Granny Squares

Granny Squares Perhaps the most obvious of the crochet projects for beginners are the humble granny squares. There is a huge range of granny squares just waiting to be made, and you can choose patterns that are as easy or as complex as you’d like. Even the easy ones look beautiful, and once you’re done, there are so many things you can do with them, like making them into a blanket or using them as pot scrubbers.



Scarves Scarves are a great thing to crochet because you can wear them when you’re done! I’m working on a cozy, chunky scarf at the moment, just perfect for the upcoming Australian winter. There is a vast amount of scarf crocheting patterns available, all of which are relatively easy and super adorable. Crocheted scarves also make the perfect present for the ones you love.



Rugs It might sound like quite a task, but in reality, crocheting a rug really doesn’t have to take up too much of your time. There are rug patterns out there that are quick and simple and look oh-so-striking wherever you decide to put them! Experiment with different colours and stitches to crochet something that will really stand out.



Coasters The possibilities are endless when it comes to making coasters. I’ve even seen a pack of coaster patterns all in the shape and colours of different types of fruit! There are some really quirky ones out there, and most of them are perfect for beginners. I love the coasters I’ve crocheted, and am really impressed by some I’ve seen others do! Let your imagination run wild.



Blankets Blankets can be as simple as repeating the same stitch over and over, or they can incorporate all kinds of different stitches and knots. It’s easy to start with simple ones and work your way up, the more confident you get with your abilities. Do you know someone in your life that has recently had a baby? Maybe a baby blanket is the perfect first project for you!


Face Scrubbers

Face Scrubbers If you’ve never exfoliated with a crocheted face scrubber, I suggest you do! They are gentle on your skin and work wonders with whatever facial products you decide to use. These are a really quick, easy project to embark on, and you could get several done in a day.



Bunting Crocheted bunting is the absolute perfect way to jazz up any house! Whether you make classic bunting with triangles, or go really sweet and make love heart or star bunting, it’s a quick project which will make you look like a pro. Not to mention you can string it up and show it off to everyone that you see!

Crocheting is a really fun hobby to have, and once you start, you’ll find yourself addicted! Places like Pinterest and Craftsy are perfect places to find crochet projects of all sorts, just waiting for you to put your stamp on them. Do you crochet? What was your first project?
