With this tutorial you can crochet the small Tilda heart and give it away at Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. The crocheted Tilda heart can be made one or multi coloured.
Here you find the size specifications for the small Tilda heart. The sizes refer to the specific needle 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.

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.
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.
Now you can crochet all the other rounds for your small tilda heart. Here we also crochet in spiral rounds just with double crochet stitches. The round you crocheted together both bonnets already counts as first round of the body.
Finally you can decorate your crocheted tilda heart as you like. Sew on some beads, patches or sequins or use a nice crocheted edge. You can use the heart as decoration or pincushion. If you attach a loop of chain stitches or a ribbon, you can also use the crocheted Tilda heart as a hanger.
I hope you enjoyed to crochet the tilda heart! Have fun with it!
