Forever Love Crochet Hearts - Quick and Easy Make for Valentine’s Day (Download details here)

Do you need inspiration for what gifts to give on Valentine's Day? Well, I have the perfect gift that will last forever and you can make yourself!I'm talking about my Forever Love Crochet Hearts Range. It is called Forever Love because they are gifts that you can give to a loved one and they can keep them forever!


I've always felt that crochet items aren't used for Valentine's Day as much as they could be. Hearts can also be made as gifts for other celebrations. They can be loving gifts for an Anniversary, Birthday, Mother's Day, or for that "just because..." moment. There are so many things you can make.


My Forever Love Crochet Hearts can be made in different sizes and turned into jewellery, accessories and applique items. The specific items I have made so far are keyrings/key chains, earrings, charms, brooches and necklaces. The keyrings/key chains and charms can be put on keys, a bag, pencil case, bracelet or even a necklace. I used extra materials to create these, specifically, fish hook earrings, lobster claps, standard keyring/key chain clasps and brooch pins. The hearts have multiple uses to give as gifts to your Forever Love or special Valentine.


The finished sizes are:-

Small - 2.5cm (1˝) x 2.5cm (1˝)

Medium - 4cm (1.5˝) x 4cm (1.5˝)

Large - 7cm (2.75˝) x 7cm (2.75˝)


The sizes may differ depending on the yarn and hook you use. For the small red hearts I used a cotton DK yarn. For the small and medium pink hearts, I used a DK yarn and for the medium and large red hearts I used a chunky yarn. This was so I could create the different sizes, textures and effects. I don’t know the exact amount of yarn I used but each ball definitely makes more than 15 large hearts.


To create each heart, I used a combination of UK Half Treble Crochet/htr (US Half Double Crochet/hdc) and UK Treble Crochet/tr (US Double Crochet/dc). I used these with slip stitches and working in the round. I also used a magic (adjustable) ring to start my round.

I would give the Paintbox Yarns a 5 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was easy to work and worked up quickly;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it was extremely soft;

- The cost of yarn is very reasonable - I paid about £2.25 per 100g ball and you get a lot on a ball;

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY. You will see this yarn in a lot of my projects from now on.


I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration.
