You’re definitely going to wow your special someone with one (or all!) of these 13 heartfelt Valentines Day crochet patterns.
February 14th… the most romantic day of the year! But with so many novelty Valentine’s Day gifts to choose from, it can be tricky to know what to choose, or if your sweetheart will even appreciate a novelty gimmick or a predictable box of chocolates. Well. If you’re handy with a needle and ball of yarn, why not consider crocheting your own Valentine’s Day gift?
Making a gift yourself makes it a lot more meaningful and shows that you really put love into it. You can stick to the basics by crocheting a super cute plush toy, similar to the ones you’d find on the store shelves.
Alternatively, you can opt for something a little more quirky, such as a funky cushion or a mug hug to show your lover just how much you care!
