**this square measures 5 3/4" - I crocheted it with RHSS and I used a 'J' hook.
~~The Butterfly Bush Diaries left me a comment saying that this reminded her of a clover. A few of these squares crocheted in green would make nice potholders for St. Patrick's day.
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- J hook
Size: Rnds 1 - 5 is approximately 5 3/4" but you can always add more rnds.
- I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook.
Rnd 1: With pink ch 4, 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 2. (3 dc, ch 2, in same ch) 3 more times. Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch.
Rnds 2 - 3: Ch 3, dc in each dc around with (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in corner ch-2 spaces. For Rnd 2, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3. For Rnd 3, join with a sl st to back loop of the top of beginning ch 3. End off.
Rnd 4: Join white with a sl st to any corner space, (ch 3, 1 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in same space. Dc in the back loops of each dc across. Work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each corner space. Join with a sl st to top of beginning ch 3.
Rnd 5: Ch 3, dc in each dc around with (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in each corner space around. Join as before.
~~you can end off here or continue to make the square any size that you would like
For heart tops:
Join pink with a sl st to 1st front loop on any side of Rnd 3. *skip next front loop, 3 dc in each of next 2 front loops, skip next front loop, sl st in next front loop. Repeat from * 1 more time. End off.
Repeat for next 3 sides. Tack down heart tops.

***Debi Y's pattern***
doesn't look familiar to me... I like how you did the top of the hearts... cant wait to see the pattern I think it would look great in a blanket I am making... what size is this square?ReplyDelete
Hi Sarah - the square measures 5 3/4". :)ReplyDelete
Can't say I have ... pretty pink yarn..ReplyDelete
Have not seen. First I thought I have seen it. But then I remembered that was a heart doily.I love this!!ReplyDelete
Very pretty Debi. I haven't seen anything like it. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. :-)ReplyDelete
Wow I love this! Your very talented..I cannot recall ever seeing a pattern like this.. I love how the edge of the heart is 3d!ReplyDelete
Oh, I absolutely love this. I hope you will write up and post the pattern. I'd love to make an entire blanket of these. You're so talented and creative. Wow!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much ladies. I'll try to get the pattern written up and posted as soon as I can. :)ReplyDelete
wow Debi, this square is really stunning, I love it! I haven't seen this one either, but I personally think it looks better with those four hearts than the squares with only one heart - when it comes to Granny Squares, I like the symmetrical ones better. Very, very nice!ReplyDelete
Very pretty. I haven't seen anything like it before. It would be nice in a girly afghan or baby blanket.ReplyDelete
I love the square. No, I have never seen anything like it before. I love hearts and last February made some coasters from a pattern I found and believe me I saw many designs while surfing for that perfect pattern. Your design looks simple enough (yet, no one has designed anything like it before). I will be curious to see how you crocheted in the white rows. Hope you will share it with us. Congratulations, I think you have a winner there!ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous, Debi!! I have never seen anything like it either. You definitely have a winner with this! :DReplyDelete
I love this. I haven't seen it before either. I will definitely have to try it if I get back to crocheting if you don't mind.ReplyDelete
I have not seen anything like this before, and I love it. Sure hope you post the pattern for it :)ReplyDelete
I haven't seen anything like it before either. Very pretty!ReplyDelete
That's really lovely - it reminds me of clover too for some reason. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
T B B D - good idea - I'll mention that when I post the pattern later. :)
It is a stunning square arent you clever to invent it, I have never seen one like it.ReplyDelete
Hi Debi, I just love this pattern. You are so talented in what you make. This is going on my to do list, I would love a lapghan of this. I'm hoping that I can finally add a comment. Wasn't able to before. Keeping fingers crossed! Have a wonderful evening.ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful, as usual!ReplyDelete
Love this! I am going to try out your pattern this week. THANKS!!ReplyDelete
çok hoş bir örgü..ReplyDelete
I love this! I have never seen a pattern like this before, it's very lovely. Thanks for the pattern. Blessings always. :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful square! Love the two-dimensional effect!ReplyDelete
Thanks ladies - I loved reading all your nice comments. :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful square!!! Love it!ReplyDelete
Very creative! I have never seen a motif square like this either. Would make a lovely pattern for a baby blanket.ReplyDelete
This square is adorable...I simply have to try making one...thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete
Love the hearts square!!ReplyDelete
But I got a question about your hook/needle. I'm pooling for needles with a big handle cause my hands can't hold the normal ones and even the special ones are difficult. Where did you find them?
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
AnitraX - I made my crochet hooks with polymer clay. I posted about it on July 6th. Here's the link -
I absolutely love it!!ReplyDelete
I like that! It does seem familiar but have no clue where I might have seen something like it before. :o)ReplyDelete
I love it! Thanks so much for the pattern! I just have to try it and then save for the next Valentine's day.ReplyDelete
Very pretty, Debi! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Just found your wonderful blog. I just love crochet and have just finished a granny square blanket, am now on a daisy shawl. Have even got my husband interested and he is making his first lot of squares.ReplyDelete
I love this heart square, are you going to let us know how to finish it?
