And why wouldn't they, theres hearts ripe for snatching everywhere!
Hey look, that little guy caught a big one!

Lol, it's an amigurumi of a Heartless just in time for Valentines Day, yay!!!
I've been wanting to make my own heartless (EDIT: forgot to mention it's from the Kingdom Hearts series of video games) for awhile now, and the impending Valentines Day just seemed like a good reason to finally get around to it. ^_^
The best part is, he's small, so I came up with the idea, made the pattern, and crocheted him all in one day!
I have to mention though, that it wouldn't have been possible for him to be so cute without the big heart he has, and I made it using the wonderful pattern (look it up on here, it's great!) by Maggielove! THANKS MAGGIELOVE!!!! Grin
Now for more pic's!
Here he is without the heart so you can see him a bit better. He has little picot fingers lol!
 
Here he is with my hand for a side view and size comparison.

And finally, just one more cute pic.  Cheesy


So snuggly! Thanks for looking!

EDIT:I wrote up my pattern for this, and am giving it out free. ^_^ You can get it on this post, and on my blog. Note: this is only the pattern for the heartless, the heart wasn't patterned by me, but can be found on craftster in a post by Maggielove.

Heartless Pattern
Materials needed: 1) worsted weight yarn in 2 colors.
A.   Black (everything but eyes)
B.    Yellow (eyes)
      2) An f/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook
      3) Fiberfill
Note: this entire pattern is worked in the round. Stuff pieces with fiberfill as you go before they become too narrow to fill. Dont over-stuff, just use enough so the piece retains its shape. If you find stuffing difficult at any time, try using your crochet hook to cram that fiberfill in there!

Head
Round 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Inc around in each sc. (12)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (18)
Rnd 4: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 8 times. (27)
Rnd 5-7: sc in each sc around. (27)
Rnd 8: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 8 times. (18)
Rnd 9: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (12)
Rnd 10: dec 6 times. (6)
Rnd 11: 1 dec. (5) Cast off.

Body
Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: Inc around in each sc. (12)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (18)
Rnd 4-6: sc in each sc around. (18)
Rnd 7: *2 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last *  3 times, sc in each of the last two sc. (13)
Rnd 8-10: sc in each sc around. (13)
Rnd 11: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 6 times. (7)
Rnd 12: sc in each sc around. (7) Cast off.

Eyes
Rnd 1: With yellow yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc) Cast off. Make two.

Antennae
*Note: this one piece of the pattern only is done in rows, not rounds.*
Row 1: With black yarn, chain 16. In 2nd chain from hook, make an sc. Sc in each of the next two chains. Slip st. in next chain to finish. (3 sc) Cast off. Make two. (Weave in your yarn tail towards the end of the antennae with the scs. This fatter end is the base of your antennae and is to be attached to the head. Optionally, if your yarn tail is long enough, you could use it to sew the antennae to the head.)

Legs
Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2-4: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 5: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 6: sc in each sc around. (4) Cast off. Make two.

Feet
Rnd 1: With black yarn, 4 sc in ring. (4sc)
Rnd 2: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (6)
Rnd 3-5: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 6: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 7: Dec one time. (3) Cast off. Make two.


Arms
Rnd 1: With black yarn, 6 sc in ring. (6sc)
Rnd 2: sc in each sc around. (6)
Rnd 3: *1 sc, dec*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (4)
Rnd 4-5: sc in each sc around. (4)
Okay, now I would like to point out that this pattern gets tricky a bit. If you have been stuffing the arm thus far (I hope you did a little), stop doing it here. The arm is finished; the rest of the pattern is forming the hand of the heartless (the hand is not stuffed). Dont cast off or anything, its still one continuous piece.
Rnd 6: *1 sc, inc*; repeat from first *, to last * 1 more time. (6)
Rnd 7: sc in each sc around. (6)
Now, you want to take the opening you have of the hand and slip stitch it shut. (Pinch the opening shut and slip stich across both sides of the opening, going under the vs of the stiches on both sides.) The hand is now complete. Dont cast off!
Once you have slip stitched across, chain 4. Slip stich this into the base of the hand. (1 picot)
This forms a picot stitch, and is the first of the heartlesss fingers. Do this picot stitch two more times evenly across the base of the hand to make the two remaining fingers. (3 picot total).
Cast off. Make two.

Congratulations! Youre done. As for assembly instructions, there isnt much to say as this pattern is old and my hand written notes dont include assembly. It is, however, fairly logical where each piece goes. (Example, the legs probably go on the bottom of the body, yknow, in typical humanoid fashion.) Just look at the photo on the first page and use it as your model, or sew the pieces on in any other way you wish for different poses. ^_^
Thanks for using my pattern!
