Sweets For Valentines

Happy Tuesday, friends!
I know that I do a lot of patterns for holidays but that’s because they’re fun and not due to the fact that I’m super into holidays. I don’t usually do much for Valentine’s Day but I do love to decorate for it, especially with crochet goodies. What about you?
This year I’ve designed a fun little ami for Valentine’s. It’s both cute and very quick to make (I think I accomplished in about one evening). I had the idea for this design for a couple weeks now and when I finally got to sit down and make it, it was so much fun making it. I even got a little wild with the decorating (like I probably would when I make real cupcakes). I added some sprinkles in yarn (if you have puffy paint, feel free to use that), and some surface crochet to really make it look like the icing was overflowing. Fun fact about me, I usually don’t like icing. It’s too sweet for me. I mean, sure, I have a serious sweet tooth but there’s a fine line. I’m here for flavors over super-sweet anyway (bring on some super dark chocolate!). So, just in case you’re ever interested in sending me baked goods, know that I’m not a huge fan of icing (unless it’s homemade buttercream then I’m all over it). 😀 This is what I meant about getting to ridiculous in these posts, you don’t need to know my icing preferences, right? Sometimes I get too into typing and let the Surrealist in me take over, just free flow the words and it takes me to some weird icing places. It can really betray my inner workings. Or not, because I’m just talking about cupcakes still. *shrugs* 😀
Anyway, I’m even going to make these with some thread like I did my Squishy Tree Ami (it’s in the notes if you’re interested) so I can have some really cute earrings for Valentine’s too. When I do make the earrings, I’ll update this post here with some info on how I made them if you’re interested (let me know in the comments if you would be interested in that sort of thing).
I just really hope you liked this little design. I had fun making it. 😀


So, you may have noticed the Blog Hop banner at the top of this post – I organized a fun Blog Hop with a bunch of designer friends for Valentine’s Day. Today’s pattern is the first in the hop and as my friends post their patterns, I’m going update my post here to include the links to their blogs. For now, here are the links to all the blogs (I’ll change them to the patterns on the dates below).

  • You’ll need to know how to do surface crochet for this pattern.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
