Buddy the Heart - Free Pattern Friday

Today's free pattern is Buddy the Heart! Just in time for Valentine's day! They work up super quickly, so you can make a bunch. They'd also be great to add catnip in for a cat toy. :)

Here's what you'll need:
WW yarn
F hook (G or E would work as well)
*With F hook, finished heart is about 3 in.

*He is worked from the bottom up in two layers

Here's how you make him: 

Make 2:

R1: Ch2, 2 sc in 2nd chain from hook.
R2: ch 1, turn. 2 sc in each st. (4)
R3: ch1, turn. sc across. (4)
R4: ch 1, turn. 2sc in first st, sc next 2, 2sc in last st. (6)
R5: Ch1, turn. Sc across. (6)
R6: ch 1, turn. 2sc in first st, sc next 4, 2sc in last st. (8)
R7: Ch1, turn. Sc across. (8)
R8: ch 1, turn. 2sc in first st, sc next 6, 2sc in last st. (10)
R9: Ch1, turn. Sc across. (10)
(Don't break yarn, continue to first hump)

First hump:
R1: ch1, turn. 2 sc first st, sc next 3, 2sc next st (leave remaining st unworked for now) (7)
R2: ch1, turn. sc in each st (7)
R3: ch1, turn. sc2tog, sc3tog, sc2tog (3)
R4: ch 1, turn. sc3tog (1)
f/o

Reattach yarn on other side 
R1: ch1, turn. 2 sc first st, sc next 3, 2sc next st (7)
R2: ch1, turn. sc in each st (7)
R3: ch1, turn. sc2tog, sc3tog, sc2tog (3)
R4: ch 1, turn. sc3tog (1)

Sc around entire heart. 
At bottom corner (sc, ch 1, sc) and between two humps, sl st 
(See pics for clarification)
Sc, ch 1, sc in bottom "corner" st.

Sl st in two st between humps



Add safety eyes/embroider eyes and mouth. Place two "wrong sides" (the sides you don't want showing) together and sl st around through both layers of heart. Make sure you stuff before you close it completely! Close, f/o and weave in ends. :)

Now you're done! I can't wait to see pics!
