Step 2: Pattern

Picture of Pattern
The hearts are created from the bottom up. This gets us a nice pointy bottom and none of the gapiness from decreasing stitches.

Stitches (all are US style):
sc: single crochet
sc2tog: single crochet 2 stitches together (AKA single crochet decrease, reduces number of stitches by 1
slp st: slip stitch
*( ): pattern segment, repeat as indicated

To start (row 1): create an adjustable ring with 3 single crochet (sc) stitches.

Row 2: 2 sc in each sc (6 sc)

Row 3: 1 sc in each sc (6 sc)

Row 4: 2 sc in each sc (12 sc)

Row 5: 1 sc in each sc (12 sc)

Row 6: *(2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc), repeat 5 more times (18 sc)

Row 7: 1 sc in each sc (18 sc)

Row 8: 1 sc in each sc (18 sc)

Row 9: *(2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next two sc), repeat 5 more times (24 sc)

Row 10: 1 sc in each sc (24 sc)

Row 11: *(sc2tog, 1 sc in next 4), repeat 3 more times (20 sc)

Now we form one of the lobes at the top of the heart. This might be a little tricky.

Row 12: Skip the first 10 stitches from he hook, sc in 11th stitch from hook, sc in each remaining sc (10 sc)

Row 13: 1 sc in each sc (10 sc)

Row 14: sc2tog 5 times (5 sc)

Tie off yarn and weave through stitches, pulling hole closed.

Fill with stuffing. If using craft safety eyes, add them now.

Second lobe:

Row 1: slp st yarn onto hook. sc in stitch closest to first lobe. sc in each remaining stitches (10 sc)

Row 2: sc in each sc (10 sc)

Row 3: sc2tog 5 times (5 sc)

Tie off yarn and weave through stitches, pulling hole closed.

Use crochet hook, thin knitting needle, or bamboo skewer to nudge stuffing up into second lobe.

Weave all loose ends in and trim.

Enjoy!
