There are a few gift items traditionally associated with Valentine’s Day – namely candy, flowers, and stuffed animals. These Amigurumi (Japanese for “crocheted doll”) are cute, easy, and perfect for
giving as Valentine gifts. Best of all, the crochet patterns are free!
Amigurumi Hearts Free Crochet Pattern
This heart pattern comes in three sizes. They are cute on their own, or could also be added to any animal Amigurumi pattern to make it into a Valentine’s Day animal. The hearts could also be embroidered with Valentine sentiments like “I love you” or “Be mine.”
