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.
Crochet Heart Bonnets (2x)
You start your heart crocheting two bonnets, you cut the yarn of the first, but not of the second.
1st round: cast on magic ring with 6 double crochet stitches = 6 stitches
2nd round: double every stitch (increase) = 12 stitches
3rd round: each stitch one stitch (don´t in- or decrease) = 12 stitches
first bonnet: cut the yarn generous, pull off the loop
second bonnet: DON`T cut the thread, continue with the body
Crochet Heart Body (1x)
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.
4th and 5th round: each stitch one stitch (don´t in- or decrease) = 24 stitches
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.
6th round: crochet together every 7th and 8th stitch (decrease) = 21 stitches
7th round: crochet together every 6th and 7th stitch (decrease) = 18 stitches
8th round: crochet together every 5th and 6th stitch (decrease) = 15 stitches
9th round: crochet together every 4th and 5th stitch (decrease) = 12 stitches
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.
10th round: crochet together every 3rd and 4th stitch (decrease) = 9 stitches
fill and stuff the peak completely
11th round: crochet together every 2nd and 3rd stitch (decrease) = 6 stitches
