Beginning at the top of the heart.
Start with magic adjustable ring.
Rd 1: Work 6 sc into the center of ring (6)Rd 2: Work 2 sc in each st around (12) Rd 3: * Sc in next st, work 2 sc in next st, repeat from * around (18)
Sl st in next st, cut yarn leaving 10” long tail and pull through last loop. You've just finished the first top half of the heart (Top A).
To make another top half repeat the rounds 1-3 as follows:
Rd 1 : Work 6 sc into the center of ring (6) Rd 2: Work 2 sc in each st around (12) Rd 3: * Sc in next st, work 2 sc in next st, repeat from * around (18)
The second top half of the heart is finished (Top B). Do not cut yarn.
Rd 4 : Sc in next 9 sts of the Top B.
Merge the halves together: Insert hook into first stitch after sl st made on Top A and continue to make 1 sc in all 18 stitches. Insert hook back into the Top B and work 1 sc in next 9 sc. (One round completed with 36 sc)
With the tail from Top A close the gap between the two top halves
Rd 5 : Sc around (36)
Rd 6 : * Sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog, repeat from * around (30) Rd 7: * Sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog, repeat from * around (24)
Rd 8: * Sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog, repeat from * around (18)
Rd 9: * Sc in next st, sc2tog, repeat from * around (12)
While stuffing make sure the tail you used to close the gap is not stuck inside, you'll need it later to pull tight and shape the heart.
Continue with “sc in next st, sc2tog” until you heave 5 scs left.
Cut yarn and pull it through last loop. Now pull the Top A tail tight to shape the heart and hide the tail inside with tapestry needle.
Weave tail through 5 scs and pull tight to close. Weave in end.
Your heart is finished!
