Little Hearty Hair Ties

Posted on Updated on

Crochet Heart Hair Tie Free PatternIts February, so what can I say – hearts are everywhere!  I thought Id make some little heart hair ties for Maia.

These are made using the same pattern as my Heart Bunting, but with a 1.5mm hook and 3ply crochet cotton, so they are small and cute plus they work up quickly – probably about 20mins.

Heart Hair Ties

These are made with two hearts joined together- the first is attached to a hair tie – here’s how:

1. Make a magic circle and chain 3 then crochet 9 double crochets into the circle. Pull your circle tight and secure the round with a slip stitch between your first and last dc.

Round 2: Double crochet 5 times into the first stitch, and once into the next stitch.  In the next stitch double crochet and catch your hair tie behind the stitch to hold it in place: Crochet Heart hair tie free patternWhen the stitch is finished the tie’s secured in place by the stitch.

Double crochet into the next stitch, and when you double crochet into the following stitch catch you hair tie behind on the opposite side. Double crochet once into the next stitch, 5 double crochets into the next stitch. You should have one stitch left from the previous round- pop a slip stitch into it.

4. Round 3: Chain 1. Single crochet into next stitch, 2sc into each of next 3 stitches, sc into next 5 stitches, sc, double crochet, sc into next stitch (bottom of the heart), sc into next 5 stitches, 2sc into each of next 3 stitches, single crochet into last stitch. Slip stitch to finish the round, turn over and tie your ends together- this helps the heart form.

    These are so cute & I’d love to make some for my daughter. I am new to crochet (I am a long-time knitter & was so confused by crochet until I had to make a crochet flower for a knitted bag – I am now “hooked”!!!) As a newbie, can you help with a totally lame question? :) What size is 3 ply cotton? All of the stuff I can purchase has a size, like #10 or #3 – even the stuff that looks like embroidery floss is a #5 (but isn’t 5 ply). help!

      Janette responded:
      June 24, 2012 at 8:44 pm

      I’m sorry I’m not much help I’ve long since list the labels from the balls I use, but I can recall they said they were 3 ply. Could you ask someone who works at the store? I think the smaller number is a thinner yarn, but 3ply is the thickest of that type of cotton.

      Janette responded:
      June 24, 2012 at 8:45 pm

      Also I’d like to say that it probably doesn’t matter what you use do long as the hook is suitable for the weight of yarn- they will just turn out bigger or smaller.

    These are so cute and the tutorial is great. Can’t wait to make several for my 3 granddaughters. Have you considered putting a Pinterest “Pin It” button on your site?

      HI Denise, there is one if you look at the icons below each post? I hope your grand daughters love the slippers! J xox

    Great pattern! Thanks for sharing! :) Just curious if you have a similar pattern for a bow on the hair tie.

      HI, there is a pattern for boys… but I used them for headbands – no reason not to use it for a hairband though: http://thegreendragonfly.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/a-pretty-crochet-bow/

        Thanks! I saw that, but I love how your heart one is double and is directly crocheted into the hair tie. Guess it’s time for me to make a new pattern! Thanks for your help! :)
