Valentine's Day is for recognizing the ones you love, and what better way to do so than through the craft you adore? Cast on and stitch these knits for your favorite people in honor of all those warm and fuzzy feelings.

1. Fingerless Heart Gloves

Follow a simple mitts pattern, then embellish your new hand-warmers with crochet or embroidery. Hearts and flowers are obviously fitting for V-Day, yet still look cute enough to wear year-round.

This just in: you no longer have to wear your heart on your sleeve. In fact, we recommend carrying it around in your hands. These simple knit mitts get a bit of Valentine's Day love with super-cute stitched embellishments.

2. Heart-Shaped Dishcloth

Go on and literally stitch your heart out creating a gift that can be used every Valentine's Day for years to come. This pattern uses cotton worsted weight yarn , so it won't shrink or stretch when washed.

Knit your heart out — literally. This heart pattern is the perfect make for Valentine's Day, whether you stitch it on its own and use it as a dishcloth, or incorporate it into a larger project.

3. Cute Mug Cozy

Grab your DPNs or use the magic loop technique to knit a mug cozy for the coffee-lover in your life. As long as you follow the basic pattern, you can customize it any way you wish with colorwork and edging.

Mug cozies are a must-have for coffee lovers, and make great Valentine's Day gifts when embellished with a little knit heart. Work in the magic loop and you'll have a cute coat for your favorite cup in no time.

If you can knit and purl, you can make this scarf. The woven fringe is worked in after you're done knitting, so no special tools are required.
