Making Your Crochet Amigurumi Heart

Materials Needed:

  • Crochet Hook: Choose a hook size that is suitable for your yarn weight.
  • Yarn: Pick your favorite colors.
  • Stuffing: Polyester fiberfill (polyfil) or, for an eco-friendly option, yarn or fabric scraps.
  • Stitch Marker: Useful for tracking your rounds. Can be a piece of yarn or a safety pin.
  • Yarn Needle: For weaving in ends and assembling your amigurumi heart.

Step-by-Step pattern

Starting Out:

  1. Magic Ring: Begin with a magic ring and work 6 single crochets into the ring, then pull the yarn tail to tighten.

Building the Base:

  1. First Round Increases: Work one increase into each stitch of the first round. Use a stitch marker to keep track. After this round, you will have 12 stitches.
  2. Increasing for Shape: In the second round, work one single crochet into the first stitch, then an increase into the next, repeating around the entire piece (6 times total). You will end up with 18 stitches.

Shaping the Body:

  1. Straight Rounds: Work one single crochet into each stitch around, repeating this for two more rows, totaling 5 rounds.
  2. Repeat for Second Piece: Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail, and pull through to fasten off. Repeat steps 1-4 to make a second piece but do not fasten off the second piece.

Joining Pieces:

  1. Combining Heart Halves: Join the two pieces together by working 18 single crochets around the first piece, continue onto the second piece, and work 18 more single crochets. You’ll now have 36 stitches in the round.
  2. Closing the Gap: Sew the small gap between the two pieces closed using the yarn tail from the first piece, then weave in the end.

Decreasing for Shape:

  1. First Decrease Round: Work 4 single crochets, then one invisible decrease, repeating this around the entire piece (6 times). You’ll have 30 stitches now.
  2. Continuing Rounds: Work one single crochet into each stitch around, giving you 8 rounds.
  3. Further Decreases: Continue with decrease patterns as follows, working a round between decreases:
    • Round to 24 Stitches: Work 3 single crochets, then one invisible decrease (6 times).
    • Round to 18 Stitches: Work 2 single crochets, then one invisible decrease (6 times).
    • Round to 12 Stitches: Work one single crochet, then one invisible decrease (6 times).

Finishing Touches:

  1. Stuffing: Begin stuffing your heart, ensuring it’s firm to maintain shape over time.
  2. Final Decreases: Work 6 invisible decreases in a round. Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail.
  3. Closing the Heart: Weave the yarn tail through the front loops of the last round, pull the tail tight to close the opening, and weave in the ends.
