Another cutie has been added to my cuddly crochet series! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, make this quick and easy cuddly crochet heart! I used Bernat Softee Baby Chunky yarn which makes this sweetie so snuggly and soft! This pattern is very simple because the heart shaped head is created by crocheting an “L” shape. Basically it’s an adaptation of my Love Bug Lovey wings which you can see a detailed tutorial for HERE.
– Bernat Softee Baby Chunky yarn in Cherry Red (found at Michaels and other local craft stores or online HERE)
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
– 9mm Safety Eyes (found in Jo-Ann Fabric stores or online HERE)
– Small piece of black worsted yarn for the mouth
– Poly-fil fiber stuffing
