Sparkly Heart Lollipop Necklace – quick Valentine’s Day crochet pattern

I keep seeing a necklace I want all over the internet. It’s a cute, acrylic, heart-shaped cherry lollipop. I figured I would try to crochet something similar! It’s not quite the same, but still cute, and FREE! :)

Heart Lolly 5

I re-used the 3D heart pattern from my Happy Heart and Rib Cage T-shirt post last Halloween. I noticed there was a little booboo in the pattern while I was reading it this afternoon, so I’ll repost it with the booboo fixed!

Heart Lolly 1

Mine turned out kinda big because I double-stranded two yarns, so you can experiment with your yarn stash and see what you come up with!

Heart Lolly 6

 

p.s. The sweatshirt I’m wearing is from ModCloth. I tried it on today and then never wanted to take it off!

Stuff That I Used:

red Lion Brand Wool Ease
red Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Glamour for sparkle
I hook
4 inch lollipop stick
big gold jump ring
gold necklace chain
FabriTac glue (I would recommend Tacky Glue, tho. I think it dries more clear.)

Pattern

With red Wool Ease and Glamour doubled up, make magic circle, but don’t pull the ring too tightly since you’ll need to fit a lollipop stick in there later. Or, you can ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1 and work 4 sc into ring. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (4)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, TURN. Work (2 sc) 4 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (8)

Rnd 3: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 1 sc] 4 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (12)

Rnd 4: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 2 sc] 4 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (16)

Rnd 5: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 7 sc] 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (18)

Rnd 6: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 8 sc[ 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (20)

Rnd 7: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 9 sc[ 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (22)

Rnd 8: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 10 sc[ 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (24)

Rnd 9: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc),11 sc[ 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (26)

Rnd 10: Ch 1, turn. Work [(2 sc), 12 sc[ 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (28)

Here’s where you form the top of the heart, one side at at time.

Rnd 11: Ch 1, turn. Work 7 sc evenly, then skip 14 sc, then work 7 sc evenly. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (14)

Rnd 12: Ch 1, turn. [dec, dec, 3 sc evenly] 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join (10)

Rnd 13: Ch 1, turn. [dec, dec, 1 sc evenly] 2 times. Sl st to 1st sc to join. (6) Break off leaving 8 inches of yarn. Weave through remaining 6 sts, pull closed, and finish off. If you want your heart to have a little stuffing in it, now is the time to stuff. I left mine un-stuffed.

Now you will work on the other side of the heart.

Rnd 11: Join at the 1st skipped sc of the previous Rnd 11. Work 1 sc in this sc, and in each remaning sc. SL st to 1st sc to join. (14)

Rnds 12-13: Repeat previous Rnds 12-13. Weave in all ends.

Coat about half an inch of your lollipop stick with glue and insert about one inch of the stick into the bottom of your heart, using a twist-back-and-forth motion while you insert the stick to keep the glue from oozing too much out the bottom. Squish the heart around the stick to make sure the glue is making contact with your fabric. Let dry.

Stick a jump ring into the top corner of the heart and string your necklace chain. Enjoy!
