The next time you need a quick little handmade gift, an amigurumi heart is a great way to go. It works up in less than an hour and with only scraps of yarn.

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 any yarn weight?
Yes, this pattern is versatile enough to work with various yarn weights and textures. You will, however, need to choose a hook size that coordinates with the new yarn. Also note that changing yarn or hook size will change the size of the finished project.
