Crochet Tapestry Heart Square- Free Pattern in Two Sizes

The Tapestry Hearts are two separate sizes of crochet squares worked in Tapestry Crochet

Valentines Day is coming up soon! It’s a great time for making heart-themed crochet projects like today’s crochet squares. They both feature multiple colors and a simple, centered heart.  

These tapestry heart squares are two different sized squares that can be made for a variety of different projects. Originally, the larger square is being featured as part of the Friendship Blanket Squares CAL hosted by Sunflower Cottage Crochet. You can find more information about this CAL(Crochet-a-long) HERE.

About These Crochet Squares

The idea behind creating these squares is to provide a sweet starting point for lots of different projects. Using tapestry crochet means that they will be a on the thicker side. 

The small tapestry heart could easily be made on it’s own for a Valentines Coaster, while the large square would work beautifully as the front of a pillow or a bag. Additionally, either size would make a lovely (and warm) blanket, on their own or with other squares like in the squares CAL.

Sizing 

The small version of this heart square works up to be 4×4”, and only uses two colors of yarn. 

The larger version, which uses the same gauge but has it’s own separate pattern should end up being 9×9”, When done as written. It uses three colors of yarn and outlines the center heart in a nice “frame” with the third color.

Gauge

The gauge for both of these squares, the gauge is as follows: 12 stitches x 12 rows= a 4×4″ square”. For help with your crochet gauge, check out my free guide to gauge.

Materials Needed

To make one of these heart squares, you will need the following: 

  • Aran or heavy worsted weight yarn(up to 20 total yards for the small square and 60 total yards for the large).
  • H/5.00mm hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Note: The pattern itself includes a breakdown for each square about how much of each color you will need. 

SKill Level

As tapestry crochet projects, these heart squares are not difficult at all. If you happen to be new to tapestry crochet, they would actually make a good first project(I would suggest starting with the smaller square since it only uses two colors).
