Valentine's Day is just round the corner and what a lovely opportunity to crochet something cute to give as gifts!
I've been browsing online to get some inspiration and found the most adorable projects. I just can't wait to get hooking!
I have so many people in mind I'd love to gift this year, so I think I'll stick to smaller projects that won't take me too much time to finish.
I curated my favourite list of Valentine's crochet items and would love to share them with you here.

Just a quick note, some of these patterns require you to start with a Magic Circle or Ring. If you're not sure how to do this, I have a great post for you that'll surely help you figure this out.
Guys, I simply can't get over the cuteness of these hearts! And there's so much one could do with them? Add them as embellishments to an amigurumi toy for a child, crochet a small basket and fill up with hearts, make them into key-chains, you name it.
What do you think of this Little Love Devil? Isn't he just the most adorable devil you've ever seen?
I'm pretty sure this would make a great gift for teenagers (or grown-ups who are still teenagers at heart!)
Don't be intimidated by this pattern if you're still a beginner. The instructions are written very clearly and you'll be sure to make a super cute devil you'll be proud of 🙂
