I absolutely adore yarn – what crocheter doesn’t? And like most, I find myself drawn to the same yarns over and over again. Red Heart certainly has some go-to yarns for me – and I’m always excited to see the new ones too! I’ve designed many of my free crochet patterns using Red Heart Yarn, and I’d love to share them with you here today. Don’t worry – they’re all linked to the free patterns, so you can make them yourself!
Red Heart With Love is at the top of my list for afghans and blankets – a great range of colors, soft and squishy, I just love it! I’ve made lots of blankets with it over the years, and have the 4 patterns shown above all using this fab Aran weight yarn: Vintage Wobble Afghan, Go Team Colors Baby Blanket, Circle of Love Afghan, and Big Bold Chevron Blanket.
While With Love features fab, go to solids, the Boutique line always has something extra fun and inspirational, perfect for accessories! Above are the Starstuff Cowl made with Unforgettable, Suddenly Sparkles Scarf made with Swanky, Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf made with Unforgettable, and Moroccan Midnight Cowl made with Midnight *and* Red Heart Soft!
Red Heart Soft is also used in several of my favorite patterns featuring this fun “leaping” stitch! And it sure does live up to it’s name! Check out the Leaping Stripes and Blocks Beanies, Leaping Crochet Baby Hookie, and Mesmerizing Messenger Bag!
And last but never least, everyone knows Red Heart Super Saver! I love using this yarn for kids’ items and home decor! Check out the Building Blocks Backpack, Get Whale Soon Tissue Box Cover, and Elephant Bookends!
I hope you’ve found some inspiration in these free crochet patterns – just like Red Heart Yarns inspired me to design them!
