Valentine’s Day Crochet Gift Ideas – 23 Free Patterns

Everybody panic!! Valentine’s day is just two weeks away. I’ve rounded up some Valentine’s Day crochet patterns which would make awesome gifts to your partner, your galentine, or yourself.

Each pattern is:

  • FREE, because so close to Christmas, this can be an expensive time of year
  • EASY, so a motivated beginner could create the pieces – or an experienced crocheter could whip them up in no time
  • FAST, because it’s only two weeks until V Day!

Now, I haven’t separated out this list into “crocheted gifts for guys,” and “crocheted gifts for women,” because you know your beau better than I do. All the items in this list are great, and who’s to say that a women can’t enjoy a crocheted cactus? Instead I’ve separated it out into what the patterns are, starting with…


Crocheted gift ideas to wear

What’s lovelier than saying to your honey, “I want you to be warm and snug”? Not much, especially if you enjoy the kind of climate where Feburary is cold, cold, cold! Check out these wearable crochet gift ideas:

Crocheted chain loop scarf

Worked with a whopping 9mm hook, you do have time to crochet this infinity scarf before Valentine’s day!

Here’s another twist on the crocheted braid – they’re everywhere at the moment! Instead of chains, this scarf uses strips of crochet.

The key to this fun gift is all in the presentation!

I bet you know a Star Wars fan! This simple beanie is embellished to look like a Storm Trooper helmet. Romantic? Maybe not, but for a super-fan, it would make an incredibly thoughtful gift!

Chunky Fishermans Beanie

Can an item be both fashionable and homemade? YES!

Crocheted Boot Cuffs

Keep cozy – boot cuffs keep icy wind from whistling down into your boots! This pattern features a neat scalloped edging, which you could omit for a more masculine look.

Easy Peasy Fingerless Mittens

Keep your hands warm, and the rest of you will be warm too! These fingerless mitts look as easy-peasy as the name.

Nifty Nose Warmer

Crocheted Nose Warmer Sad man

I keep threatening to make a nose warmer for my boyfriend, but I fear he’d pull a face like this guy in the photo! (Obligatory link.) It would still make a cute gag gift for lovers in cold climates.


Amigurumi and Toy Crocheted Gifts

This is an amigurumi blog, after all! These sweet little gifts will show your Valentine how much you care.

This would definitely be an unexpected gift! I think it might be lovely for a bookworm, especially paired with that new novel you know they’ve been eyeing.

Crocheted Cactuses

A cactus has been on my list of things to crochet for a while now! I love the modern, clean look of this pattern.

Button Flowers Crochet

How cute are these button flowers? I think it’s so clever the way the button is integrated into the design. Whip up a few and present a bouquet of flowers to your valentine!

Tiny Crocheted Hearts

Valentine's day crochet heart pattern

These crocheted hearts only need 15 stitches! You could whip up a whole pile in time for Valentine’s day. What would you do with them, you ask? Try fixing one to a card, sewing one to a hairclip, or making a garland.

From the pattern notes:

What’s that? You’ve always wanted to crochet your very own smiling piece of crap? WELL NOW YOU CAN.

Enough said.

A Giant Granny Square – WIP Wednesday

I’ve had this beautiful ball of lace weight yarn for a couple of years now. I’m turning it into a giant granny square.
