Crochet a 10 Minute Valentine


I crocheted a bunch of these last year for easy and quick Valentines for friends and family.  Some of you may recognize them...a dear reader asked if I could make an instructional video (below) to make the project step by step...consider it done!

I consider this a ten minute Valentine, but some of you are absolute wizards with yarn and may complete it even more quickly!
