Crochet Heart for Amigurumi and Cupcake

Here’s my take on a super quick and easy amigurumi crochet heart to make for either your smaller amigurumi dolls or as a topper for your cupcake goodies! I’ve used the same crochet pattern for both, but just with a different yarn weight to give it a different size and purpose.

If you want to make a heart for your amigurumi, this small crochet heart pattern works best for amigurumis between the sizes of 3 inches to 5 inches tall. It partners up really well with many of my chibi amigurumi patterns, such as my crochet Pokemon. It’s a great way to “Valentine” up any doll by making the amigurumi look like it’s hugging a crochet heart!

The same pattern also can be used to create a cute heart cupcake topper. Since I wanted the amigurumi heart a lot more smaller and delicate, I used the Paintbox Yarn, in cotton and dk weight to create these little hearts.

These heart cupcake toppers are great fun for parties (not to mention it makes a nice little gift for a guest to take home that lasts beyond after their cupcake is eaten!), and also can be a wonderful treat for any Valentine’s day. To create a topper, I just used toothpicks and stuck the heart on top and then stuck the toothpick on top of the cupcake. Simple, easy, and cute!
