could do.
You don’t have to do it that way. You could just keep going round the edge and turn it
into a pin cushion and that would be a nice gift for someone as well. So that I think
is probably as much stuffing as I want to put in there. Yes that is enough for me and
I am just going to now finish that up by crocheting along that final edge and I will come back
when I have sewn the ends in. So there we go. I have made a 3-D puffed little heart
and I think and you may hopefully agree, it’s adorable. I did this in this blue colour just
because I did it in a red colour. I will show you what I did and you cannot see the stitches
very well. In the camera, to me, it looks all blown out so I am glad I went ahead and
did it in the blue because I think you can see the stitches better in the blue than you
can in the red. Only up close can you see it and that is probably blinding you. I cannot
remember if I mentioned it but you could probably put a little bead on there. a little decorative
bead. You could thread that loop through, I would have to have a wide hole in the bead
I suppose but you could just put a little bead as a decoration and you have a lovely
cut little heart hanging decoration. And you can use these throughout the year. These would
be a great little gift to give to someone or just to decorate your home with so I really
hope you enjoyed this project. If you did I would love you to give me a thumbs up and
if you didn’t, please tell me why and we can probably do something about that, hopefully.
Please tell me if you make this project, I would love to know. Please subscribe to my

  1. Love the heart, plan to make the loop bigger and attach to a lovely pair of embroidery scissors as a pin cushion xxx just like to mention i am 69 years old and although my mother taught me to knit, she could not crochet so neither could I. That is until I found you….thank you very much Pat xxx

  2. Great gift for anyone just add a small bell or ribbon for a great tree decoration. Lots of counting would not cope without the tutorial. Great stuff.

  3. Your timing on this video couldn't have been better, Olivia.  I've been looking for a quick puffy heart pattern and wa-la!  You deliver!  Thanks for including the link to the written pattern, too.  Love your videos.  Thanks for all you do to make them.

  4. Hi Olivia, Thank you so much for this tutorial I am working on it now, sorry I haven't thanked you sooner sadly I've been having a catch up with my old friend depression, but crochet and gardening keep me going. Have a lovely Christmas and a wonderful new year. All the best Tracy. x

  5. Hi I've just come across girlybunches and already I've made all your flowers 😀 I was wondering with the heart is there a way to make it bigger? Many thanks.

  9. Very nice I make 3 hearts as pin cushion. 2 I made a liner for then stuffed them the 3rd was for me , I didn't make a liner I just stuffed it I like the lined ones better they are fatter Thank you for the tutorial. I have subscribed and save your site.

  10. I am talking here about the first round because I just started watching this, but I must say that you keep calling those "Double crochet" and they are not. For what I know a double crochet means that you have to yarn over, get into the stitch, yarn over through the stitch, yarn over through the first two loops on the needle an then again into the next loops. This isn't what you are doing.

  11. Thank you SO much! I've tried to do 5 other versions of a heart from other youtube videos and I just couldn't manage it (I am a real beginner!!). Yours was done very well, and for the most part I could follow exactly what to do. If you could point to every stitch a little slower, that would be helpful on the trickier areas, like that first time around the corner it was a little too quick for me to see where the stitch was that I was supposed to go into (I did seem to figure it out). Blessings 🙂

  12. I really love your video. Except you are calling it a double crochet, not what inlearned as a DC. Maybe that is what the English crochet way. Would love this pattern in writing. Thank you so much. You do beautiful world!🙂🙂🙂

  16. If I keep going one more round, I mean, want to bigger….does it work???Can it keep still nice heart shape??

  17. There is something wrong with your counting. The first round total of 10 sc, then 3 sc in each one you crochet 3 sc and then 4 chain spaces you skip does not equal 15 chains at the beginning

  18. Hi – Would like thank you for the pattern. I was following another video and was totally confused with it, I almost tried for 20 mins but couldn't understand. Then I came across your video which was easy to understand. And, I finally could make a lovely red heart. Thanks to you.
