Picture of Crocheted Amigurumi-Style Hearts
These cute little hearts will fit nicely in the palm of your loved one's hand. Leave them as-is or go for super amigurumi cute by adding eyes and mouth.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need yarn and a crochet hook of appropriate size. These hearts were crocheted using Caron's Simply Soft yarn in Rubine Red with a size F/5 (3.75mm) hook. You will want a hook that is a little smaller size than what is recommended for your yarn. This keeps the stitches close together so the stuffing won't escape. You will also need a yarn needle and about a handful of stuffing.

These are stinking adorable! Would it be blasphemous to add some catnip and give them to my fur babies?
I would recommend making a little cotton pouch for the catnip, this will keep it from escaping and making your heart look dirty (I made a fish-like-object for mine and it got gross fast)

 from what I know, Chrocheing is not a religion

Then youre rather limited arent you?

Anything you believe in and live by can be a "religion"...:)
I don't know how to crochet but these look great! I knitted some using a pattern from Martha Stewart's website, my kitties love them!

Thanks for posting this pattern. I had tried a similar heart but your pattern worked out a lot better.
Here's the one I worked up, I added a loopy stitch around the outside.

Thanks for sharing a pic of the one you made. I'm glad the instructions made sense. The loopy fringe is really cute. :)

I made one of these today; great instructions and so cute! My daughter will love it. We'll probably put a few drops of essential oil in the stuffing and toss it in her pajama drawer.

I like the ideas about adding the essential oil or catnip. I have some dried lavender--I think I'll make some and add the lavender. Maybe add a cord or loop to hang them in the closet. Hmm..

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy them. And thanks for the tip about making a slideshow for the Lion Brand Contest. I guess I missed that bit about it being only slideshows. SlideshowSlideshow is posted!
Those are the cutest things ever! Post the results and stuff (like the pictures) into a Slideshow, then you can put that in the LionBrand Yarn contest because that is only for Slideshows. But very awesome job! +1 rating. (added to favorites)
These are so cute! :D
