VALENTINE’S CROCHET PATTERNS IN THE SPIRIT OF LOVE:
Joy of Motion has been a fan of making crochet idea lists for quite a while now, & in this article you’ll learn about some great Valentine’s crochet patterns. Valentine’s is truly a day when you appreciate the loved ones around you, & it’s often hearts that comes into mind when you think about February 14th. In Norwegian it’s often called “All Hearts Day”, which gives a clear association with the symbol of the heart.
Valentine’s is also about romance & love. It’s the day where you spend time together with your boyfriend or girlfriend. It’s a day for candlelight & dinner together. If you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend you might send that typical anonymous Valentine’s card, & maybe it’s the day you let your future boyfriend/girlfriend know that you’re interested.

1. Crochet Hearts:
It’s the most obvious thing to crochet for Valentine’s. It’s the very symbol of what Valentine’s is all about – LOVE. Hearts can be crocheted in a lot of ways & can also be used in the same amount of ways. You can crochet hearts for decoration anywhere in your home; like heart garlands. You can also crochet smaller hearts to decorate a Valentine’s card to your loved one. It’s just your imagination that limits you.
As earlier have I used Pinterest as inspiration for this blog post, & you’ll find lots of heart crochet patterns over there. I found a pattern for crochet hearts from Michelle from The Painted Hinge, that I really liked. Just follow the link to see it.
2. Crochet Boyfriend-Girlfriend Mittens
I call them boyfriend-girlfriend mittens, others might call it couples mittens. Its those mittens where you share one mitten & can hold hands while wearing it. It’s really quite romantic to be able to hold hands on Valentine’s. With a pair of mittens like these it’s perfectly romantic.
I’ve searched for a crochet pattern for these mittens, but haven’t been able to find it. However I’ve fund a pin for a pair that is sold handmade over on Etsy. Check out the pin here:

Crochet Candle Covers are perfect for Valentine’s as well as many other occations. It’s the typical picture of love & romance together with candlelight. Setting the mood for a romantic dinner with some candle light makes it perfect. This is also quite a fast project & you’ll for sure be able to finish a few right before Valentine’s.
Joy of Motion has at least 8 designs for crochet candle covers for glass jars. They are all made with different crochet stitches, which gives unique light. You can read more about them by following the link below.

A sleeping mask is quite a cute (or sexy) idea to crochet for Valentine’s. It all depends on how it’s made. It’s was a pattern by Maryanka on Ravelry that have given me this idea. Joy of Motion haven’t tried this pattern, but really loves how it looks.