Thanks for all the nice comments ladies. :)ReplyDelete
crafty cat corner - you can end off after Rnd 5 and then add a sc round if you'd like.
It's absolutely gorgeous! :DReplyDelete
i love it it is really a cool looking squareReplyDelete
You're such a talented lady, love your designs! This is the cutest version of the beloved Granny Square I've ever seen! I love the way it can be changed to look like different things, heart, cupcake & ice cream cone. I've been crocheting for about 35 yrs. and I must say, I've never seen a square quite like this one, keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
wow!! I try to make this. Visit it in my blog http://lecosedimysa.blogspot.comReplyDelete
These are so adorable!ReplyDelete
where does the crochet hooks or covers come from? I could use some of those....ReplyDelete
Thanks everyone. :)ReplyDelete
Anonymous - I make my crochet hook handles. Over on the right side bar is a picture of one of them - click on the picture and it will take you to the post where I explain how to make them. Have fun. :)
Really cute! I like it ;)ReplyDelete
Hi there, this looks very similar to a cross my heart granny squareReplyDelete
Krochet Krystal designed a flower pattern that is similar in that the tips of the flower petals are raised up. That is what I thought of when I saw yours. But they are both totally different
Haven't seen anything like this.....Love it !!ReplyDelete
AWESOME! I can hardly wait to make one. I guess the afghan I'm working on will have to sit for a bit. LOL. You did a GREAT JOB!!!!ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous cant wait to try this when i have my latest project finished. thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thank you all very much - I'm so glad ya'll like the square. :)ReplyDelete
Teena - yes, it does look similar - but the squares are different. Mine is more simple. :)
I just made one this morning. so adorable!ReplyDelete
I have made a baby blanket with one-heart squares before. the pattern can be founf in a book called "Love me Tender Afghans" By Leisure Arts, by Anne Halliday. it is featured on the cover.ReplyDelete
Nice job on the 4-heart square!

WOW. If you make adjacent hearts a different colour (or even harder, each heart) then it be a 4 block heart square.ReplyDelete
I love all the pretty colors in your pics! You must be a fun person because you love all those colors! Thanks for the hearts square pattern. My daughter's birthday is Valentine's Day, and I'm always searching for heart things for her!ReplyDelete
Thank you ladies. :)ReplyDelete

I like this pattern but it does not tell how yarn one should useReplyDelete
Thank you. I did not weigh the different color yarns - they're just small amounts of each.Delete
Es un hermoso y sencillo granny , las combinaciones son lo que lo hace único... Gracias por compartirlo!!! , saludos desde Venezuela!!! tienes un lindo blog...ReplyDelete
Saludos desde Venezuela!!! es un hermoso cuadrado , y además es una belleza lo sencillo y lindo que puede quedar las distintas combinaciones!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the pattern. I'm gonna give it a try :)ReplyDelete
i just what to know can i use 8 ply wool for those pattern thank youReplyDelete
Hi - I'm not sure what size 8-ply wool is, but if it works with either a size 'I' or a 'J' hook it will be ok to use. :)Delete
Thanks ladies. :)ReplyDelete
wow great granny luv this :), greets alice :)ReplyDelete
I haven't seen it before but I LOVE it...Well done..:)ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing!!!ReplyDelete
Worked on this last night...a few questions. (1)The beginning of the row where you begin with crochet 3 then double crochet seems to leave an unsightly "hole" -- how do I fix that? (2) Seriously? You tie off at the end of each top of the heart? What should I do with all the unsightly "ends" (3) How do you tack down the tops of the hearts? Love the pattern. Want to make it work.... :)ReplyDelete
1) if you would prefer, you can ch 2 and then work a dc in the same space as the ch 2. Just remember not to count the ch 2 as a dc.
2) yes seriously. you will weave in the ends just like any other crochet project.
3) I tack down the middle dc of each top of the hearts with a separate piece of yarn. You can then tie the ends into a knot and weave them in.
Hi Debi thanks a lot I love your 4 heart square!Delete
I just want to share with you the little change I did because it my be usefull also to others, I made the top of the hearts in one go, after the 3th round before the white color so I don't need to weave all tose ends.
