Find the Perfect Quick Valentine's Day Crochet Gift

Valentine's Day is only a week away. That leaves just enough time to whip up a quick crochet gift for a special someone in your life. There's nothing like a handmade gift to communicate how important someone is to you. To give you a little bit of a head start, I have compiled a short collection of some of my favorite crochet gifts, all of them perfect for Valentine's Day. 

Crochet Legwarmers   A gorgeous accessory for a cute skirt or a pair of skinny jeans, the Lacy Leg Warmers by Brenda K. B. Anderson are a fun surprise for a fashionable friend or teen. The simple sideways construction is easy to memorize and modify. Work fewer stitches for shorter leg warmers or few rows for a narrower circumference measurement. I need a pair of this eye-catching accessory for myself. 
Crochet Cowl   A truly simple but elegant piece, the Eddie Cowl by Anne Lecrivain uses just one skein of fingering-weight yarn. The circle of lacy fabric is created by working mirrored rows of shell stitches into your beginning chain. This is the perfect single-skein project. You can whip up several of them this week for the perfect crochet gifts. 
Crochet Mittens   Send a little love to keep hands and hearts warm with the Raspberry Mitts by Sarah Cleary. Single crochet stitches and crochet ribbing create a warm fabric while the ingenious flaps allow you to use your fingers for delicate tasks such as searching for your keys. The blank canvas of these mittens begs for embellishment. Try adding a few embroidery stitches or a crocheted flower for a personalized gift. 
Crochet Handbag   The Twist Bag by Brenda K. B. Anderson is the perfect handbag for a romantic night on the town. A crocheted lining in a contrasting yarn creates a fun pop of color and a great dense fabric. I love the clever twist of fabric that gives this bag its name. Add your own favorite purse frame for a bag that is uniquely you. Oops, did I say you? I meant perfect for the gift recipient. Then make one for yourself.
