Looking for some cute patterns to crochet for Valentine’s Day? I was too, so I decided to comb Pinterest today, and look, it worked out in everyone’s favor! I found so many cute free crochet patterns for us to add to our ever-growing lists. But the underlying question is. . .would you rather receive yarn than flowers and chocolate?
Um. . .yes.
Crochet for Valentine’s Day
Since I’ve found a variety of different patterns, I’ve decided to segment them into groupings, for an easier read. Some of you are into hearts and roses, and others might be looking for something to make as a gift for someone else, or for your child to give at school. I like to include a lot of variety in my pattern collection posts, so I hope that you will find something useful! Also, I’ve kept this a list of free crochet patterns from the Internet. Some sites might require you to sign up to receive a copy you can print, but otherwise, I like free! Right?
Valentine Gifts to Crochet

Reversible Valentine’s Heart Crochet Pillow – MB Stitches
This pattern is really cool. It’s a pillow crocheted using the single crochet stitch and then the detail for the heart pattern is actually cross-stitched onto the crochet. I’ve seen this concept done a few times, and love the idea for a pillow, because the texture looks amazing! The two opposing panels are stitched together with both colors, giving a nice accent to the main design.
Candy Hearts Pillow – Pixel Perfect Crochet
I normally wouldn’t include two pillow designs in a roundup (unless it were about pillows, of course), but I had to include this one because of its sheer uniqueness. I’m glad I stumbled upon this blog because it is now on my list of favorites. This pillow is part one in a two part series of candy heart pillows. It’s done using the C2C stitch, which is a favorite one of mine, and is a colorful masterpiece, finished off with pom pom edges. This pillow definitely would get the conversation brewing about these conversation hearts.
