Crochet Heart – Easy C2C (corner to corner) Heart Square pattern

Crochet Heart For C2C (Corner to Corner) Square

A Crochet Heart seemed like a fun project to make . Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I wanted to make a project to go with that special day of love. During this last couple of months I have been busy making blankets for grandkids. I was starting to look around for a blanket I could make for my granddaughter. I didn’t want the regular blanket. I wanted to come up with something cute and that says how much I love her. This might be the answer. My square is almost ready. I just need to sew in the yarn tails.

Crochet Heart Square

Crochet C2C Heart Square

Here I made a  Crochet heart square using the C2C (Corner to Corner) technique.   This is an easier graph / graphic because there are only 2 colors.  (Red and white) and the color changes are minimal.   This square could be used for a pillow/cushion cover or making several more squares and sewing them together I could turn it into an afghan or blanket.   Each square measures approximately 12 inches.   I designed this graph to be easy to use and work up fast.  If you want to learn how to create your own heart graph please see my post:  How to make a heart graph without fancy software.   In this post I explain how you can create simple graphs and use those for your C2C projects.

The photo above shows the square without being blocked yet.  I will be adding 2 rows of sc around the edges.  (working 3 sc in each corner)   This will give me something to hold onto while sewing the front to the back panel (all white for back).  I will purchase a 12 inch pillow form.  This will make a cute Valentine’s day gift.    The cuteness factor is off the charts.  You could even embroider a message on the heart such as “I love you”  “Be Mine”   etc.

I added the arrows to help keep you on track.  It’s super easy to get confused as to which row you are working on.  If it helps you can put a little stitch marker on the right side of the work.   I hope you enjoy this project.   I downloaded the graph paper from Sarah Zimmerman’s blog.  RepeatCrafterMe   She has a ton of cute projects and she had a blank graph sheet that worked out perfectly for this project.   Using the graph sheets is a great way to design your own squares.  I came up with this design because I wanted to make something for Valentine’s Day.  Yes, Love is in the air!

Materials you will need for your Crochet Heart

Scissors

Yarn needle to sew in tails

Medium weight yarn in 2 colors,   White and Red (You can choose your own colors if you prefer)

Crochet Hook G /  6  4.00mm  (the hook I used says G but it is actually 4.25mm and it still worked).

Squares measure approximately  12 inches.  Are you ready?  Ok,  “Let’s Get The Party Started!”   Keep reading for complete instructions.

Heart Graph for C2C (corner to corner)

Heart Graph for Crochet C2C

W= white

R= Red

To begin:    I used 2 separate balls of white yarn (on on each opposite side of the red color changes).  This allowed meant that I didn’t have to cut the white yarn.  I just dropped the white yarn and picked up the red when called for in the graph and visa versa with the red yarn.    I only used 1 ball of red yarn.  I only had to cut it once after working row 18 red squares  and re-attach it later on the red color change on row 21.  After completing all your work you will need to sew in your tails.

INCREASE ROWS  (work in the direction of the arrows on the graph)

2:  2W

3:  3W

4:  4W

5:  5W

6:  6W

12: 3W, 7R,  2W

13: 4W, 7R, 2W

14:  2W, 8R, 4W

15:  5W, 7R, 3W

DECREASE ROWS

16: 2W, 8R, 4W

17: 4W, 7R, 2W

18: 2W, 7R, 3W

19:  3W, 4R, 4W

20: 3W, 5R, 2W

21:  2W, 4R, 3W

22: 2W, 4R, 2W

24: 2W, 2R, 2W

25: 5W

26: 4W

27: 3W

28: 2W

29:  1W

I uploaded a  video tutorial explaining how to increase (work the C2C) and how to change colors, and then finally the decreases.   It is not a row by row, meaning not all 29 rows are shown.   It should give you an idea on how to work a C2C and how I picked up and changed colors.    To view the video click on the next page.    Please visit my YouTube channel for other great video tutorials:   http://www.youtube.com/user/yolandasotolopez

    Survey did not show up but I love your idea. Your teaching is great as o can follow your direction very easily. I have made several projects I would not have tried had it not been for you.

    Can you do this as a baby blanket as well? If so how would I make the graph look as amazing as yours?

    • Yolanda May 25, 2016 at 2:42 pm #

      Yes, you could make it larger with one big heart or lots of smaller hearts. I would just print out the graph and see which works best for you. If you want each square to have a heart you could tape all the pieces of paper together and work off of that as a blanket with lots of squares. or make your own graph. I wrote a blog post on how to make your own graph.

      THank you for sharing it.

  12. Yolanda August 22, 2016 at 12:00 pm #

    I’m sorry you got confused. The graph I shared was part of a couple of posts on which I shared how I create my own graphs using graph paper and not any type of software.
    I’m happy to hear you were able to figure it out. Thanks for the input.
