Crochet Pattern: Short and Simple Heart Scarf

Row 1: ch 18, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across: 17 sc

Rows 2 – 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 17 sc

Row 4: ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (ch 1, skip next sc, sc in next sc) across, ending with a sc in last sc: 9 sc, 8 ch

Row 5: ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (sc in next ch, sc in next sc), across: 17 sc

Rows 6 – 7: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 17 sc

Continue repeating Rows 4-7 until your scarf measures 38 inches long

The applique sewn on each end of the scarf is from this pattern here: Sweetheart Valentine Heart, with just Rows 1-3, fingering weight yarn and an E hook. Leave a tail approx. 12″ long for sewing.

Tips for sewing on your applique hearts:

1) Pin your heart with the bottom point right above the center middle of the end of the scarf and both lobes at around the 14th row from end or however it looks best to you.

2) Put your needle through the heart and through half of the scarf then bring it back up along the heart and under it. This way the yarn won’t show on the opposite side.

3) Pull your heart into it’s shape every few stitches so it won’t bunch up during sewing.

Finish off, weave in all ends. Make it pretty!

    That’s a really cute application for that … applique! 🙂 I don’t know that I’d have thought to put such a large accent on a piece as small as a scarf, but your photo shows that it works! Thanks for the great ideas. 🙂

    This is gorgeous, how cute and how original!

  3. Beth says:

    How about leaving the top of the heart open so that it becomes a pocketed scarf?!

  4. Irma says:

    It is so nice, just want to know can one make the pattern biger for a heart shape rug?

  5. packrat1 says:

    I think my niece would love this. I guess I’d have to make several though as she and her friends like to match. 🙂

  6. Sarah Dee says:

    I like the stitch pattern for the scarf itself, but I’m not a fan of the heart.

  7. maggie says:

    I’m making this for my cousin, only since it’s a Christmas present, I’ll be using the snowman applique, which I’m making now (it’s looking good, although I’m pretty sure I’ve left the pattern a million times. )

    Umm, mine’s shrinking…

  9. maggie says:

    correction. now it’s growing.. am I adding stitches or something? because now it looks like the base of a pyramid.

    • Rachel says:

      Maggie, it is very possible that you are adding stitches. After completing each row, try counting the number of stitches you made before going onto the next row.

    how about making a cute purse out of just the heat or just the heart on a background; could be the tooth fairy pillow.
