The crochet Small Heart Applique is a quick and cute embellishment that is the perfect finishing touch to your baby items, accessories, headbands, blankets, or really, any project!
I originally crocheted this heart applique to decorate my Basket Weave Baby Beanie. So, I used a 3.5-mm hook and DROPS Baby Merino, which is a sport-weight yarn.
However, you can use any yarn weight with the appropriate crochet hook to obtain hearts of different dimensions.
