While working on my major cardigan project, I need something small to take along with me, for my favourite crafting on the go. So I started crocheting up the small cute projects I have had pinned forever, and it had been so much fun. I have even ordered more thread and hooks to explore this area further – I only now remembered how I used to enjoy the feeling of a fine cotton thread and a heavy(ish) fine hook in my hands. So here is a small overview of what I have come up with so far, with the links to the patterns (I have found all of these on-line):
These are super cute, and quite easy to make – if you can decode t
he English version of the pattern, which is a bit cryptic sometimes, I guess because of the quality of translation. I think, for a paid pattern, they could have tried a bit harder…
Probably, my least favourite so far, it came out a bit too large for my taste, and also the pineapple bit won’t lay flat. Maybe, a finer thread and a different hook size next time? Free pattern available.
Very cute. I might do more sea-themed elements. You can find the pattern here.
… that actually more look like leaves. I had leads of fun making them, really contemplating now making a dream catcher with a few of these. Lovely video in Spanish with English subtitles available .
I love to turn to small instant gratification projects – especially when working on large and complex projects. They give me the morale boost when I am feeling tired and fed up.
