Be still my amigurumi heart! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so is CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) week. In celebration, I have created a new free crochet pattern for an amigurumi LOVE heart!
For this amigurumi love heart pattern we are using a worsted weight yarn and a crochet hook to match size. I used a G hook for the majority of my tester hearts, and an H hook for my last. I love how they both worked up! If you like, use a fingering/lace weight yarn with a corresponding hook to make a tiny one, or a super bulky yarn with an M or N hook for a small-ish throw pillow. How adorable are these?!

To make this heart, I used FOUR strands of Red Heart’s Sweet Home yarn. It is a whopping 60″ in circumference! Nothing else was changed, the pattern and stitch counts remain the same.
Magic circle, 6sc in ring. Do not join. (6)

Fasten off leaving a tail about 10” long.
Make the second hump and do not fasten off.
Connect the two humps using the tail left from the first hump. Sew humps together using 5 sts from each (see photo). Whip stitch through those five sts and fasten off. The two humps together (before sewn) would be 80 sts total. After sewing them together, we will have 70 sts total to start the body. Make sure you will have 70 sts before moving on. Do invisible decreases throughout.
