Here you find the size specifications for the big Tilda heart. The sizes refer to the specificneedle sizes and a matching crochet yarn. Crocheting very loose or firmly can cause differences, also as different yarns. By using thicker or thinner yarn with a fitting needle size you can enlarge or minimize Amigurumis easily, without having to change the pattern.

Crochet bonnets for big Tilda heart (2x)
First wecrochet2 bonnetsforthe big Tilda heart. For this westart each one in the middleandcrochetinspiralroundswithonlydoublecrochetstitchesoutwards.
1st round: magic ring with 6 double crochet stitches = 6 stitches
2nd round: double every stitch = 12 stitches
3rd round: double every 2nd stitch = 18 stitches
4th round: double every 3rd stitch = 24 stitches
5th – 8th round: (= 4 rounds) each stitch one stitch = 24 stitches
1st bonnet: cut the thread generous, pull off the loop
2nd bonnet: DONT cut the thread
Cut the thread of the 1st bonnet generous and pull off the loop. When you finished the 2nd bonnet DONT cut the thread and crochet together both bonnets.
Crochet together both bonnets
Next we will crochet together both bonnets. Therefore the nice side of the bonnets show upwards. Now you don´t continue crocheting around the 2nd bonnet, but around the 1st bonnet.
For this you stitch at the 1st bonnet into the first stitch of the next round, which is exactly the stitch left to the edge of the round end. Now you crochet completely once around the 1st bonnet and thereby each stitch one stitch. Count the stitches exactly, so you don´t miss or double a stitch.
Then stitch into the first stitch of the new round of the 2nd bonnet and crochet also exactly once around. Keep counting here, to crochet exactly each stitch one stitch. This way you have already crocheted the first round of the body of the heart.
Between both bonnets a little gap arises, which you will sew together from the inner side. Therefore use easily the thread end of the 1st bonnet and secure it inside. Now keep crocheting like described for the body of the heart.
