Gather supplies. You will need: yarn, in red, blue and purple, crochet hook (I used a 3.75 mm hook), stuffing, scissors, and a yarn needle.
1. ch 2. sc 8 in 2nd ch from hook. sl st to close. ch 1

17-? decrease around. I usually give up on finishing each round at this point and continue in a spiral to the end. Finish off.
Turn that bad boy around so the round-y side is up.
Near the pointy side, backstitch a small circle in blue. This will be your inferior vena cava.
Single crochet under your back stitch, all the way around.
Repeat until you have a nice sized artery.
Weave through the top tail, but leave the lower tail to back stitch a nice vein with. If you didn't leave enough of a tail, just use another bit of yarn.
Using your base colour, (or not lol) repeat the last few steps to make the aorta and another artery.
Repeat again with red to make the pulmonary artery. When weaving in your top bit, tack the pulmonary artery to the aorta so it doesn't stick out so much.
I back stitched the tail on the other side of the heart, just to mix it up a bit.
Et voilà! La cœur , c'est fini. (lol wut a doouche i bet she doesn't even know french lolol)
Feel free to use a thicker yarn/hook for a full sized heart, or a tiny one and embroidery floss for a teeny tiny pendant. OMG how cute would that be?
Also, send me pics for my ego is a needy bitch.
