Crochet bonnets for small Tilda heart (2x)

Amigurumi - Crochet small Tilda heart - tutorial for freeFirst we crochet 2 bonnets for the small Tilda heart. For this we start each one in the middle and crochet in spiral rounds with only double crochet stitches outwards.

  • dark pink:
  • 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 – 6th round: (= 3 rounds) each stitch one stitch = 18 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 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.

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.

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.
