Crochet a Cute Apple Heart Amigurumi

The Apple Heart amigurumi is a little and soft apple amigurumi with the shape of a heart. I designed this Apple Heart pattern to gift it to my Romantic Hedgehog amigurumi, but you can gift it to your favorite one, or use it as a keychain decoration, or as a pin cushion…

The Apple Heart amigurumi is very fun to make and combines basic crochet stitches with simple scoubidou techniques. Do you remember scoubidou’s from the old school days? Well, I used to love them. I made tons of them in all kinds of shapes and colors. Who knew that scoubidou techniques were going to be useful for amigurumi making?! If you do not know or do not remember how to make scoubidou’s, do not worry. I made an image tutorial to guide you through the steps.

The construction of the Apple Heart amigurumi is top-down. So that the top bumps of the heart are made first and then joined together. Lastly, the leaves and the scoubidou petiole are attached in the top middle part of the heart.
