Susan Wrist warmers by Sunflower Cottage Crochet

If you have not grabbed the pdf for these yet then you really should!

You cannot see it in the photo but there is an option to add a beautiful cuff to the bottom of your wrist warmers and the pattern shows you how to make them fit any hand.

Mason Jar Cozy by Carroway Crochet

Jar cozies are so popular! I use them in my craft room where I have lots of jars containing quilting clips, blocking pins, D links etc. It makes the room feel much tidier and cozier!

 

 

 

Chunky Bowtie Head Warmer by Itchin’ for some Stitchin’

These head warmers are so cute. You could raid your scraps and make a ton of these for little easter gifts. My nieces would adore them.

Who would you make these for?

Crunch Stitch Scrubbies by Made by Gootie

Agat has some gorgeous scrubby designs. These are quick and super easy. The crunch stitch makes a great texture for scrubbies and washcloths!

Easy Beginners Hat by Off the Hook for You

This hat can be made in less than an hour!

The key to it’s speed – super chunky (or super bulky) yarn and 10mm hook!

So if you are looking for a quick gift idea or want some super quick projects for your donation box then this one should be considered.

Crochet Fingerless Gloves by My Crochet Space

Another great practical pattern idea that takes no time to work up. That velvet yarn looks so cosy!

My daughter is now a pre-teen and has her own phone so these would be perfect for the spring and autumn for her and her friends.

 

 

Owl Amigurumi by Loops and Love Crochet

I am a sucker for owls so this one is a must make!

It’s not just a stuffed decoration – I would make one to be a pin cushion, a paper weight or pop a zip in the top of the head for a coin purse for a little girl!

Coastal Waves Coaster by Pine Tree Crochet

Another sweet and simple design that is a great scrap buster!

That bright green is giving me all the happy spring feels this morning.

Buttercream Dishcloth by Crochets by Trista

I love Trista and her designs are always fantastic! I have actually made this pattern – it is beautiful and works well as a dishcloth or washcloth.

On a side note – those strawberries look so yummy!

Sunglasses Pouch by Valzies Boutique

Protect your glasses from getting scratched or lost with this pouch!

I’ll have to find some of that yarn – it’s gorgeous!
