Supplies & Tools
Generally, if you have a crochet hook and yarn, you can crochet anything. But depending on what you’re making, you may need other materials. Here is what you will use for most Valentine’s Day Crochet Patterns in this roundup:
- Yarn – light worsted/DK (#3) and worsted weight (#4) yarns are the most common types for these patterns. And, unless it’s a wearable, such as a hat, you can usually adapt them to your favorite yarns.
- Crochet hooks – the size will depend on what you’re making, and the yarn used. But make sure you check the pattern for the recommended hook size.
- Stuffing Fiber – if you’re making Amigurumi animals or dolls, you will need fiber to stuff them. My favorite is Poly-fil stuffing fiber, it is of excellent quality and affordable.
- Safety eyes and noses – unless you’re making your stuffed animals and dolls for babies, these are essential for your Amigurumi supplies toolbox. I recommend embroidering eyes and other facial features if you’re making them for young children.
- Tapestry Needles – my favorite are these bent tips needles. They make life easier if when you’re working with tighter stitches.
- Scissors – it’s good to have a pair of sharp scissors in every corner of your home you sit to crochet.
- Other notions and supplies – embroidery threads, stitch markers, measuring tape, and stuffing tools.

Now that you know what materials you’ll be using for these Valentine’s Day Crochet Patterns, what about skills? Here is a list of the basic stitches and techniques you will need:

- Basic embroidery – Amigurumi patterns sometimes require some simple embroidery for their facial features.
