  1. Love this!! ❤️I started a month before Valentine to get a good heart shape before I give this to my boyfriend. I have done 2 so far, and I am getting better lil by lil. I can do it many times as the pattern takes less time than other projects. For beginners like me, these quick stitches are the best to get hold of these techniques.

    Keep it up, club crochet. And bring us many cute quick stitches

  2. if I were to multiply this to make it bigger like a throw pillow, would I still start it the same or would I have to sc into the magic loop like ten times more or do I start it differently?

  3. Love it!!!!!!!!!!! Made it for my friends for Valentine’s Day 2022, so cute!!!! Thank you so much for this exemplary pattern! Quick, fast, easy. Makes amigurumi seem so simple!
    A suggestion–when weaving in the ends, try pulling an end through the heart from the crack so that the heart shape is more visible. You can also just insert, yarn-over, pull-through when sewing it together with your crochet hook if you don’t have a yarn needle.
    Thanksss!!!
