Valentine Heart Amigurumi Pattern [Free]

Share This:

Happy Valentine’s day! So, I’m one of those people who wait until the last minute to do or plan anything for holidays because of how busy life gets. I’m working on that, but for now, that’s the reason I am just now getting this out here. I sat down last night and wondered what I was going to crochet. I ended up making two separate hearts while working on this fantastic heart amigurumi pattern.

Valentine Heart Amigurumi Pattern

I’ve been doing a lot of Pokemon patterns lately, but I’ve been brewing up ideas for my own stuff as well. Let’s just say they were ‘practice’ for some techniques I wanted to try out. Don’t worry, I’m not done with the Pokemon. I have plans for several more in the future. If you have any requests for a Pokemon, please contact me or comment below.

I know that hearts are kind of cliche, but I thought they would be cute. And I wanted to make something quick, easy, small and able to be made into cute kawaii characters by embroidering faces on them. This heart amigurumi pattern is the answer to that.

Materials

Here are the materials and tools you will need to complete this pattern (yardage for yarn is estimated):

 

Tools and Materials

  • 20 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn – Choose whatever color you like. I used Cascade Superwash 220 for the pink one, and Ella Rae Cozy Soft for the red one.
  • Size C (2.75mm) Crochet Hook – I’ve been favoring this one lately to close up some holes I was getting. Please feel free to adjust this to what you are comfortable with.
  • Polyfil – Cluster Stuff is shown, while the quality overall of this stuffing is great. I’m actually in favor of the regular polyfil, as it’s more dense than this type and uses less polyfil over all to complete a project, while making the object more firm.
  • Scissors
  • Yarn Needles – I prefer the bent tip darning needles, but use whatever you have on hand.
  • Stitch Markers – The stitch markers are for marking the end, or beginning, of each round.
  • Yarn Threader – This is OPTIONAL, but helpful.

Size & Gauge

Gauge: Gauge isn’t too important for this heart amigurumi pattern. If you’d like a reference, the first 3 rounds of the heart measure 0.75 inches in diameter.

Size: Finished heart amigurumi pattern is approximately 2.5 inches tall by 2.75 inches wide by 1-1.25 inches deep (2.5″x2.75″x1.25″). Please feel free to change up the yarn and hook sizes to make it your own. :)

Difficulty Level

This is an intermediate heart amigurumi pattern. You must know how to do a single crochet stitch. Increasing and decreasing are explained below. The reason this is an intermediate pattern is because of the ‘standing leg join’ used when the two ‘humps’ at the top of the heart are turned into once piece. If you are a beginner, and want to try this technique out, this is a good pattern to do that with because it is fast and relatively easy to do.

Abbreviations

These are the abbreviations you will see in the heart amigurumi pattern below:

  • MR – Magic Ring (ex. MR6 means make 6 single crochet in the magic ring)
  • st – stitch
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • SC – Single Crochet Stitch
  • Inc – Increase (see below)
  • Dec – Decrease (see below)
  • F/O – Fasten Off

Stitch Guide

For those of you that are new to creating amigurumi, here are the definitions you may need for this heart amigurumi pattern.

  • Magic Ring (MR) -This is how most amigurumi patterns start. Here is a video (left-handed / right-handed) showing how to create a magic ring. If you can’t quite get the hang of it, don’t worry, you can always chain 2 then stitch the number of stitches inside the slip stitch you used to start.
  • Increase (Inc) – Crochet 2 SC in the next stitch.
  • Decrease (Dec) – Crochet the next 2 stitches together.

This pattern is made by creating two parts and joining them using the ‘standing leg join‘ technique (click the link if you’d like to see a video showing how to do this). There are images below explaining the process. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Next you will be joining the two humps together by continuing to crochet around both as shown here.

R5 sc in each st around hump 2, but do not move marker (image 1) Pick up hump 1 and begin to crochet in the st after the one that you F/O (image 2). Sc in that st (image 3).

Continue to sc around hump 1, but do not sc into the same st as the first (image 4 below). Move stitch marker to the last st (image 5 below). (36 sts total, in theory. If you find that you have more/less sts, don’t fret. Simply create an inc or dec over the next 3 rows for each extra st you need to add or remove respectively to get to 36. I’m telling you this because I had varied results while repeating the pattern. A couple of extra inc or dec will not be noticed. )
