With your yarn choice and a 0.60mm crochet hook make a slipknot
Chain 3 – join to form a circle
R1 – chain 1, work 9 single crochet though the centre of the ring.
R2 – 18 single crochet – work 2 single crochet into every stitch around.
R3 – Work single crochet into every stitch (18)
R4 – One single crochet in every stitch (18)
Complete 4 more rounds of 18.
Make 2 of these circle pieces – In the first circle to end - slip stitch to even the round, cut your yarn and thread through.
In the second circle – leave 5 remaining single crochet before you finish.
Attaching the circles together – There are 13 single crochet on round 4 of the second circle piece – now work the two pieces together. Count 5 stitches back on the first circle piece and single crochet the two pieces together back to back.
R5 – work 1 single crochet in every stitch around – until you come back to the beginning tail.
R6 – work in the round – single crochet – there will be a decrease at each side of the heart.
To decrease – put your hook through the first stitch, wrap yarn over, pull it through – 2 loops on hook – put hook through next stitch, yarn over then pull yarn through when you have 3 loops on hook.
Work single crochet until you come to the opposite side, decrease on the opposite side.
Continue to do this for all rounds until the heart is forming a point.
Stuff the heart with toy stuffing or polyfill as you go, as the opening will get smaller and harder to work.
In the last round – one single crochet decrease in each stitch around.
Cut the yarn and pull tail through to secure. Sew remaining stitches together.
Insert a stick into the pointed end of the heart and secure with a little bit of glue.
Your cake topper will be ready to use!
