And finally…

I will be donating 50% of ALL PDF sales of my Pride Heart Keychains Amigurumi Pattern to an LGBTQ+ charity! I might switch it up every few months, but to start with I’m going to donate to the Vancouver-based organization Rainbow Refugee.

Who is Rainbow Refugee?

Per their website: Founded in 2000, Rainbow Refugee is a Vancouver based community group that supports people seeking refugee protection in Canada because of persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression (SOGIE) or
HIV status.

Growing up in Vancouver, I always took for granted how safe and accepting the city is towards LGBTQ+ folks – not always perfect of course, but so much better than even many places in North America. Yet, there are millions of people around the world who live in daily fear of persecution for their sexual and gender identity. We still have a long ways to go, but I believe organizations such as Rainbow Refugee make an important difference by supporting LGBTQ+ refugees who are fleeing persecution.

I believe in full transparency so you have no doubt where this money is going. Therefore, each time I make a donation I will post the receipts on this page.

Pattern Notes

You will be working in a continuous spiral throughout. Use a stitch marker and do not join rounds or turn (unless otherwise stated).
 

I strongly recommend using the Invisible Colour Change method (see my tutorial post here) to reduce the visibility of the colour changes.

When reading the pattern, (_,_)*x means that you repeat the instructions in the bracket “x” number of times. For example, (Sc 1, Inc)*6 means to repeat (Sc 1, Inc) 6 times. The number in brackets at the end of each row is the total number of stitches you will have when you  finish that row.

Pattern Instructions

Basic Heart Pattern

The basic heart pattern is the same for all the Pride Hearts. The only difference is at what row you change colours for the various flag options. If you just want a solid coloured heart then you can follow the pattern below using one colour. The pattern starts from the bottom of the heart and works upwards.

Main Body of Heart

Round 1: Sc 5 in a Magic Circle (5)

Round 2: Sc around (5)

Round 3: Inc*5 (10)

Round 4: Sc around (10)

Round 5: (Sc 1, Inc)*5 (15)

Round 6: Sc around (15)

Round 7: (Sc 2, Inc)*5 (20)

Round 8: Sc around (20)

Round 9: (Sc 3, Inc)*5 (25)

Round 10: Sc around (25)

Round 11: (Sc 4, Inc)*5 (30)

Round 12: Sc around (30)

From here, you will continue in a spiral to make the first hump. Before you do so, make sure to tie off all the ends inside the heart.

First Hump

Round 1: Sc 15 (15)

Round 2: Sc into the first stitch of Round 1. Sc 14 more stitches around the hump. (15)

If you are changing colours for Round 2, I recommend doing the first stitch in the previous row’s colour. It will be easier to change colours in the second stitch of the row.

Round 3: (Sc 1, Dec)*5 (10)

Round 4: Dec*5 (5)

Finish off, leaving a long end. Stuff the heart (you will continue stuffing it as you create the second hump).

Second Hump

Round 1: Leaving a long end, join yarn with a Standing Single Crochet (see tutorial here) to the first unworked stitch from Round 12. Sc 14 more stitches around the hump. (15)

Round 2: Sc into the first stitch of Round 1 (this will create a hole between the humps, but don’t worry!). Dec 1, then (Sc 1, Dec)*4 (10)

You will sew up the hole between the humps later, using the long end from Row 1. Also, if you are changing colours for Row 2, please see my advice from the first hump.

Finish stuffing the heart.

Round 3: Dec*5 (5)

Finish off, leaving a long end, close up the holes, and weave in all ends.

Adding a Keychain

To create a yarn loop for attaching the keychain:

Using your preferred colour: Ch 11, then Sc into 2nd Ch from hook and Sc into the remaining 9 stitches (10)

Cut the yarn, leaving a long end.

The keychains I purchased consist of a split ring attached to a chain, and a separate open jump ring.  If you have something similar, follow my instructions for attaching an open jump ring to your heart.

If you have a keychain where the jump ring is already closed and can’t be easily opened, then skip to my instructions for attaching a closed jump ring to your heart.

If you have an OPEN jump ring on your keychain:  

Join the yarn into a loop and stitch it securely to the heart. To attach the keychain, insert the open jump ring through the chain of the keychain and then through the yarn loop you just made. Use pliers to close the jump ring tightly.

If you have a CLOSED jump ring on your keychain:

Do not sew the chains into a loop or stitch it to the heart yet. First, run the yarn through the jump ring. Then you can go ahead and sew the yarn into a loop and stitch it securely to your heart.
