With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I’d get into the lovey dovey mood and make a cute little crochet heart.
This pattern is for a plushie heart that you can leave plain or dress up as you like – maybe add a cute amigurumi face or embroider a sweet love note!
-worsted weight yarn in red. I’m using Bernat – True Red
-3.50mm crochet hook
-polyester fiberfill for stuffing
st(s) – stitch(es)
sc – single crochet
inc – increase (2 sts in same st)
dec – decrease (sc2tog)
This pattern is worked in continuous rounds, do not join or turn at the end of each round. Use stitch marker to keep track of beginning/end of rounds.
