Valentine’s Day is soon approaching so, it’s high time to start creating a few projects with this holiday in mind! This week’s project is perfect for winter evenings by the fire, as you think of doing something special for those you love. It is very quick and simple to crochet! It’s also a great project for those who are new to using fingering yarn. Finish it off by making a tiny card to tuck inside for someone special in your life. If you mail Valentine’s to loved ones, this project would be the perfect addition and a sweet handmade surprise for the recipient.

Red Fingering Yarn (approximately 1 yard)

Row 2-17: ch 2, turn, sc in each sc across

Finish off.

With red yarn, sc around the entire perimeter of the square. Then fold three corners to the center of the square, creating an envelope. Use needle and thread to stitch each seam together.

Add a love note and you’re finished!

    My Mom’s birthday is also Valentine’s Day. I am always on the lookout for cute Valentiney things that I think she would like. This is so cute and is a good pick me up as she just had hip replacement surgery and needs some cheering up.

    Thank you for your site> I’ve wanted to learn how to crochet for a long time but always got stuck not having a clue what I’m meant to do. How that I have a idea I can”t wait to start. Buying wool seem to not be so easy where I live in South Africa. I’ve heard it will come in with Easter. So for now I’m just practising.

    Thanks Liza
