Amigurumi Kawaii Hearts - Free Pattern!

amigurumi kawaii hearts

Welcome! It's January and the stores are already filling up with red and pink hearts, candies, and teddy bears! However, we have just come off Christmas and I don't know about you, but my pocketbook is a little skinny. I do want to show my loved ones how much I care on February 14th, though, so I came up with this heart pattern that I want to share with all of you.

These sweet little kawaii amigurumi hearts can be used to fill a decorative bowl, strung up as garland to be used as home decor, or given to someone as a gift. Children, in particular, will love these. They also make great teacher gifts or even Valentine party favors! 

I have plenty of yarn scraps and I happen to have safety eyes lying around, but if you don't have safety eyes, no worries. You can embroider the eyes or leave them off altogether. There are no rules here! 

These hearts are made with any color of yarn you prefer. You can go traditional with red or pink or be different like our little minty friend in the pic above. I used a worsted weight yarn and a 3.5 mm crochet hook (size E), but you can use whatever you have on hand. Just remember the smaller the weight of yarn, the smaller the hook. So, if you used a DK or sport weight yarn, your hook should be something like a 2.5 mm (or B hook). Now that I'm thinking about it, I may have to make some that size too! They would be so cute and tiny!

This is an easy pattern to do as there are very few stitches to know. It is mostly single crochet (sc).

Insert safety eyes between rounds 8 and 9 with 4 stitches between. Begin stuffing.

Finish off. Use yarn tail and yarn needle to close up hole if needed.


Now, we will begin the other bump on top of the heart starting with sl st into the first skipped stitch of round 12 as shown:


Stuff firmly as you go.

Rnd 17: sc 7, dec x 3, sc 7 - crochet into the front loops of the ch. 2 from round 12 (16)

Finish stuffing. Fasten off and use the tail to close the hole same as before.
