Crochet Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day

Crochet Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day – 40 Free Patterns

Everybody panic!! Valentine’s day is just a couple of weeks away. I’ve rounded up some crochet gift ideas for Valentine’s Day 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 a couple of weeks until V-Day!

Now, I haven’t separated out this list into “crocheted gift ideas 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 Scarfs
