Happy February!

It’s no secret ’round these parts how much I adore Valentine’s Day. It’s a weird thing—I guess about 10 or so years ago, I just decided to embrace the holiday and make it mine. I mean, sure, it’s overcommercialized and generally a disgusting thing that Hallmark has thrust upon us, but it’s also so cheesy and stupid and can be a lot of fun. I take it as a holiday to tell my friends and family how much I love them—and I usually do it with sugar.

This year, you can celebrate with a completely calorie-free heart to give to someone you love. The pattern I designed for Crochet Today is for a set of coasters, but there’s no reason one can’t simply be slipped in a card, or hung from a doorknob. Make two and sew them together with a little bit of stuffing to make a three-dimensional heart!


You have plenty of time before Feb 14 to make them if you start now! It’s in the Jan/Feb issue.

    It is now January of 2013 and I have just found these amazing heart coasters. However the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Crochet Today seems to be sold out everywhere I look. Any ideas on where I can get this pattern now?
