This Valentine’s Day ask the yarn crafter in your life, Wool You Be Mine?
Do you have a yarn lover in your life? If so, I have the perfect Wool You Be Mine Valentine for them. Clearly, I am a yarn lover. But I also have a group of knitting friends that I hope to share these with as well.
There is a good chance you’ll have most of the supplies for this valentine already on hand.
Start by creating the yarn ball. I used cardboard for the base circle. A sturdier item is easier to wrap the yarn around. I also cut a small notch in my cardboard circle to help get me started. I used a dab of craft glue for the tail of the yarn, and then I wrapped the yarn around the circle in a pattern to mimic an actual yarn ball. Keep wrapping until the circle is covered, trying to keep the back as flat as possible.
Once my flat(ish) yarn ball was finished I could focus on my yarn tools, knitting needles and a crochet hook. The knitting needles are quickly made from 2 toothpicks. All you need is a pair of sharp scissors to cut off one of the ends. I also use the scissors to create little groves at the end of the toothpicks to mimic actual wooden knitting needles.
I formed the crochet hook from a paper clip. I unfolded the paper clip, using the smaller end to act as the crochet hook. Then I crumpled up other end to hide in the ball of yarn. I used a dab of craft glue to secure them in the yarn balls.
Add the ‘wool you be mine?’ text and your Valentine’s are ready for your favorite yarn lover.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all the knitters and crocheters!
