Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and we like to think of this as a holiday to celebrate everyone we love having in our lives. What better way to do that than with some wonderful handmade projects that come straight from the heart? We have gathered up some of our favorite Valentine’s inspired knit and crochet patterns, and some of them are small enough that you’ll have plenty of time to make them before the 14th!
The Heart to Heart Sweater is a darling free pattern you can download directly from the Love of Knitting website. It is covered in colorful hearts, knit in intarsia, and sized for kiddos age 3-8.
The Love Your Stripes sweater from the Spring 2012 Issue of Love of Knitting is sized for ages 2-12 and features a heart worked in easy duplicate stitches. The classic stripes are sure to please even the pickiest little fashionista.
The flowery Book Buddies from the Spring 2013 Issue of Love of Crochet would be a great gift for a book lover in your life. Give one of these charming bookmarks instead of (or in addition to!) a bouquet of their favorite flowers.
We’ll take any excuse you can imagine to stitch something wonderful out of yarn, and Valentine’s Day gives us the fabulous opportunity to make cute projects for the people we care about. Do you have any Valentine’s crafts planned?
