Valentine’s day heart freebie

Posted on: January 17, 2014

Last month I had published a post about  heart ornaments I had crocheted for a friend of mine. I had made a promise that I would publish the pattern on my blog by the time Valentine’s day would be just around the corner, so here it is, my Valentine’s Heart pattern. It is very easy and  as usual, doesn’t take long to make. Enjoy!

Amigurumi Heart - Valentine's day pattern

Amigurumi Heart – Valentine’s day freebie

The heart is about 3 1/2 inches. It is decorated with a ribbon and a rose, but it can be used as a base for any kind of decoration.

You will need:
– Pink yarn (I recommend Caron Simply Soft, or similar)
– 2.75mm hook
– Polyester fiberfill for stuffing
– Yarn needle
– Pink ribbon
– Fabric red rose (I found mine at JoAnn, it comes in a package with different colors)
– Glue gun, or fabric glue

abbreviations:
rnd = round
sc = single crochet
inc = increase
dec = decrease
st st = slip stich

THE PATTERN

Buns, (make 2):
With pink yarn or color of your choice, make a magic ring
Rnd 1: 5 sc in center of the ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 3: [1 sc, inc] 5 times (15)
Rnd 4: [2 sc, inc] 5 times (20)
Rnd 5: [3 sc, inc] 5 times (25)
Rnd 6 to 7: sc in each st around (25)
Do not cut the thread  from the yarn when you finish the second bun, you will slip stitch with the first bun.
