Recently I shared some of my favourite tips for crochet - whether you’re a newbie or seasoned crochet pro! Here are five patterns I think would be great for exploring your crochet skills.
This bag is a quick and easy pattern and while the pattern is written for a cotton cord or macrame cord for durability, I think it would be pretty in any yarn of your choice for a reusable shopping bag!
These reusable face scrubbies are a beginner-friendly project that gives some immediate gratification! These would work up nicely in a cotton yarn like the Estelle Scrubs yarn and make a lovely sustainable alternative to cotton face pads.
I love how the puff stitches add beautiful detail to this sweater - it’s a stunning design but still perfect for every day! It’s worked in the round from the top and is completely seamless.
I love a beautiful handmade shaw and this pattern is stunning! I love how beautifully the lace pattern shows up in the rows. This is a beautiful way to use a gradient yarn.
This asymmetrical triangular shawl would be a lovely way to use mini skeins (an advent calendar, perhaps!) or a yarn with a long colour run, such as Scheepjes Whirl. The pattern is easily adapted to different sizes and instructions for modification are included in the pattern.
