Valentine's Day: Romantic gifts to knit and crochetPrint
Make Valentine's Day extra special this year!
We're here to help you get set for 14 February by knitting or crocheting your own gift for your loved-one - any crafter will tell you that a homemade present is far more personal than something shop bought.
You'll be pleased to know that we've got a number of wonderful patterns in our online store that will help spread the love this year.
And to give you some inspiration, we've shortlisted our favourites including quick and simple makes to others that are more of a challenge.
Scrawl an extra special Valentine's Day message to someone close with this sweet card. Simple and super-speedy to make, the elegant design features a crochet heart.
This pretty heart cushion will look gorgeous on a sofa all-year round. The finished make measures approximately 36 x 40cm.
These dainty striped hearts with handy twisted loops for hanging, will make a sweet keepsake for a loved-one. This pattern project requires an intermediate level of knitting knowledge.
This knitting pattern is fairly straight-forward to transform into a really chic item for the home. Frame this Scandinavian-inspired heart sampler once finished to give any house a wonderfully cosy feel.
Can you think of anyone who wouldn't love to wake up to a bunch of roses on Valentine's Day? We think this beautiful bouquet makes an even better gift than fresh blooms because they'll look perfectly perky for months to come.
Another bonus of this pattern? It's ideal for anyone new to crochet or someone keen to craft a gift quickly.
If, like us, a cosy night in is your idea of heaven on Valentine's Day, this hot water bottle will come in handy when you're snuggled up on the sofa. There's even a heart-shaped compartment for secret messages and love letters if the mood takes you.
Hearts and flowers are among the first things that spring to mind when we think of romance. So why not combine the two to make this elegant wreath? Any recipient would be proud to display it.
If romance isn't on the cards for you this year, treat yourself to this fun love motif sweater using our knitting pattern.
