Crochet Pattern: Heart Pendant

By Candace – 14 Comments
You could wear your heart on your sleeve–or you could dangle it from you neck, which is slightly more anatomically correct. If you’d rather not loop a chain through the bail, you can make the final chain long enough to fit around your neck instead. The pendant can also be stiffened with starch. crochet_heart_pendant

Finished Size: 1″ (2.5 cm) wide, 1 1/4″ (3 cm) tall (including bail)

Size 5 thread (Approximately 5 yards)
Crochet Hook B (2.25 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

Rounds 1 – 3 in patterns measure 1″ (2.5 cm) wide and 1 1/4″ (3 cm) tall

    Hi! Nice pattern. I have been making heart necklaces for 1st graders. I wanted something really fast. Didn’t need to be a good job just quick. Sooo. I used worsted weight and a J hook.
    Leave long tail
    Ch 3, sl st to join,
    Ch 2, 9 hdc in ring, join with sl st to beg ch2
    Ch3, 2trc in same stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch, 1hdc and 1 dc in next stitch, 1 trc, picot ( = ch3, sl st to beg ch), trc in next stitch, 1dc and 1 hdc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, 2 trc and 1 dc in next stitch , sl st to beg chain.
    Finish off leaving long tail. Draw beginning tail thru ending stitch.
    Tie both tails to necklace length.

    It’s not as fine/pretty as yours but works in 2 rounds and very quick.

    THANKS for another FAB crochet pattern. I’ve crocheted many heart necklaces for gifts for several grandnieces in the past few years. But this one is smaller & I like the pale pink yarn. However, I do NOT own a hook B, so I may use the smallest — it’s a ‘C.’ Sarah Helene in Minneapolis, MN

    i’m just learning to crochet. i’ve made a few things but this is my first time trying to read a pattern on my own. i think i have the magic loop, ch 2, 6 dhc right but i’m confused on the next part. when i slip into the original ch 2 where do the next 6 dhc go?

      I think you’re misunderstanding the pattern format. The text after the colon is the stitch count. Hope that helps.
