20 Free Valentine's Day Crochet Patterns

Dear fellow crocheters,

It's T-15 days until Valentine's Day!!

I'm imagining two different reactions to that announcement...
Excitement and joy, for those who are soooo looking forward to Valentine's Day! 馃槏

And, on the other hand, crippling anxiety from procrastinating on making handmade gift(s) for your Valentine... 馃槺

Or, I suppose it's possible to have a mixture of both these feelings!  I'm here to try and provide some suggestions for myself those who fall that latter category. 馃槄

For those of you - like me - who have waited until the last minute (or last two weeks!) to get this wagon on the road, you're probably scrambling to find a project that is easy and relatively quick to whip up in this time crunch.  You might still be crazy enough and stubborn enough to want to churn out a handmade gift, because whatever you do, you DON'T want to be getting that typical, store-bought box of chocolates, Valentine card, or red roses.  Naw.  Handmade from the heart is your motto!  Whatever tomorrow brings, you are DETERMINED to drop some (hopefully figurative) blood, sweat, and tears to create that wonderful, loving handmade gift to express your undying love for your significant other (or parent... or sibling... or friend!).

If that describes you, then you're in luck!

This year, I've compiled a collection of FREE, Valentine-themed pattern ideas that are beginner/intermediate-friendly and (mostly) quick to make!  There are designs that range from wearables (headbands!) to usables (mug cozies!), to playables (toy sets!) and even huggables (amigurumi, stuffed animals, etc.)!!!

So without further ado, here are the...
