In the spirit of love & Valentines Joy of Motion is ready to share  another list of ideas. It’s a short list of 5 ideas to crochet for valentines.


1. Hearts:

It’s the most obvious thing to crochet for valentines. It’s the very symbol of what valentines 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 valentines 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. Here’s what i found when searching for “heart” & “crochet”.

2. 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 valentines. With a pair of mittens like these you it’s perfect.

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:



3. Candle covers

Joy of Motion have had candle covers on other lists several times before, however it’s perfect for valentines as well.

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 before Christmas.

4. Sleeping mask

A sleeping mask is quite a cute (or sexy) idea to crochet for valentines. It’s 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.

I found it as a pin on Pinterest & you can see this here:



5. A gift for your loved one:

Well, this is really an unlimited & vague idea. However valentines is really a day for celebrating your loved one, & nothings better than making something for him/her. Since crochet is quite often a woman’s hobby, I’ve searched for a few crochet ideas for men on Pinterest.

There is “hat”, “men” & “crochet”, that is really an idea that you can make before the big day.
