Spiral Rose Heart - Free Crochet Pattern (with video)

Simple, quick and easy to make, this 3D swirly heart spirals out from the center like a rose. Makes a pretty applique for hats, bags, pillows, baby items, and more. Or a cute Valentine's gift! Only simple stitches are used (sc, hdc, sl st). Written instructions are posted below, as well as a video.


Materials: Yarn: worsted weight (small amount). Hook: G (or size of choice)
Definitions: FLO=Front Loops Only; BLO=Back Loops Only
Pattern:
1) Ch 2.
2) Make 6 sc in 2nd ch frm hk. (don't join - work in the round)
3) Sc FLO into ea st around (6 sc total)
4) Working into the same sts again, make 2 sc BLO in ea st around (12 sc total)
5) Working into the horizontal thread behind the sts made in step 4, make: Sc, hdc, sc in next (this is the bottom point of the heart); 2 sc in next; sc 1 + hdc 1 in next; hdc 1 + sc 1 in next. Ch 1, sl st into the horizontal thread behind the next st on the row below (on back near center of heart). (22 sts total from center of spiral to end, incl ch 1).
6) Ch 1, turn. Sc around to the bottom point of heart. Ch 1 at bottom point. Continue to sc around to the top of heart. Continue to sc around the spiral. Sl st into the last 2 sc in the center of the spiral.
7) End off (leave long tail for sewing). Pull the tail through the center of the heart to the back. Use it to sew the heart to something.

Thank you so much. Your pattern is so much simpler and easier to understand than the last one I tried.

This is so cute! I wasn't sure if I was following the pattern correctly because I could see neither a rose or a heart but it finally became both almost as if by magic towards the end. So, if you think you might not be doing it correctly - keep going! It turns out exactly as shown and suddenly you realize how easy it is and your rose/heart is complete. To the author; thank you so much for sharing your adorable little pattern with all of us! I look forward to using this on numerous projects. <3
