{Crochet} Granny Heart Tutorial

granny square heart

Hello Crochet Heart Granny Square lovers! I have had so many people ask for a tutorial for this square that i thought it was time to write one. I’ve included a brief explanation of how i like to change colours. Enjoy! xx

Yarn – Patons Cotton Blend 8ply
Hook Size – 3.5mm hook
Measurement – approx. 10cm square
You will need
•  (A) pink, (B) Aqua
• 3.5mm crochet hook
• tapestry needle

The start of your square is like any other granny square. In fact the first two rounds are worked in a single colour – pink. I like my granny squares to be nice and compact, so i don’t have any chains in between the tr clusters and only 1ch at the corners. Feel free to add 1ch in between the clusters and 2 to 3 chs at the corners if that is your prefernce.

If you’re confident with making granny squares and changing colour, you can simply use the guide in the square below. Otherwise, scroll down for step by step instructions.

  1. Thank you for a lovely pattern. I’ll be using this to make a lap blanket for my, soon -to- be 98 years old, Mother for her birthday. She loves all things hand made, and this pattern would be wonderful in her favorite colors. Thank you again!

    • You’re very welcome. I hope the instructions are clear enough. There are a lot of ends to sew in, but i think it’s worth it. Mandyxx

  2. I love this little square and want to make it. I’m adding it to my treasury of patterns I want to try out. So much life… so little time! But I WILL definitely make this one. Thank you so much for the tutorial. Marilyn from Oregon

  3. Great pattern very clear thank you. Can I just ask everyone how they deal with the ends, I cut & changed wool & ended up with a load of ends!! However I do have a beautiful heart granny aquare so maybe you can’t have it all!! ?

    • Yes, sadly you have a lot of end to deal with. You have the option not to cut your yarn and just pick up each colour as you need it, but it gets a bit messy on the back. I prefer to cut. :)

      • Thanks, yes I tried the keeping them thing & didn’t like the look of it so o went back to the having lots of ends. Thanks for the pattern again, I love it.

  4. Hi! Sorry I’m lost. Is your pattern in U.K terms or US terms?
    Also, for the first round does the treble go into the third or second chain?

    • Hello Shirlyn,
      My patterns are usually in UK terms – i sometimes have US at the bottom. Sorry for my late reply. I hope you’ve worked it out. :)

  5. I saw this pattern last night whilst searching the web for ideas as my crochet club are making throws for the less fortunate. I found it stunning. Blessings. J
