So easy you can crochet a little heart, as decoration, pendant, gift or flower spit. In this pattern I show you step by step how a crocheted heart is created and how you can make it in different sizes.
The amigurumi heart we crochet continuously in spiral rounds with double crochet stitches, while we start from the top. At the bottom of the page you can find even more informations to crochet the heart in other sizes.
Now both bonnets are crocheted together. At both bonnets the beautiful side shows upwards. You crochet now not as usually around the second bonnet, but start at the first bonnet directly into the first stitch of the next round.
You crochet around the first bonnet until the last stitch of the round and then you go on on the other side of the second bonnet. Keep attention nothing turns around and leave no stitch empty. Now also the second bonnet is crocheted to the end and once your round is finished, a marker thread is inserted again.
This round already counts as 4th round. It can sometimes happen, that there are suddenly one or two stitches too much. Then you crochet easy to the end of the round, you now have only one or two stitches more each round. There is also no reason to despair, if your heart still looks like a waved elephants bum, it still forms itself.
Now close the remaining gap in the middle with the yarn end of the other bonnet, which you left extra longer and safe this yarn end. The you can already start with the decreases for the peak of the heart.
Now it is time to start with the filling. Its important to fill only piece by piece and form both bumps nicely fixed, so that the heart gets a great figure later. The heart should be almost completely filled now.
The easiest way to make your heart bigger is, of course, to use a thicker yarn with a bigger hook size. If you dare, you can also adjust the stitches as shown, even to crochet a heart pillow.
