Crochet Pattern: Valentine XO Applique

By Emilee Gettle – 3 Comments
It seems like I’m on a roll with a Valentine theme. I love quick projects that can be made in a jiffy and that can be used multiple ways. This week’s Valentine XO (or hugs and kisses) appliqué can be used for so many projects. You could use it for scrapbooking or making handmade cards. You could also make several, join them together, and create a cute trim. You could also join them into a headband. It’s also great in pastel colors for sprucing up baby gifts. The sky is the limit with this ultra-easy project. If you are new to fingering yarn this pattern is perfect.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 2 1/4″ (6 cm) long, 1 1/4″ (3 cm) wide

Fingering Weight Yarn (approximately 2 yards each of red and pink)
Crochet Hook B (2.25 mm)

3 sc stitches = 1/2″ (1 cm)
