8 Crochet Projects That Are Better Than Blankets

These clever ideas are so much quicker than a blanket!

Retro Wall Hanging

I love these kinds of projects! This wall hanging is a great stash buster. If your scrap yarn pile looks anything like mine, you could probably make 3 or 4 of these and still have some left over! This wall hanging is a super portable project – just take a skein of yarn with you and crochet multiple circles while you wait at the doctor’s office, a friend’s house, or on the bus. That’s a win-win for me! Get the free pattern here!

Washcloth Set

Who wouldn’t love a set of these gorgeous, hand-stitched washcloths? I know I do! These washcloths work up so quickly and easily, and the best part is, you only need to know two stitches. That’s right! If you know how to do a single crochet and a triple crochet, you’re good to go. So pop in your favorite movie (or queue up your favorite show on Netflix) and get to crocheting this gift set for everyone on your list! See how it’s done here!
