Crocheted Flowers for Valentine’s Day 2020 Find Amazing Crochet Patterns for a Whole Bunch of Valentine-Friendly Flower Motifs

Crochet Flower With Ribbon

This pretty flower applique is useful at any time of year, but it’s especially appropriate for Valentine’s Day. You could pin it to a hat or lapel, or use it to embellish a Valentine gift you’re giving to a friend or loved one.

I’ve crocheted my sample flower in shades of pink and purple, but it would be even prettier in red and white, or pink and white. Or perhaps you could even use red, pink and white all together in this flower, assuming you can find the right combination of button, ribbon and yarn. Any of these options would be ideal color schemes for crocheting Valentine’s Day themed flowers.

Crochet Kaleidoscope is one of my favorite crochet pattern books. It features patterns for gorgeous crochet motifs including flowers, squares, circles and many others that you can crochet in any color palette you choose — including Valentine colorways and many others. The book also includes patterns for making inspiring finished projects in addition to the motifs. There is also helpful color theory information, which makes this book a truly unique and useful reference for crochet enthusiasts.

Valentine Gift Ideas for 2020

As a child, I adored Valentine’s Day. It delighted me to make paper Valentines for all the other children I knew.

As an adult, I haven’t outgrown my fondness for making Valentines. Nowadays I enjoy adding crocheted edgings to some of them, and putting other artistic touches on them as well. I find it satisfying to make lovely things to give to others, even small things like Valentine’s Day cards.

I’ve discovered that it’s even more fun to make Valentine gifts for my loved ones — or at least, to add handmade touches to my gifts at times when it isn’t practical to create an entire gift from scratch.

If you celebrate this holiday, and you plan on giving Valentine gifts this year, here are some ideas for things you can make:

Enclose Your Valentine’s Day Gift in a Heart-Shaped Pouch

Valentine Crochet Heart Pouch

Let’s say you want to give candy or some small item as a Valentine gift to a sweetheart, friend, or colleague. A heart-shaped pouch would be a fun way to package it.


This is one of those designs where you can really showcase your own creativity. There are many different ways you could decorate this pouch — so feel free to dress it up with appliques, beads, ribbons, buttons or whatever other pretty baubles your heart desires.


If your intended recipient is a guy and the heart idea isn’t quite right for this occasion, you could always choose another pouch design instead. Our list of pouch patterns has several guy-friendly options to consider.

Crocheted Hats for Him

Men's Slip Stitch Hat and Scarf Set

If your intended gift recipient is a guy, perhaps a crocheted hat would be a nice gift for him. The one pictured here is part of a hat and scarf set that I think is particularly nice for guys. It’s a bit of a time-consuming project, so I wouldn’t recommend it as a gift for casual acquaintances – but for the right guy, I think it’s worth spending the time on it. I can say that, having made the set for my own husband (although not specifically as a Valentine’s gift…) and he got significant, daily wintertime wear out of the hat for years before it got too shabby to make any more public appearances. Which reminds me that perhaps it’s time for me to begin making him another one…

Crocheted Jewelry for Her

If your intended gift recipient is a gal, jewelry might be a nice gift for her.

Valentine Flowers

There are all kinds of interesting things you can do with pretty crocheted flowers. You can attach them to hair accessories like headbands and hair clips. You can transform them into brooches or magnets. You can use them as embellishments on gift packages. Et-cetera!

A Festive Flower Motif to Crochet for Christmas or Any Time — Red Wool Crocheted Flower With Ribbon Bow – Click this Photo to See the Free Crochet Pattern for this Crocheted Flower

I’ve crocheted this flower what seems like zillions of different times now, and each time I’ve enjoyed finding different ways to embellish it. One of my favorite ideas so far is this simple and pretty ribbon bow, which I attached to the front of the flower with sewing thread and a few discreet stitches.

I crocheted this flower in red wool yarn; I’m thinking a red wool flower makes a nice embellishment for a lot of different projects, and would have multiple uses during the upcoming holidays. When December rolls around, it could be used for Christmas items, and then when February comes it could also double as a Valentine accent too.

Delightful Sunny Sunflower Patterns to Crochet

Easy Crochet Sunflowers

I don’t think, technically, that sunflowers are spring flowers. As far as I know, in most places they bloom either in late summer or early fall. But that hardly matters to me, since looking at them puts me in a sunny, spring-y mood anyway. Their sunny yellow petals radiate warmth and beauty, and they’re lovely to look at any time of year.

While I haven’t seen any real sunflowers blooming in my neighborhood lately, I’m glad I can enjoy the crocheted version all year around.

Want to make some sunny sunflowers for “planting” in your own environment, or embellishing your craft projects?

If so, please help yourself to any of our free crochet sunflower patterns.

Flower granny square patterns are numerous, but your choices are a little more limited if you want to crochet a flower hexagon. Nevertheless, there are some fantastic free hexagon patterns and tutorials available on the Internet.

Pictured here is one of my favorite hexagons. It’s a colorful 9-round hexagon with an open, lacy feel. I think it would be lovely to use for crocheting blankets or bedspreads.
