Valentine's Day is coming up and if the one you love is into crochet or looking to learn how to crochet, then you've come to the right place. We have a ton of great crochet gift ideas for the crocheter you love this Valentine's Day. This year we're focused on finding all things lovely, fun, heart shaped and red for crocheters.
From Rowan to Red Heart and Lion Brand there are some amazing balls of yarn out there. The Lion Brand and Red Heart are less expensive, but the Rowan is of excellent quality. Yarn, especially from someone unfamiliar with crocheting is a very thoughtful gift for a crocheter. How much to get? Three to four balls for a scarf, two to three for a hat and a whole set of 10 balls for a larger project. Pair a small quantity of yarn with a nice book of crochet patterns (check out our crochet book recommendations here). Red, being the color of Valentine's Day of course is a great choice for the day.
Nothing says I love a crafter like a small portable heart-shaped measuring tape. It's useful and thoughtful and every time your crocheter does use it they will think of you.
