Crochet Valentine garland

This sweet, free crochet Valentine garland pattern uses three dimensional crochet hearts in three colors. The hearts are crocheted separately and then attached to a crochet chain as you go. Make one for your own home to decorate for the holiday or make one as a gift for a loved one. You could surprise them by decorating their room, home, or office space!

You could also include other shapes in the same color palette, like flowers from my Gardens Galore Garland crochet pattern, or tassels.

What yarn should I use?

I highly recommend Cascade Yarns Anthem, which is what I used for mine. Cascade Yarns was kind enough to provide the yarn for this design. This is a soft, premium acrylic yarn in a worsted weight. I used one skein each of #03 Red, #09 Pink, #38 Lemon, and #08 White.

What else will I need?

You will also need a size H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook, three locking stitch markers, poly-fil stuffing, and a yarn needle.

Difficulty Level: Easy+

Finished Measurements: Hearts about 3 inches long x 2 1/2 inches wide.

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Anthem (100% Acrylic; 186 yds; 100 g; weight category 4/medium): #03 Red, 1 skein; #09 Pink, 1 skein; #38 Lemon, 1 skein; #08 White, 1 skein.

Crochet Hook: H/8 (5 mm), or size needed to obtain gauge.

Notions: 3 locking st markers (m), polyester fiber-fil, yarn needle.

Gauge is not critical for this project, but you can check the size of your finished hearts against the finished measurements above.

Notes:

This pattern is written in standard US terms.

When making hearts, work tightly. Hearts are worked in the round without joining or turning at the end of rnds. Hearts are made separately. The garland is put together by making a long chain that is stitched to the hearts as you make the chain.
