Pizza My Heart Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern

If there’s one food that has a pizza my heart, it’s definitely pizza! I could eat it everyday, and still want more. While I was growing up my family and I would get pizza every Friday night (and often a few Sundays too, haha) for as long as I can remember. That tradition has stuck with me, and has helped develop a deep love of pizza. My husband and I have even continued the tradition of once a week pizza because he loves it as much as I do. So of course I had to design a crochet pizza, the Pizza My Heart free crochet pattern!

After the first time of hearing the pun Pizza my Heart, I knew it would be one of my favorite puns hands down because pizza holds such a special place in my heart. I originally designed a cross stitch pattern that centers around it, but after deciding to do my Puntastic pattern collection for the year, I picked Pizza my Heart as the pun for February. Love and pizza go hand in hand for me! That’s how this adorable heart shaped crochet pizza came into being.

Pizza My Heart FREE Crochet Pattern Amigurumi Pattern & Video Tutorial by ECLAIREMAKERY.COM

To make this pizza, I used Mary Maxim Amigurumi yarn, which is a weight 3 cotton blend yarn, that is perfect for amigurumi. It’s light weight gives it the ability to be used in all sorts of ways, and is nice a soft when you work it up. The pattern overall is beginner friendly, especially when going hand in hand with my video tutorial! It uses single crochets for the majority of the work, with some bobble stitches thrown in for the pepperonis. By making this, you’ll even learn how to join two pieces together to make one piece. It’s a really fun pattern to make, and you’ll have it made in no time!

Supplies:

  • Yarn weight 3, DK yarn in Brown, yellow, orange, and red
    • I used Mary Maxim Amigurumi Yarn in red, orange, yellow, and brown, which is a great for making amigurumi. It is a cotton blend yarn that gives the amigurumi great body while still being soft. You could also use:
    •  

  • G/6 4.0mm crochet hook (I like to use Athena’s Elements ergonomic crochet hooks because they help bring down my wrist and arm pain significantly. You can get a whole set of them for a great deal on Amazon below.)

 

  • 8mm safety eyes and backings (I got a set of safety eyes on amazon that had sizes ranging from 6mm-12mm for the cost of the individual ones, and then you can use them for any type of amigurumi. They’ve worked really great for me! You can get the set below.)

 

  • Embroidery Needle
  • Black embroidery thread

Stitches Used:

  • Rnd = Round
  • St = Stitch
  • Sc = single crochet
  • Dec = decrease
  • Bobble = bobble stitch (*yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull through two loops,* repeat till you have six loops on your hook, then yarn over and pull yarn through all six) If you’ve never done a bobble stitch before, check out my Youtube video below on my channel E’Claire Makery that shows how to do it!
  •  
  • * – repeat everything in between two *
  • ( ) – instructions or stitch count at end of round

Notes:

  • Pattern uses U.S. terminology.
  • Made in continuous rounds with no joining. Mark first stitch of round with a stitch marker.
  • This pattern is made by starting with two crochet rounds made separately that are joined together by single crocheting to create one piece. This process is detailed in my video tutorial.
  • Cheese color is made using two strands of yarn, but you could easily use a two toned yarn to make the affect as well.

Peppermint Ornaments 3 Ways

Peppermint Ornaments 3 Ways: Free Crochet Patterns by E'Claire Makery

Peppermint candies, the iconic Christmas candies that bring about festive cheer wherever they’re given. I love the fresh minty taste of them, and the pretty swirls of red and white, or the rainbow colors that they sometimes come in! Since I love this Christmas candy so much, I knew that I needed to make some peppermint ornaments to decorate my tree with this holiday season. So I created 3 different peppermint ornaments as a part of my Christmas collection.

My Amazon Picks

Candy Swirl: (Using Candy Accent Colors)

In 4 different colors, Ch 40, fasten off, leave a tail for sewing on one of the chains

Then line up 4 chains in the color order you’d like, and cut off the yarn ends of 3 of the chains. Then twist them together. Roll the twisted chains up into a swirl, and taking one of the long strands of yarn you left on the chain, sew the chains together in their swirl.

I’ve also created a video tutorial for how to make this candy swirl! You can check it out on my Youtube channel below:

Candy Cane Swirl: Using Really Red and White

Ch 40, fasten off, leave a tail for sewing on one of the chains

Then line up the 2 chains and cut off the yarn ends of 1 of the chains. Then twist them together. Roll the twisted chains up into a swirl, and taking one of the long strands of yarn you left on the chain, sew the chains together in their swirl. The same Candy Swirl Ornament video shows the same technique. 

Candy Cane Ornament: Using Really Red and White

Making one in each color, ch 30, fasten off.

Take the pipe cleaner, and twist the chains around the pipe cleaner. When you reach the end, fold the ends of the pipe cleaner to secure the chains on it. Then bend it to be the shape of a candy cane, and trim the ends.

Figgy Pudding Ornament: FREE Crochet Pattern

Figgy Pudding Ornament FREE Crochet Pattern by E'Claire Makery

When I was a kid, around Christmas time I was always confused at what figgy pudding was. Honestly, I thought in We Wish You a Merry Christmas that they were saying Piggy Pudding, which I wondered what on earth that could be. Why would you want to have a dessert with pig in it? (Oh silly me, haha.) As I grew older, though I still have never eaten any figgy pudding, I do love the way that it looks! Who doesn’t love the sweet little holly berries and frosting on top?? Since I love the way it looks so much, I decided to make an ornament pattern of this iconic dessert. Presenting, my Figgy Pudding Ornament!

This sweet little ornament is another one of the designs I created for my collaboration with Premier Yarns. It can be a great little crocheted treat to bring as a gift to your Christmas parties, a fun addition to your tree, or you could even substitute the stuffing to make it into a sachet! It’s a super fast project that can be made in no time at all.

I loved creating this ornament with the Premier Yarns Everyday yarn! It works up wonderfully for amigurumi by having a sturdy fabric that is also super soft. It practically does whatever you want it to, which makes it one of my favorite yarns to work with.

Snowflake Sugar Cookie Ornament: FREE Crochet Pattern

Snowflake Sugar Cookie Ornament Free Crochet Pattern by E'Claire Makery

One of my most favorite memories of the Christmas season is making homemade Christmas cookies with my mom and sister in all sorts of shapes and sizes, with brightly colored frosting smeared across our faces from “testing” it out. A lot of times we’d eat so much of the cookie dough we’d made that we would never have any leftover bits from rolling out the cookies. All of those memories inspired this design in my Christmas collection: my Snowflake Sugar Cookie Ornament.

 

I love getting to make small and special Christmas decorations that I’ll get to use on my tree every year. My family always gets a new ornament every year to commemorate something that happened for us during the year. This one celebrates my love of baking and start of my new business! I’m so happy I get to share it with you too. This project is so simple and quick that you can whip one up in less than a half hour! Now that’s a quick crochet project that I like. This has been one of my favorite design themes this year, and has inspired me to make 2 other sugar cookie designs!

 

Premier Yarn’s everyday yarn is perfect for this sweet and easy crocheted sugar cookie. The yarn is soft, and wonderful to work with, and I love getting to make a bunch of these ornaments with it! As a special Christmas treat to my followers, Premier Yarn is giving you 10% off of all of your online orders using the code EM10%. So feel free to treat yourself to some yarn as a special Christmas gift from us!
