About this Pattern
If you’re looking for a quick little handmade gift, you’re in the right place. Our amigurumi heart works up in less than an hour and with just scraps of yarn (you probably already have lying around).
With this project you’ll learn how to combine two separate amigurumi elements into one complete project. Use a single color for simplicity, two colors like we used or even a variegated yarn for a completely unique look.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started, a video tutorial and, of course, written instructions to walk you through our amigurumi heart step-by-step.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
