Heart with wings and crown

I originally found this pattern for a flying heart, here, but I didn't like the wings. I did however use that pattern for the heart though. I didn't know how to join the two parts needed in the heart and I found this tutorial, here, and it helped a lot.
So I used the idea from wings from the Snitch pattern, which can be found in the previous posting, but altered it. The pattern for the wings can be found below.
For the crown, I couldn't find a pattern the right size, so I made one up, it can also be found below.
I was telling my boyfriend about this one and as I described it I said it looked like those tattoo hearts with wings. I laughed and said I should make all the tattoos I want in amigurumis, because I can't have tattoos due to a metal allergy! So my quest will be to make tattoo amigurumis soon!
This is probably my favorite thing I've made so far! I absolutely love it!

St = Stitch
Sc = Single crochet
Dec = Decrease: Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
Inc = Increase: Work 2 single crochet into designated stitch

Ch 23, turn
Row1: 1 sc in each of the 22 stitches, ch1, turn
Row 2: * 1 sc in the next 3 stitches, ch1, turn
Row 3: Dec, sc, ch1, turn
Row 4: Dec, slip stitch in to the third stitch of second row, repeat from * three times
Finish, but don't cut the yarn too short. Use that yarn to sew the ends together and to sew the crown to the heart.

Row 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook(needs to be like this NOT in a magic ring). Ch 1, turn
Row 2: *2 sc, inc, 1 sc* repeat twice (10 sc). Ch 1, turn
Row 3: *sc, [sc, inc] 3 times* sc 3times (13). Ch 1, turn
Row 4: sc across (13) turn, do not ch 1 yet!
Row 5: [ch 6, sl to in next sc] repeat twice, [ch 3, sl to in next sc] repeat twice, [ch 4, sl to in next sc] repeat 3 times, [ch 3, sl to in next sc] repeat 4 times, [ch 2, sl to in next sc] repeat twice


  1. Nice..you know I love this one!

  2. I think this has to be my all time favorite you've made so far...and I LOVE THEM ALL!
