Free Crochet Heart Cushion Pattern – Pattern Notes

Skill level: intermediate crochet skills and knowledge

Terminology: US crochet terminology

Finished size: height – 24cm (9.5″), width – 28cm (11″) when using a 4mm = G/6 hook and Bulky #5 = Chunky yarn

Gauge (4″ x 4″): 16 rounds x 16 stitches

Note: this pattern is worked in continous rounds, which means you will not slip stitch at the end of each round. Instead you will continue to crochet the next round in the next stitch.

 

Free Crochet Heart Cushion Pattern – Materials and Tools Needed

Yarn: I recommend using a velvet/baby yarn for extra soft plush feel. But you can also use 100% acrylic or a blend of acrylic and wool. I also recommend using this yarn weight: Bulky #5 = Chunky but the pattern will also work with Super Bulky #6 = Super Chunky.

 

I used:

– Bulky #5 = Chunky

– 100% polyester

– 1x ball of red yarn for one heart – James C. Brett Flutterby Chunky – colour B31 – (100g/175m)

– 1x ball of pink yarn for the other heart – James C. Brett Flutterby Chunky – colour B47 – (100g/175m)

– one ball is just about enough to crochet the heart so keep your tails short when starting the magic rings

 

Crochet hook: I used 4mm = G/6 but refer to the instructions on your yarn label if using different weight of yarn. I recommend this crochet hook set that includes many crochet hook sizes but also yarn needles, stitch markers and other handy bits.

 

Tools used: scissors, yarn needle, stitch marker, polyester stuffing

 

Free Crochet Heart Cushion Pattern – Crochet Terminology Used

This free crochet heart cushion pattern is written using US crochet terminology. Download my free Crochet Terminology Chart for UK terms here. You can print it and keep forever so you always have it to hand.

R: row or round

MR: magic ring

ST: stitch

CH: chain stitch – yarn over and pull through

SS: slip stitch

SC: single crochet stitch

INC: increase = two stitches in the same stitch

INV DEC: invisible decrease = insert the hook into the front loop of the first stitch (two loops on hook) and immediately insert it again into the front loop of the next stitch (three loops on the hook). Yarn over and draw through the first two loops on the hook (two loops on the hook). Yarn over and draw through the two loops on the hook to finish your invisible decrease.

FO: fasten off

(…..) x 6: repeat the pattern inside the brackets by the given number (in this example, repeat the pattern in the brackets 6 times)

{…}: number shown inside these brackets equals the number of total stitches at the end of each round/row

– Crochet the cushion in a continous round, do not slip stitch at the end of each round. Instead continue to crochet the next round in the next stitch.

– You will be using the single crochet stitch (SC), single crochet increase (INC) and invisible single crochet decrease (INV DEC).

– Crochet 2 separate circles that will form the top of the heart first; join these two circles together and continue to crochet the bottom part of the heart.

– I recommend using a longer piece of string as a running stitch marker so you can easily go back and count the number of rounds. Either way, a stitch marker is a must when working in continous rounds.

– If you are struggling to see the stitches when working with the velvet/baby yarn then you can double the yarn with a thinner yarn such as Superfine #1 = 3ply. This will make the stitches more visible.

 

 

Free Crochet Heart Cushion Pattern – Top Part

Crochet two separate circles (cups) using the bellow pattern – R1 to R15:

R1: MR – 6 x SC into the ring {6} – watch this step by step video tutorial on How to crochet a magic ring

If you have a struggle closing the magic ring when using the velvet yarn, then you can do this instead of using MR: CH3, SS into 1st CH to create a circle and 6x SC into the circle

R2: INC in each ST around {12}

R3: (SC in next ST, INC) x 6 {18}

R4: SC in next ST, INC, (SC in next 2 ST, INC) x 5, SC in next ST {24}

R5: (SC in next 3 ST, INC) x 6 {30}

R6: SC in next 2 ST, INC, (SC in next 4 ST, INC) x 5, SC in next 2 ST {36}

R7: (SC in next 5 ST, INC) x 6 {42}

R8: SC in next 3 ST, INC, (SC in next 6 ST, INC) x 5, SC in next 3 ST {48}

R9: (SC in next 7 ST, INC) x 6 {54}

R10: SC in next 4 ST, INC, (SC in next 8 ST, INC) x 5, SC in next 4 ST {60}

R11: (SC in next 9 ST, INC) x 6 {66}

R12: SC in next 5 ST, INC, (SC in next 10 ST, INC) x 5, SC in next 5 ST {72}

R13-R15 (3 rounds): SC in each ST around {72}

First circle (cup) – FO after R15 and cut the yarn leaving a longer tail for sewing; insert a stitch marker into the first stitch of R15

Second circle (cup) – don’t FO and don’t cut the yarn off; insert a stitch marker into ST38 of R15; leave your hook in and join the two circles together as per the instructions below

 

How to join the two circles (cups) together

R16: continue from where you finished with R15 in the second circle:

– SC in next 37 ST in the second circle

– insert your hook into the first circle – into the stitch with the stitch marker in it – and SC (Pic 1 & 2)

– SC in next 71 ST in the first circle (Pic 3)

– insert your hook back into the second circle – into the stitch with the stitch marker in it – and SC (Pic 4 & 5)

– SC in next 34 ST (Pic 6) {144}

– you have now joined the two circles together and will continue to crochet the heart in a continuous round – dont worry about the little gap in between the circles, you will close it at a later stage

Free Crochet Heart Cushion Pattern – Bottom Part

R17: 1x INV DEC, SC in next 33 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 33 ST, 1x INV DEC, SC in next 33 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 33 ST {138} – watch this step by step video tutorial on How to crochet an invisible decrease

R18: SC in next 33 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 65 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 32 ST {134} (Pic 7)

R19: SC in next 32 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 63 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 31 ST {130}

R20: SC in next 31 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 61 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 30 ST {126}

R21: 1x INV DEC, SC in next 28 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 28 ST, 1x INV DEC, SC in next 29 ST, 2x INV DEC, SC in next 29 ST {120}

You can now close the gap in between the two circles:

– thread a yarn needle with the yarn tail you have left after you completed the first circle

– close the gap with a few stitches on the inside; stitches don’t need to be too neat as the velvet yarn is very forgiving and you won’t really see the stitches anyway. Weave the yarn tail in.
