I love knitting for the holidays. It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is almost here and January is over. I went on a search for free Valentine Knitting Patterns and found all sorts of cute ones that I wanted to share. The Valentine Pattern pictured at the right is from KnitOnePearlToo at BlogSpot.
Patterns with Hearts
Felted Mini Hearts – These little hearts would make great decorations for a Valentine’s Day party or place them in a heart-shaped candy dish. Use just a skein of yarn to make 15 Heartfelt Mini Hearts. This free knitting pattern is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Make 15 hearts from one skein of medium weight, worsted yarn.
I love dishcloth patterns and you could make this one in all colors. I made a dishcloth for my mom a while back and she used it as a table scarf and put a vase on it-lol. Make this dishcloth in red and you could use it as a Valentine’s Day decoration too. It’s from a blog called Knit a Little More. Cute title! Here’s another heart dishcloth pattern from KnitaLittleStore.
Know someone who is having a Valentine baby? Here’s a sweet baby blanket with a heart. It’s a great idea even if the baby isn’t born in February.
How about a Valentine pillow knitting pattern? I love this one, entitled Loopy Heart Pillow.
