Aloha Wrap

Doesn’t this shrug look so comfy and cozy? I just love how it looks, and I really love how easy this pattern is! You only need to know 2 stitches – the slip stitch and the double crochet. That’s it! This pattern is seriously so easy, and the end result is amazing. Get the tutorial here!

Autumn Dishcloth

Crochet along with Jayda as she shows us a super simple and gorgeous pattern! This dishcloth uses the easy scallop stitch – which is comprised of a cluster of 5 double crochets, skipping 2 stitches, and a single crochet. By switching colors every row you get a really neat “fall leaf” pattern! Get the full pattern here!

Our friends at The Crochet Crowd have another great tutorial, this time it’s all about the Simple Crochet Shawl. This project really lives up to its name! I just love these kinds of projects with repeating patterns. It’s enough contrast to make the end product interesting and textured, but it’s not so complicated that I can’t watch my favorite show or chat with a friend while working. Really, isn’t that the ultimate goal? Get the full tutorial here!
