Valentine’s Day Granny Squares

As we approach St. Valentine’s Day, I thought of adding a few cute squares for the most romantic day of the year. Here are my Valentine’s Day Granny Squares with 20 square and applique patterns for celebrating love!

Valentine's Day Granny Squares - Raffamusa Designs

As with the previous granny square collections (see the Halloween granny squares, or the Christmas, Spring Farm, and Summertime ones…), the Valentine’s Day Granny Squares use the same Simple Circle Granny Square pattern as a base to create all the different designs.

You can check the free pattern and step-by-step tutorial on how to crochet the Simple Circle Granny Square on the blog HERE, or watch the video tutorial on YouTube HERE.

Durable Comfy Yarn

I had been thinking about crocheting these squares for a while but didn’t have all the colors I needed and was not sure which one to get…

Until a lovely lady from Durable Yarn contacted me on Instagram asking if I’d be interested in trying their new Durable Comfy, and I knew this yarn would work wonderfully for my Valentine’s Day granny squares!

Durable Comfy Yarn

I got to try many different colors but for my Valentine’s squares, I decided to keep it mostly to pink, red, white, and lilac. All the other colors were useful for creating details and giving the squares a more lively look!

You can see all the colors I used in the yarn section further below.

*The yardages given here are for making 24 granny squares, which I used for making the 2 panels of a pillow (each panel has 3 by 4 squares). Make sure to estimate how many squares you’ll need for the project you want to make so that you can calculate how much yarn to buy.


Each square measures 5.1″ (13 cm) when crocheted with the indicated yarn and hook.

For a more detailed table of the size of the Simple Circle Granny Square made with different yarn weights and hook sizes, you can take a look HERE.


The first 3 rounds of a Simple Circle Granny Square should measure 2″ (5 cm).
