Psst! Have you tried crochet? Some are hesitant to pick up the crochet hooks. Because all they’ve seen are overly sweet looking baby blankets and baby booties. Surely there must be more to crafting than that.
Well we can only agree with you. That’s why we’ve found you 36 creative crochet projects to try. But don’t be surprised: modern crocheting offers you a real unique take on what used to be a very old fashioned crafting hobby.
You can make clothing, jewelry, accessories and soft blankets, to name some of the projects. If you like to follow contemporary fashion styles, you’ll be pleased to know that you can crochet modern looks to suit you in every season. That’s right: crochet can work in spring, summer, fall and winter. It simply depends on what you make. A crochet bikini or halter top is perfect for warmer weather temperatures.
