Crochet Pattern: Valentine’s Mini Motif

By Amy 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! P1160352 (copy)

    I don’t know if it’s just my computer or what. I love your blog. But every time I follow a link from an email to a pattern here, where the picture should be is one that says ‘please install video downloader to continue’. If I try refreshing the page, I can catch just a glimpse of what the photo of the pattern looks like and then the other one is back. It is very frustrating.
