Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Spud & Chloë Gang!

Heart Balloon Bundle

A bundle of crocheted heart balloons made in every color of Spud & Chloë Fine.

Valentine’s Day, or any day, can be special with these simple and delicate balloons! Crochet only the heart from the free Floating Heart pattern using just one strand of Spud & Chloë Fine and an E (3.5mm) hook, making sure to leave the starting end nice and long for the balloon’s “tail.” When finished, weave in the end at the top—and voilà!

Holiday Tradition 2012

You may recall that last year we had our curmudgeonly pal Spud on a holiday tag or ornament.

Our gal Chloë pulling Spud for sledding fun.

In the spirit of tradition, we bring you the 2012 holiday tag. Click here to download.

A multifaceted ornament.

Auntie Sarah took several tags to create this whimsical ornament. How will you use the 2012 holiday tag? I’m trying to come up with a project to combine both 2011 and 2012!

Happy holidays from the gang at Spud & Chloë!

7 Days and Counting

Are you ready? There are seven days left until Valentine’s Day.

If you are looking for a quick project to make just in time for a special loved one, be sure to remember Susan’s lovey-inspired free pattern: Heart on a String.

Don't forget, this hat is knit with Spud & Chloë Sweater yarn doubled. Super speedy.

Since Susan originally designed this piece, Spud & Chloë has added many colors to the collection.

What fun to create a handmade hat for your Valentine in their favorite colors. That way, regardless of the day, that special person will know they are loved.

Spud & Chloë Sweater, 55% superwash wool and 45% organic cotton, here are a few colorways we put together (left to right) Jelly Bean (7513) and Popsicle (7501) ultra pink and ultra girlie. Igloo (7517) and Barn (7818) traditional Valentine’s Day. Grape Jelly (7516) and Lilac (7523) feminine with a twist. Grass (7502) and Turtle (7514) perfect for everyone.

What colors will you put together to make February 14th special?
