Mini Valentines Heart Pattern

Hello friends! It's Friday! That means that it's time for a new pattern!! As promised, today we get to learn how to make a very small crochet heart! This little heart is the perfect companion to many of the patterns that we've made together on the blog so far. I think this heart is also quite cute on many different plushes, or just on it's own. As a bonus, it really makes plushies perfect for Valentines Day or anniversaries! If you wanted, you could also just add a key ring to the heart and make it a super cute keychain or backpack charm!

All you'll need is a small amount of yarn an a little bit of time. So, let's jump into this week's pattern, shall we?

When you're done, your heart may look a little misshapen, like this one below, but don't worry! All you have to do is squish and massage it into shape and it should look just right.(:
