Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and you still haven’t found the perfect gift.
Fear not! Here’s a quick round-up of 10+ last-minute heart-themed, FREE crochet patterns you (and your loved one) will adore!
OK, an afghan might be a bit ambitious at such short notice, but how about a bag, a scarf, or even a simple set of coasters? This granny square, from RedAgape, has got you covered – all that’s holding you back is your imagination!
For the geek in your life, what better gift than this 8-bit slouchy from Whistle & Ivy? It’s so quick to work up, you could even make yourself one to match!
Hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s Day, as this wall hanging, from Attic24, demonstrates. Make one for Valentine’s, then use it to decorate your home throughout the year.
C2C is a popular crochet technique widely used in afghans/”graphghans”. The Purple Poncho puts a spin on the C2C tradition, with this adorable soft and squishy heart pillow.
Fill a mason jar with your partner’s favourite sweet treats or a few love notes, and finish off with this cozy from The Stitchin’ Mommy: voilà! BONUS: The Stitchin’ Mommy has a Free Cup Full of Love Crochet Coffee Cozy Pattern, too!
If you don’t have a mason jar lying around, why not make Yarnspirations’ candy basket, instead? Once the sweets have all been devoured, use it as a year-round trinket dish.
Make your loved one feel jammy this Valentine’s Day with A Boy & Bunting’s Jammy Dodger pattern, designed by self-confessed “mancrafter extraordinaire”, Matt.
Whip up one of Happyamigurumi’s amigurumi hearts in a super chunky yarn, stitch on some eyes and a mouth, and gift to your partner to hug when you’re apart! Alternatively, make a few small hearts in different colours with dk yarn, and use them as accessories/decoration.
Another twist on the C2C graphghan tradition, this runner from RepeatCrafterMe is the perfect adornment to your candle-lit table on Valentine’s evening.
Not strictly heart-themed, but these appliques/photo props from One Dog Woof are too cute not to feature. Plus, there are two patterns for the price of zero – it’s a win-win!
