Happy Heart Hug

My little Happy Heart Hug is a pattern I have been making for a long time now. However in November 2020 I decided to use it as a key chain pattern with my Pocket Hugs and send it to people to brighten their days. (Range can be found on Etsy.)

I decided to release this pattern for free so that everyone could enjoy making some hearts and bringing some joy and smiles into the world.

Enjoy the pattern and don’t forget to tag me in your makes or use #floscraftycrochet I love seeing what you create with my patterns.

Or join my crochet groups, Flo’s Crafty Crochet’s Patterns and CAL Or my jointly run group Two Redheads Crochet

Materials

 3.5mm crochet hook

Paint box cotton DK scrap amounts.

I absolutely love this range of cotton. There is such a wide variety of colours and the yarn itself is excellent. Hard wearing, soft and doesn’t split when using it. It is perfect for amigurumi projects. Find some at LoveCrafts.

Fibre Filling

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

Optional 6mm safety eyes (8mm can also be used)

 

Notes

Some lovely testers work

  • Each round is worked in a continuous round.  There is only 1 slip stitch to join at the end of Round 7. A stitch marker is recommended for keeping track of your stitches for each round.

  •  Increase means to place 2 stitches in the same stitch from the previous round.

  • Decrease means to crochet 2 stitches together so they become 1 stitch.

  • Instructions inside ( ) are to be repeated.

  • Finished size approximately 3.5” x 2.5” (9x6cm)
