Crochet Pattern: Valentine’s Mini MotifBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 5 Comments
|Valentine’s Day is almost here! And it just so happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Here’s a pattern you can make to celebrate the holiday that is simple and gives a new twist to square motifs. Starting with a circle, you build out in 3 easy rows for a cute and curved square. Add the quaint heart included in the pattern or any other little appliqué. It’s quick to make, which is just perfect for making more than one. Experiment with colors and tell me how it turns out for you!|
