Amigurumi Heart in a Pot Pattern

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this amigurumi heart in a pot is the perfect gift to let someone know that you’re thinking of them.

This sweet and simple amigurumi heart isn’t just for Valentine’s Day though – hearts are good any time of the year! Think Mother’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries or just because.

About the Pattern

This amigurumi heart in a pot pattern is worked in separate parts with minimal sewing.

I used floral wire for the stem and you will need a pair of pliers to bend it into shape.

The heart is worked from the top down and the top of the heart is formed by making two separate pieces which are then joined together.

The pot is finished with a simple trim to give it added interest. I love how using just a couple of basic stitches creates this fun zigzag edging.

Why You’ll Love This Amigurumi Heart Pattern

Finished Size

The finished heart in a pot measures approximately 4″ (10cm) tall. Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.


  • Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.

R3: 6 sc on the second piece, 12 sc on the first piece (starting in the first st of the last round), 6 sc on the second piece (24)

Use the leftover yarn tail from the first piece to sew up the hole between the 2 pieces. Secure on the inside with a knot.

Cut the yarn leaving a tail and pull through last st. Weave the yarn tail through the front loops only of the final round, do not pull closed. Set aside.

Soil (dark brown)

R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

R2: [Inc] x6 (12)

R3: [Sc, inc] x6 (18)

R4: Sc, inc, [2 sc, inc] x5, sc (24)

R6-9: [Sc] x27 (27) 4 rounds

R10: [7 sc, invdec] x3 (24)

R11: [Sc, invdec] x8 (16)

Leaving the yarn attached, set aside while you prepare the stem.


Using pliers, twist one end of your wire into a circular shape approximately 1/2″ (1.5cm) wide, with the long end of the wire coming out as close to the centre of the circle as possible.

Insert the wire into the soil with the long end coming out of the centre of the magic ring.

Trim the wire to your desired length + 2cm. I wanted my stem to be 4 cm long so I made my wire 6cm.

Using pliers, fold the end over by 1cm.

Picking up where we left off on the soil, start stuffing the soil and continue to stuff as you go.

R12: [Invdec] x8 (8)

Cut the yarn leaving a tail and pull through last st. Do not close up yet.

Bring a long length of green yarn (approximately 40cm, this will vary depending on the length of your stem) up through the bottom of the soil and out through the centre of the magic ring.

Wrap the yarn firmly around the wire making sure that the wraps don’t overlap each other and that none of the wire is showing through. Stop when the yarn is snug against the folded end.

Add some fabric glue to the exposed wire and place your heart on top so that it’s covering the wire completely.

Bring excess green yarn up through the bottom of the heart and secure by weaving in and out of the heart a few times.

Cinch the heart closed around the wire and hide end inside the heart.

With the front of the heart facing forward, sew leaves to the soil one on each side of the stem.

Secure all green ends and close the bottom of the soil by weaving the ending yarn tail through the front loops only of the final round and pulling to close. Hide the end inside the soil.

Place soil inside the pot.
