The thing I love most about crochet is the endless possibilities for projects. You aren’t restricted to making wearable items, craft items, household items, tote bags or purses. You can do it all.
Above, in the wearable item category, is an easy cowl I designed to use as a beginning crochet project for a class I plan to teach. It uses only single crochet, double crochet, and chains. You can see the technical details on my Ravelry project page.
Recently I’ve been doing some smaller projects that are less time consuming and more varied in purpose.
Above are some catnip fish toys for my cats. The pattern is free, courtesy of the Amigurumi Friends Blog
In the household item category, a square that will be part of a group project to make a comfort blanket. The pattern, called circled granny square, was designed by Meg Prescott and is available free if you are a member of Ravelry. Another great reason to join Ravelry, no charge.
In the purse category, a coin purse, my favorite, done in tapestry crochet. Ok, so I made this awhile ago but I keep it in my purse to hold my change. Here’s the link to my Ravelry project page on it.
Back to the wearable category, a broomstick lace scarf that I just finished. The pattern, Emerald Isle Scarf by Jennifer Fayard is available for free if you are a member of Ravelry. For technical details see my Ravelry project page.
I hope these projects may give you some inspiration for new projects of your own.
