This post is for a very sweet lady named José who asked for the pattern of the stuffed heart.

Dear José, I’ll try here to explain as much as I can how I finally did this little heart after many and many trials… So, excuse my poor English and try to crochet along with me while following these instructions…

Begin making the first hump of the heart : the bump A:

1st round: 12 treble crochet

round 2: 24 tb

round 3: 24tb

round 4: 24tb

like this:

now you’ve already done the first bump which we are going to call bumpA

You have now to do another same bump (exactly the same as A) made with 4 rounds that we are going to call bump B.

round 5: You have to join together A and B with 3 dc and continue making the round with 42 tc like here: (follow the 5 arrows while crocheting the 42 tc)

Now you have A and B joined together with the 5th round …

continue your heart like this:

round 6: 42tc

round 7: 28 tc (1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1 tc, 2-st tr decrease…etc to have a total of 28tc)

round 8: 20 tc (1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1 tc, 2-st tr decrease…etc to have a total of 20tc)

round9: 14tc (1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1 tc, 2-st tr decrease…etc to have a total of 14tc)

round 10: 9tc (1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1tc, 2-st tr decrease, 1 tc, 2-st tr decrease…etc to have a total of 9tc)

and finally round 11: 4dc

Don’t forget to stuff your heart after the round 8!

That is all I can really do to explain…I hope that my instructions were easy to follow… waiting to see your stuffed heart too 😉

Don’t hesitate to ask any question, I’ll do my best to have clear answers…
