Crochet Ponchos, Shawls, Skirts
When you consider it, shawls and ponchos are just like blankets you can wear, so they are as simple to make and fun as any Afghan. They are also available in different styles and shapes, from stylish to casual.
If you think about it, the skirt is almost the same. Often they are just blankets combined with a small cut and a small shape. There are some good skirt designs to explore. But be prepared, because everyone will comment on your beautiful knitted skirt. If you’re an introvert, you may not want to stand out.
Whether you choose a scarf, a comfortable poncho, or a beautiful skirt, you’ll be happy to draw and wear any of these designs.
Warm and Fuzzy Crochet Socks
Everybody likes comfortable handmade socks. Although knitting is often preferred, you can also make great crochet socks.
The key to sock success is its design, and that’s what makes many of us who crochet give up. But with the right sock design and special care with the stitches, everyone can learn how to make them.
If socks look too big for you, think about the simplest option. House slippers can be equally comfortable, but they often don’t have the same shape as ankle socks. They are also very beautiful and less time-consuming. And fun, fun, fun to wear!

Crochet Dream Catcher
Add some color to your home with this all free crochet pattern that hangs on the wall. Choose a large branch of wood, a piece of dry wood, or a pin to hang your work.
