Amigurumi Kawaii Hearts - Free Pattern!
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.

(see image below of round 12)
Rnd 13: sc 8, dec in back loops of ch 2, dec, sc 7 (16)

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:
Using pink to embroider cheeks under eyes.
Using black to embroider a mouth in V shape between eyes.
