How to Crochet a Love Letter

The past few weeks on my blog I’ve been doing Valentine’s Day related crochet projects. First, I did a granny square heart, then I did a small crochet heart. For this project, I am stemming off of Monday’s post with the crochet heart. So if you haven’t seen that post, check it out here!

Once you’ve gotten the crochet heart down pat, you’re ready to take on the crochet love letter!

Let’s get started!

Abbreviations to Know

  • St = Stitch
  • Ch = Chain
  • sc = Single Crochet

Materials

  • Two colors of yarn (I use white for the envelope, and red for the heart)
  • A crochet hook (I’m using a size G)
  • A darning needle

Pattern

Envelope:

Row 1: Ch 20

(Note: You can crochet as many as you’d like, depending on how big or small you’d like your envelope!)

Row 2: Ch 1, in the second st from hook, sc 19 (Or however many you did) down the chain

Row 3-23: Ch 1, sc down the line (Make sure to ch 1 after every row!)

(Note: If you changed how many you chained at the beginning, you may need to make more or less rows, depending on how many you chained. At the end you need to create a square!)

How to Sew the Envelope Closed

Turn the square so it is shaped like a diamond, then take the corner and fold it into the middle, like this:

Then take the right corner and fold it over the first one, like this

After that, take the left corner and fold it over just like before (Shown below)

If you want, you can sew each corner down individually, or you can sew them all together in one step. Once the edges are sewn down, it’s time to place the heart!

P.S: If you wanted, you could sew the last side down and make it totally enclosed! I choose to keep mine open!

Note: If you sew through the whole envelope you won’t be able to open it at the end! In the video I made this mistake, but it was okay becasue I wasn’t planning on putting anything inside anyway!

Sewing down the heart

There are many places you could sew the heart down to. I choose right in the middle of the flaps, But you could also choose the front side, which would be a cute option f you sewed down the last flap in the last step!

And you’re done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, let me know what you thought in the comments below!