Sounds like a good idea Emy - how did you do it? :)Delete
OMG! Debi Y! I LOVE YOUR GUTS! This square is just PERFECT for a new project I am working on. I have been looking for a pattern for WEEKS that fits the bill.ReplyDelete
Thank you SO MUCH!!! You have just made my day
Parabéns pelo blog e os lindos trabalhos.ReplyDelete
Lindo!!! parabens pelo blog!!!ReplyDelete
Very pretty square! Thank you! :)ReplyDelete

I was interested in following your blog but I have only been following blogs that send theirs via email. Do you have do this? If so please let me know how to sign up, I really love some of your designs. thanks so much!ReplyDelete
Thanks Susan. I haven't figured out how to do the email following, but I'll look around some more. :)Delete
Thank you all very much ladies. :)ReplyDelete
I wouldn't use sharpie PERMNAMENT markers, I would use variegated embroidery thread and make French knotsReplyDelete
That sounds like a good idea Colleen. :)Delete
I just made the four heart square and absolutely love it!!!! Your instructions were great and easy to follow along with the pictures. I am doing a heart sampler lap blanket and this will fit perfect. I can't wait to do the cupcake one for a blanket that I am planning on doing for a friend of mine. Hobby Lobby does sell a yarn with with "sprinkles" in it. Thank you so much, again I just love this squareReplyDelete
I love your pattern and will try it for sure! On your 'cupcake' version...little beads or sequins would make wonderful sprinkles!ReplyDelete
E' possibile che qualcuno mi spieghi come fare a lavorare la parte del cuore nell'ultima fase? grazie!
You have such BEAUTIFUL ITEMS! Thank you so much for sharing them. I LOVE GRANNY SQUARES!! These are just BEAUTIFUL and I plan to try them very soon!. Thank you again!ReplyDelete
I love your Heart Square, thank you for sharing your creativity :-)ReplyDelete
thank you for this pattern. I have made enough to put together for a bedspread. They are beautiful squares. I crochet in the winter to keep my hands from getting stiff from arthritis & my grandma did the same up to the age of 106 (when she passed away). I shall put them together possibly next winter. Thanks again for sharing your pattern.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the pattern Debi. It is so pretty and looks easy to make. I like the cupcake one too. WandaReplyDelete
Obrigada por compartilhar este lindo trabalho. É a primeira vez que visito o seu blog.Estou gostando mt. Seja bem vinda ao meu blog:ReplyDelete
Abraços e fique com Deus!
Thank you so much for these variations on the simple granny square. I've been making granny squares for years and never even thought of doing this.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing these patterns. I've just finished 4-Hearts Square and it's cute. 😁😍🌻⚽ReplyDelete
Thank you for this lovely unique pattern. I'll be making one for each of the ladies in my Bible Study Group for our St. Patrick's Day meeting next week.ReplyDelete
This is such a fun idea! Pinned.ReplyDelete
Is it possible to post a few pictures that shows how to make top of the hearts. I do not get it by the text?
Hi Lovisa Ahlin - I'll get some pictures up as soon as I can. :)Delete
Beautiful pattern. I had a question...
How did you tack it down? I'm not sure what you mean by this. Do you have a example of what you mean.
Thank you Meji. I just sewed down the tops of the hearts with a stitch (I used yarn). :)Delete
So cute, you did a wonderful job! Pinned.ReplyDelete
I'm in the process of making an afghan with your darling ideas of cupcakes and ice cream cones! Thank you very much and God Bless you! My husband and I decided to call our afghan Cake and Ice cream.ReplyDelete
I love the pattern but would love to know the best way to join the squares. I'm still new at granny squares.ReplyDelete
There are many ways to join granny squares. You can whipstitch them together - sc them together, or use the flat braid joining method (which is my favorite way to join) - the link for the flat braid method videos is on the sidebar. :)Delete
Hi Debi i jus wanted to know if u have a video of the 4 heart squareReplyDelete
Hi Dinora. No - I'm sorry I don't.Delete
Hi, this is beautiful...I think I'm going to attempt my first squares afghan with the hearts...very nice. Sure hope it's as easy as you say :)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for this pattern! Definitely going to give the hearts a go tonight. Thinking blue hearts with my blues/greens/purple mix yarn for a baby poncho!!! Which will be my first attempt as well 😄ReplyDelete
Debi, I love this 4-heart pattern, it's so versatile. I will definitely give credit where credit is due! Thanks! AnneReplyDelete
Love this pattern for the heart and so does my daughter in fact she wants me to make it for her as a bed spread for a twist so I'll be making lots and lots of 4 heart squares in spring green and shocking pink and blue around the heartsReplyDelete
I've got to try this for a baby afghan! I'm sure you can find yarn already flecked. I found 3 on-line that may fit the bill: Sirar Sunuggly Spots, Schachemayr Bravo Baby, and Plymouth Yarn Dreambaby.ReplyDelete
How did you do.thos pattern with different color hearts. How did you do the color change for each heartReplyDelete
Hello. It's all explained in the written patterns. :)Delete
that's is so pretty, not seen it before.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing it.
May I use your first name?ReplyDelete
I am a 2time cancer survivor and I make things to donate to my local cancer center. I was making little stuffed hearts but this would be faster and I could make more! I put a card with them and I would like to include your first name since you will be part of the love in it.....
These little tokens mean so much to patients, and this pattern is perfect! Thank you and God Bless you!
Hi there. Yes, you can use my name for the squares. God Bless you too. :)Delete
This pattern, and the variations are absolutely brilliant! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
