Stitch count is in []


- Use your 6mm crochet hook
- We will start by making the top two rounded corners of the heart and working our way down to the pointed corner at the bottom of the heart.
(1) 6sc into MR [6]
(2) *Inc* x 6 [12]
(3) *Sc, inc* x 6 [18]
(4) Sc in each stitch around [18]
(5) Sc in each stitch around [18]
- Sl st into the next stitch and fasten off
- Repeat rounds 1-5 again, but DO NOT fasten off. Make sure to keep your work on your hook. Once you've finished these rounds, continue to round 6 to connect the two pieces.
(6) Place a SC into any stitch on the first piece you made and continue to place a SC in each stitch around [36]
- After connecting the two rounded pieces, you will notice that there's a small gap. You can simply fix this by taking a piece of your red yarn and weaving it through the gap. Make sure your yarn is securely fastened by tying a knot and that the knot is hidden on the inside of the heart.
(7) Sc in each stitch around [36]
(8) *4sc, dec* x 6 [30]
Place your 12mm safety eyes between rounds 8 & 9, approximately 5 stitches apart. Please reference the photo provided.
- Begin stuffing your heart.
(9) Sc in each stitch around [30]
(10) *3sc, dec* x 6 [24]
(11) Sc in each stitch around [24]
(12) *2sc, dec* x 6 [18]
(13) Sc in each stitch around [18]
(14) *Sc, dec* x 6 [12]
(15) Sc in each stitch around [12]
- Make sure your heart is stuffed to your liking before continuing.
(16) *Dec* x 6 [6]
- Fasten off: ss into the next stitch and leave a long tail of yarn for sewing. Close the piece by going through the front loops of each of the 6 stitches with the tail of the yarn. Pull tightly until the hole closes and hide the remainder of the tail inside of your piece.


Take a thin piece of black thread and sew on a smile between the safety eyes. Take a piece of thick pink yarn and sew on some blush under each safety eye.
