Show your Valentine's spirit

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Recently customers have been asking for Valentine inspired knits. Honestly - we don't have a lot! It's just one day of the year, and there aren't a whole lot of patterns that are dedicated to just one day...

However, we feel you can take any hand knit item and jazz it up for Valentine's Day. Take this hat for example:
It's a quick bulky beanie pattern with two little hearts stitched on the side. We used Malabrigo Chunky in Vermillion and a small amount of Plymouth Angora in white for the hearts. This hat will keep you warm and spread some love and cheer at the same time. Once Valentine's Day has come and gone, you can easily remove the hearts... if you want!

So think outside of the box when you are searching for something special to knit. Sometimes a search for "Valentine's patterns" will yield nothing... you just have to search within yourself to see what you can come up with!
