sc – single crochet, st(s) – stitch(es), rep – repeat
WORK IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS. DO NOT JOIN OR TURN UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED.
IT WOULD BE WISE TO USE A STITCH MARKER AND PLACE IT IN THE FIRST STITCH OF EACH ROUND TO MARK THE BEGINNING OF IT.
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

11: Sc in each st around
12: (Sc in each of next 2 sts, sc2tog) rep 6 times

Fill the heart with fiberfill. Add a bit of stuffing after the next rounds as well.
14: (Sc in next st, sc2tog) rep 6 times 
15: Sc in each st around

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.
