About the pattern:

1: Work 6 sc in a magic ring 
2: Work 2 sc in each st around 
3: (Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times 
4-5: Sc in each st around
Cut the yarn leaving a short tail for sewing. Make another piece just like the previous one by repeating rounds 1-5. Do not cut the yarn as we will continue using the yarn of the second piece.
6: Crochet the pieces together. Work 9 sc on the second piece, 18 sc around the first piece and again 9 sc on the second piece . Sew the hole between the two pieces closed.
7: Sc in each st around
8: (Sc in each of next 4 sts, sc2tog) rep 6 times 
9: Sc in each st around

Fill the heart with fiberfill. Add a bit of stuffing after the next rounds as well.

Cut the yarn leaving a tail for closing the piece. Weave the threaded needle through the front loops of all remaining stitches and pull tightly to close.
