I have a new crochet pattern to share with you all today, and it’s the perfect little project for Valentine’s Day! These cute crochet heart pouches are simple enough to work up a whole bunch before heart day.
I made these heart pouches with the new Darice cotton yarn, and it worked great. It’s a nice, inexpensive workhorse of a yarn that’s perfect for small projects like this.
These pouches are small – probably only big enough to hold a few little candies or other small treats – but you could try using a heavier weight yarn and larger hook for a bigger heart. Now, I need to give that a try!

Crochet Stitches Used:
- Chain (ch)
- Slip Stitch (sl st)
- Single Crochet (sc)
- Half Double Crochet (hdc)
- Double Crochet (dc)
- Treble Crochet (trc)
Special Crochet Stitches Used:
Single Crochet Spike Stitch (sc spike): The single crochet spike stitch is an elongated single crochet that is worked into a lower round instead of the previous round. Insert your hook into the stitch indicated, draw up a loop, and pull the yarn up to the height of the working yarn. Yarn over, and pull the yarn through both loops to finish the sc spike.
Half Treble Crochet (htr): This stitch is between a double and treble crochet stitch in height. It begins like a treble crochet by wrapping the yarn around your hook twice. Next, insert hook into indicated stitch and yarn over (four loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through two loops (three loops on hook). Finally, yarn over and draw through all loops. Half treble crochet formed.

Crochet Heart Pouch Assembly
At this point you should have two crochet heart shapes, one with a loop and one without. Next, sew a button onto the front of the heart without the loop using your needle and thread. I recommend placing the with the loop behind the loop-less heart to help you measure where the button should be placed. My button was attached just a bit above the heart’s center.
After the button is attached, place the two hearts together with their wrong sides together. Then, insert your crochet hook 8 stitches to the left of the center of the heart going through both hearts (see the image below).
Work one single crochet stitch in each stitch around the heart until you get to the eighth stitch to the right of the center of the heart on the other side. On the bottom point of the heart, work a single crochet stitch, chain one, and another single crochet in the same space to create a more pointed shape.
When you get to the last stitch (the eighth to the right of the heart center), you can finish off the yarn at that point OR you can create a long chain strap as I did. To create the strap, simply chain a long chain (I did 160 chains for mine), and then slip stitch the chain to your beginning single crochet used to sew the pouch together. Finally, finish off your yarn and weave in the ends.
And that’s it! If you make your own little heart pouch, I want to see it! You can share photos to my facebook page or tag me on instagram. <3
As always, Happy Making!

I am just finishing up your Hawthorne Afghan. I love the blanket! I did have trouble with the pattern (probably due to my inexperience). When I changed from the double crochet to the fan stitch – it seems I somehow got extra stitches in there? I made it work when I got to the other end. But I am still not sure what (if anything) I did wrong….
I would love to have it, but the link to get the free pattern for the crochet heart pouch does not work.
Sometimes I cannot open the site, have others experienced that too?
Now I can reach the site but cannot reach the heart pouch pattern. Can you please send it in email?
Love to hear from you!
These crochet heart purses are so cute. I think they would be great crafts for my teen to make and sell. Thanks for the idea.
