Crochet Aran Hearts Throw

The Crochet Aran Hearts Throw is our next community pattern project. I’ve had my eyes on this one for a while as the texture really appeals to me.

This is designed by Bonnie Barker for Red Heart. She used Red Heart Soft. It is completed as a one-piece project. When seeing with the model, the blanket sides are the top and bottom as you are crocheting it. The model is technically sitting at the top of the afghan if you want a visual.

Free Pattern: Crochet Aran Hearts Throw

She used 11 balls of Red Heart Soft but those balls are smaller, you can substitute your yarn as well but I would stay within the same weight level of yarn. There are 3 sizes of hooks used. 5.5 mm / 6 mm and 6.5 mm or I, J, and K.

This afghan, you can learn many stitches that include the following:

  1. Front Ridge Stitch
  2. Arrow Stitch
  3. Single Crochet Popcorn Stitch
  4. Diamond Stitch
  5. Popcorn Heart Stitch
  6. Woven Stitch

There is repeating of the stitch work which makes it easier to follow along. For example, the front ridge stitch combined with the arrow stitch shows up 6 times. The Popcorn and Diamond are completed twice and the centre hearts are only once.

I believe this afghan would be ideal for really special occasions such as weddings. I would consider a light gray or for each separate area to be a different colour within a shade family.


The tutorial is just one. There will be a menu on the video itself to be able to fast forward or reverse. For example, you will do the Front Ridge and Arrow Stitch first and then do the Popcorn. There’s no point putting a second or more section of the front ridge and arrow stitch over and over again in the tutorial.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
