small crochet

We’ve just started a new theme on my other blog, Crochet Along. The new theme is Small Crochet – basically anything goes, as long as it’s small(ish). I’ve given 6″ or less as a guide for size, but it’s not a strict rule. We’re going for small stuff as instant gratification – it’ll be refreshing after making countless granny squares for the last theme!

Here are some examples of small crocheted items you could make:

  • Amigurumi
  • Small wearables: headbands, wrist warmers, etc
  • Coffee mug cosies / iPod cosies, etc
  • Baby booties
  • Flowers & embellishments
  • Small thread or wire crocheted items
  • Anything else that’s small and crocheted!

We have free pattern links and advice to share. If you’ve considered trying crochet for the first time, this would be the perfect opportunity! If you’d like to join in, head over to the Crochet Along blog or drop me an e-mail and I’ll sign you up.

    what a great idea. I don’t know who to crochet, instructions on doing a small project like this is encouraging me to learn how to do it.
