Difficulty: Beginner ✦✧✧✧✧
Here is a great free beginner's amigurumi crochet pattern of a heart for your love.
This shows you how to combine small features (like a semi-circle) together to make a larger more ornate object.
Once you get the hang of it, these are really easy to make! I can make one in about 15 minutes. It's a great use of all those bits of yarn leftover from other projects and perfect for today!
Make 2 semi circles:
Row 1: Chain 5, slip stitch (st) in the first chain Row 2: 2 single crochet (sc) in each chain of the round. (10 sts). Row 3: [1 sc, 2 sc in the next sc] repeat 5 times. (15 sts). Row 4: 1 sc in each sc of the round. (15 sts). Tie off the first semicircle. After completing the second semicircle, continue directly to joining.
Join the 2 semi circles and create the cone
Stitch 1 sc from each semi circle together from the inside for 3 sc.
Insert the hook from the inside of one semicircle to the inside of the second semicircle.
Row 5: sc in each sc on the first semi circle (12 sts) and continue to sc in each sc of the second semi circle (12 sts), ignoring the 3 joined sc, for 24 sc around.
Crochet around the first semicircle and continue to the second semicircle to join the two.
Row 6: [sc in the next 2 sc, sc2tog] repeat around. (18 sts). Row 7: sc in each sc around. (18 sts). Row 8: [sc in next sc, sc2tog] repeat around. (12 sts). Row 9: sc in each sc around. (12 sts). Stuff the heart. Row 10: [sc2tog] around. (6 sts). Row 11: [sc2tog] around. (3 sts).
Tie off and tuck the string inside. Now you have a beautiful heart!
Hearts can be made in any color, but more importantly, with any yarn and any size hook.
