This Valentine’s Day, tell that special someone “I love you with all my heart” with this beautiful crochet heart blanket. This handmade one-of-a-kind Valentine’s gift will show just how much you care, with its cozy softness and lovely heart details.

 

And best of all, this easy crochet blanket pattern is completely customizable. While I made a throw blanket size, you can easily make it larger…just add more hearts! And choose any colors you like, and vary the number of open hearts and bobble hearts, to make it your own. Essentially, you can personalize this blanket to your heart’s content! ❤️

Crochet Stitches

This crochet blanket pattern uses the half-double crochet, double crochet, bobble stitch, and X-stitch…but no worries, I’ve included a tutorial showing you all the stitches! In addition, there is a stitch in row 12 of the open heart where you may want to refer to the video at 10:55. It’s easy, but a little confusing to explain here in print.

  • Approx 1700 yards of #4/worsted weight yarn
  • J-10/6-mm hook

Border around each heart

Working around each heart, make one hdc st in each st along the top and bottom and 20 hdc along each side (space them evenly as best as possible), with 3 hdc in each corner st. This should equal 108 stitches around each heart.

 

Crocheting hearts together

Before crocheting all the hearts together, I’d recommend laying all your hearts out (I found that I needed to do this on the floor, for a large enough space). This way, you can rearrange your design of open hearts and bobble hearts and colors as much as you’d like before it’s all stitched together. Then, once you’ve decided on a design you like, take a photo of it. You’ll need to refer to this photo later, when you’re putting it all together. Trust me on this.

Next, crochet the “squares” into horizontal rows first, then crochet the rows together.

To crochet the hearts together, with the front side facing up, join them with a single crochet, making sure to go through all four loops (two loops from each “square”).

Blanket Border

Once all the “squares” are crocheted together, it’s time to make a border for the entire blanket.

 

As I mentioned above in the Notes section, due to the fact that this blanket is customizable to larger sizes, no total stitch numbers are given for the border. That being said, the border is made in three rows.

Row 1: Ch 2, then hdc in each st all the way around the entire border, making 3 hdc in each corner st.

 

Row 2: Crochet an X-stitch (there is a tutorial for this stitch in my video @ 8:15). To start, ch 3, then dc in the previous st, *skip one st, then dc in next st, then dc in previous stitch*, then skip one st…continue from * to * all the way around the blanket.

 

Row 3: Ch 2, then hdc in each space all the way around, making 3 hdc in each corner space. Each hdc will be made in the space in the center of each X and between the X’s (refer to the video @ 10:55 for clarification).

 

You’re finished! Get cozy and feel the love! ❤️
