I do love a romantic and lacy crochet accessory to wear on Valentine’s day. This seems perfect for a date, or simply to wear that day. It is a cute, yet subtle accessory, so perfect in every way.
Crochet Be My Valentine Hairband: the inspiration
Valentine’s day is fast upon us, and I really wanted to create a crochet project perfect for this day. I had had the idea of a romantic headband a while back, and decided to create this accessory for Valentine’s day.
Also, I do love Valentine’s day, and the idea of celebrating love on a specific date. I think we can celebrate any type of love that day, be it romantic or not. Which is why this project is so perfect: it can be worn for any Valentine’s day occasion. I know I will wear this headband that day, and it will make me happy.
How will you be celebrating Valentine’s day this year?

This is a very easy crochet project to make. Indeed, you will need only a bit of yarn to begin with. The headband part if very easy and straightforward, and can be made very quickly.
The heart is also a very simple and quick crochet pattern to make. It creates a really dainty and feminine addition to this simple hairband. Let me know how you get on crocheting this project. I would also love to know if you made it for yourself, or as a gift.
