Valentine’s Crochet Pattern Round Up
In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, let’s look at Ashlee Brotzell’s interlocking & mosaic crochet designs with hearts, love, or romance as the theme!
Hearts, Love, & Romance
The designs I’m including in this round-up could be used for Valentine’s Day or a wedding or any other situation where hearts and love is appropriate!
Interlocking & Mosaic
I design patterns for two different colorwork techniques: interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet. Every design (with a few exceptions) comes with the fully written pattern and charts for both techniques.

Free or Paid
Whether free or paid, all designs are still protected by copyright.
Some of these are free PDF downloads, others are free to view on my website, or they have a free YouTube component.
Most of them also have a paid PDF option which is an excellent way to say thank you if you’ve enjoyed a pattern and are able to contribute.
Other ways to support a designer who offers free patterns are to invite others to visit the site where you can view the pattern (such as a link to YouTube or to my website).

Love or Romance
If you have a dinosaur-loving friend, then Dinosaur Stomp might be the most loving blanket you could make. But, this list of designs features patterns with love-y themes only.
Some of these designs also have hearts, but I’ve not duplicated any designs in the list. So, if it’s got hearts but is romantic you’ll find it in this Love or Romance section only.

This is one of my most popular designs! I based this design on the classic quilt design with the same name.
Choose your preferred colorwork technique (interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet) and then choose which direction you want to make (center-out or bottom-up). It’s repeatable so you also get to choose the final size!

These designs were created specifically for Valentine’s Day in 2022. There is a blanket and 2 large squares included in this set.
My Heart is Full of Love is a smaller throw blanket and Flying Hearts 40 plus Swirly Hearts 40 are pulled from the blanket to create matching squares.
Year of Cats “Love” blanket
These next four patterns can be combined to create a blanket that says “Love”. They are all part of my 2022: A Year of Cats series.
One of the bonus files in that eBook is an all-in-one love blanket pattern so that you can create this blanket WITHOUT joining squares (which is especially useful for the overlay mosaic crochet technique)!
My pink and black sample uses four interlocking crochet squares joined together.
Sample in photo crocheted by CrochetCarob.
This square features a fluffy cat (with hearts in the background) and can represent the “L” in “Love”!
Using this square, along with June Cat, September Cat, and December Cat, you can create a 4-square blanket that says “Love”!
This large square has a cat curled in the shape of an “O” along with hearts in the corner and at his paws.
Using this square, along with March Cat, September Cat, and December Cat, you can create a 4-square blanket that says “Love”!
Sample in photo crocheted by Maja Serec.
This large square has a cat (sitting in the shape of a “V”) with a few hearts in the background.
Using this square, along with March Cat, June Cat, and December Cat, you can create a 4-square blanket that says “Love”!
This cat square is for the the “e” in “Love” and also has a few small hearts floating around.
Using this square, along with March Cat, June Cat, and September Cat, you can create a 4-square blanket that says “Love”!
I have a lot of designs with hearts! Some feature hearts as the main event; others simply have a heart or two somewhere in the design. A lot of the small squares can also be found in my Hearts, Hearts, Hearts eBook.
If the overall theme is romantic I’ve put it in the love or romance category even if it has a heart in the design.

I have a full collection of designs in different sizes using this nested heart design. They are titled Many Hearts ## where the number at the end of the title tells you the size of the design.
This Repeatable Many Hearts pattern lets you decide the finished size!

You may love coffee so much that that’s reason enough to include it in this list, but I’ve included it because there are some heart details throughout this blanket.
This design comes with the right- and left- handed patterns for “children’s”, “daughter’s”, and “son’s” in both interlocking and mosaic crochet.
