Finally getting to his room, he dropped his backpack on the floor by the door and made his way to the bed. His head flopped on the crochet stuffed heart-shaped pillow.

Maybe it’s wasn’t the coolest thing ever to have a heart-shaped pillow in his bedroom. But it was comfortable and that was more important. He thought about his sister, now living away from home. And this crochet stuffed heart reminded him of her every time he used it.

He thought about how she had learned to crochet in order to make him this crochet stuffed heart gift. When he’d asked why she hadn’t tried to make something cooler, she’d said, “Because this is my heart. I’m giving it to you so you’ll remember me.

Also, I don’t want you to become too popular after I’m gone. He smiled at the memory and relaxed his head further into the pillow.

This crochet stuffed heart pattern is so cute and perfect for pretty much anyone. I used Bernat Blanket yarn, but you could use any other yarn.

Just be aware to use a smaller or lager hook depending on which yarn you pick. You also need to realize that the heart either shrinks or gets bigger than this pattern.

The reason why I used Bernat Blanket yarn is because I love how soft it is. It is so perfect for a stuffed heart. Snuggly 🙂

How to Crochet a Stuffed Heart

Materials needed

Crochet Stuffed Heart Instructions

We start on top where the two peaks of the heart are, but we make one peak at a time and then connect the two to finish up the heart.

Heart Peak 1:

Magic ring, 6 sc, close up ring, sl st to first sc (6 sts)

Round 1: Ch 1, 2 sc into each st, sl st to first sc (12 sts)

Round2: Ch 1, *2 sc into the same st, 1 sc into the next st, repeat from * all around, sl st to first st (18sts)

Round 3: Ch 1, 1 sc into each st, sl st to first st (18 sts), fasten off

Heart Peak 2:

Repeat instructions as Peak 1, but do not fasten off at the end

Connecting the 2 Heart peaks:

Round 4: Hold the two peaks so that the same side of each face the same direction, but consider that you are working towards the tip of the heart.

Now Ch 1 and connect the two peaks by doing 6 sc by going thru both peaks, then you will place 1 sc into each stitch by finishing the round around both peaks making a big circle that almost looks like a peanut, sl st to the first sc that did not connect the 2 peaks (after the 6 connecting sc between the 2 peaks). (24st for the round, 6 st to connect the 2 peaks)
