…or any time you want to say I love you with a crochet gift
I don’t want to limit this crochet gift idea to valentines day, because why can’t you give people “I love you gifts” anytime you want?
The answer; you can do whatever you want! I think the random special sweet gift is the best, even better than crochet valentines gifts.
But since it is V day coming up, I wanted to make a small and easy project for you to make for your loved ones.
It’s one of the easiest, smallest crochet gift ideas I’ve got but what could be more special than ” I love you”? My husband just said “we won the lottery”. I guess that WOULD be pretty special but not as “special” as he is 🤣
Materials for your crochet gift/valentines gift project
I used a #4 medium weight yarn, but only because that’s what I had left over. I used two colors, color A for the letters and color B for the heart. So, you just need two colors of some crap yarn of any size you have laying around.
This is a GREAT scrap yarn project.
I also used two different sized hooks, but I explain all that below.
I hope you spread the love with this one all year long and enjoy making something for others.
