Suggested materials:
* 1.5 mm crochet hook with super fine weight yarn (1/Fingering) in the colours of your choice for the skin, the wings, the shorts and the halo

* Fine weight yarn (2/Sport) Bella 100% cotton from Fios Pingouin

Size: 
I got a finished piece measuring approximately 16 cm. Please have in mind that the actual size of your finished item may change depending on your yarn tension and the materials used. Make sure you adapt the size and placement of the eyes if you use different sizes of hook and yarn.

 

PATTERN: BOTTOM-UP / LEVEL: BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE

My abbreviations (based on US terms):
* MR - magic ring
* ST - stitch
* CH - chain
* SL ST - slip stitch
* SC - single crochet
* INC - increase (2sc in the same st)
* DEC - decrease (sc 2 together)
* HDC - half double crochet
* DC - double crochet
* HTR - half treble crochet
* TR - treble crochet
* (  )xNUMBER - number of times you have to repeat everything inside the brackets
* [  ] - total number of stitches on the row

Tips:
* If you don’t know how to do one of the crochet stitches used in this pattern you can search on YouTube for “name of the stitch + tutorials” and you’ll find some super easy and detailed video tutorials for beginners. 
* The rows where I don’t mention doing a chain between them are worked in continuous rounds, so it’ll be easier if you use a stitch marker to mark every last stitch from the row.

R1: 6sc in the MR [6]

5.2) CURLY HAIR:
R1: Insert the hook between two stitches of the last row on the cap, like if you were going to do a front post stitch. Ch5, 3sc in the second st from hook and in the next 3st. Sl st in the next 2st of the row from the cap. Repeat until the end of this row.
R2: Do sl st into 2st going up to the next 2 rows from the cap. By doing that, you’ll skip a row and start to do the curls in the next one. Continue making ch5, 3sc in each st next, 2sl st on the row from the cap.
Repeat R2 until filling the whole cap with curls.
Fasten off. You can sew or glue the hair in the head if you want.

6) Heart: (2 mm crochet hook / Fine weight yarn (2/Sport) in the colour of your choice)

6.1) PART 1:
R1: 6sc in the MR [6]
R2: (inc)x6 [12]

6.2) PART 2:
R1-R4: do the same as part 1, but do not fasten off and insert a stitch marker in the last st.
R5: Insert the hook into the st next to the last you did in part 1. Do 18sc around it and insert the hook into the st next to the first st attached to the part 1 (next to the stitch marker) and do another 18sc around it. It'll create a hole in the middle, which we'll have to sew in the end to close it. The last st you must do it's the one with the stitch marker on it. [36]
R6-R7 (2 rows): 1sc in each st around [36]
R8: (4sc, dec)x6 [30]
R9-R10 (2 rows): 1sc in each st around [30]

R15: 1sc in each st around [18]
R16: (sc, dec)x6 [12]
R17: (dec)x6 [6]
Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Close this hole made at the end of the heart, then pass the thread through it until it reaches the hand, so you can sew it together. Do it for both hands and pass the thread through the heart again to sew that first hole made in the beginning from joining the 2 parts. Hide the thread inside the heart and fasten off.

7) Wings: make 2 (1.5 mm crochet hook / Super fine weight yarn (1/Fingering) in the colour of your choice)
R1: 3sc, 3hdc, 3dc, 3htr, 3tr inside the MR, close the ring [15]
R2: ch3 and turn, 3tr, 3htr, 3dc, 3hdc, 3sc [15]
R3: ch1 and turn, 1sc in each st around [15]
R4: ch1 and turn, sl st, (4dc in the same st, sl st in the next st)x7 [15]
Fasten off and leave a long tail. Use this tail to sew the wings in the body.

8) Halo: (1.5 mm crochet hook / Super fine weight yarn (1/Fingering) in the colour of your choice)
Make a knot with the thread in a piece of handicraft wire. Then start to make single crochets through the wire until you reach the desired size for the halo, and sl st in the first st. Attach the halo into the hair using the wire you still have left.

9) Finishing touches:
Now you just have to assemble all the parts, if you haven’t yet, and apply some blush makeup to the cupid’s cheeks to make it cuter.
