Rainbow Heart Crochet Pattern

I’ve been so inspired by the #yarnfriendsrock prompts over on instagram, you should totally go check it out if you haven’t already! For day 23 of the challenge the prompt was “rainbow love”. I’m not usually one for rainbows, so I rummaged through my scraps box and managed to pull together a muted rainbow and decided to design a heart!



The heart ends up a little wavy, but I think it would make a great applique to a blanket – perhaps a grey moss stitch square with a back post half double crochet border to match the heart! Ooo! That would be so cute! I guess that’s being added to my endless list of blanket ideas!


You will need:

  • Yarn – I used scraps of aran weight yarn

  • A crochet hook – I used a 5.5mm hook

  • Scissors

  • Yarn needle

  • Something to watch or listen to while you crochet!

Stitches you will need to know:

  • Magic ring

  • Chain

  • Single crochet

  • Half double crochet

  • Double crochet

  • Treble crochet

  • Working in the back loop

  • Back post stitches
