8 Crochet Projects That Are Better Than Blankets

These clever ideas are so much quicker than a blanket!

Chunky Mittens

These chunky crochet mittens are so warm and perfect for those chilly winter days ahead of us! Wouldn’t these make for great gifts for the family or some special friends? I love the added touch of the button on the bottom! You could leave that off of course, or switch up the design and sew on three little buttons up the side instead of one big button. It’s all up to you! See how it’s done in this video!

Vintage Coin Purse

This darling little crochet coin purse is so perfect! I love the vintage vibe created by the brass clip and the bold cotton yarn. This project is actually really simple, and you only need to know one stitch: the single crochet! That’s right, this whole project is just single crocheting. Get the full tutorial here!
