Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day approaches, so I teamed up with JOANN Fabric & Crafts to encourage showing a little of that love to crochet. On the most recent Facebook Live video (airing today at 2pm ET) on their Page, I give a tutorial on crocheting bobble hearts as part of a quick-cowl to make and give!
