My husband and I have been Amazon Prime members for years. We order all of our household supplies, gifts, crochet supplies and even some food items from Amazon. We wouldn’t be able to save money if we had to pay for shipping. Amazon Prime members get free two day shipping on eligible Prime items plus a ton of other perks such as free movie and TV show streaming and free music streaming.
If you’ve been thinking about getting an Amazon Prime membership, how about you start with a free 30-day trial on me? It’s the least I can do for your support!

This pattern utilizes the magic ring (hence the name) to begin in the round. This technique is a little tricky if it’s brand new to you. I recommend you have a look at my magic ring tutorial for a slower, more in depth explanation of this technique.
You do not have to begin this pattern with the magic ring. If you are struggling with the magic ring and you still want to create this pattern, check out my alternative method.
You can adjust the sizing of this pattern by exploring with different size hooks and yarn. For a much smaller heart, I recommend using a lightweight yarn and a 4 mm crochet hook. For a larger heart, I recommend using a chunky weight yarn and a size 9 mm crochet hook.
