You got a sneak peek of these Crochet Puffy Hearts in my yarn wrapped LOVE letters post and now I am going to show you how to make them! Much easier than you might think! The hearts are actually worked in rows and then once you have two of them made, you stitch them together with SC stitches, stuffing with poly-fil before you close.
– Bernat Super Value Yarn. I used colors Magenta, Dark Mauve, Baby Pink, Winter White and Lavendar. Shop all colors at Yarnspirations.com.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Poly-fil Fiber Stuffing
– Tapestry Needle
Finished Size: 3×2 inches
Puffy Hearts Pattern:
Make two in same color
Chain 7, SC in 2nd chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 2-3: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 4: SC in first 3 stitches, ch 1, turn (3 SC)
Row 5-7: SC in each stitch across, ch1, turn (3 SC)
When you get to the last row, continue to SC around entire heart. When you get to bottom stitch (the one with the your slip knot) SC + Chain 1 + SC all in one stitch. Then when you get to the top “v” indent, slip stitch (instead of SC). Join, fasten off and weave in ends.
Take 2 of the same color heart and place one on top of the other. SC the edges together, when you get to the bottom make a SC + chain 1 + SC all in one stitch. Continue to SC around and when you get to the top indent of the heart, slip stitch instead of SC. Be sure to stuff with polyfil before closing!
