Crochet Tropical Coasters

Whip up a set of these pretty tropical flower coasters next time you need a quick hostess gift. These make much-appreciated gifts and are great for protecting tabletops from summertime beverages.

Misty Morn Scarf

  Sometimes you just gotta make a scarf! No matter that it’s 94 degrees outside. Ever since  I did the post on the V’s and Blocks stitch pattern, I knew I wanted to make a scarf with it. This one will show up again come Christmas time, for sure. I love the subtle color changes of the Misty Morn colorway in Knitpicks Chroma Worsted, but any yarn with appropriate hook size will work beautifully for this scarf.

Tropical Sun Hat

  Protect your face from the sun’s rays with this festive sun hat. Made with tropical colors, it’s great to wear whether vacationing in an exotic locale, or gardening in your own back yard. As pretty as it is in these vivid colors, think how wonderful it would look in cream with a pastel rose and leaves.

Crochet V-Stitch Laptop Sleeve

  Protect your laptop with a pretty lace stitch sleeve that works up quick as a wink! Adorn with a pop-art flower for a cute accessory that’s sure to get compliments wherever you go.

One-Hour Crochet Slippers

  Whip up a sweet pair of slippers in just about an hour with this easy pattern. They’re wonderful little gifts and are perfect for getting a jump on making stocking stuffers. They pack flat so are great for travel and mailing. These slippers would also be perfect to make for the Pink Slipper Project, which provides donated slippers for women and children living in shelters.

Crochet Bluebird of Happiness

  Crochet this charming little bluebird to hang in a window and he’ll bring you a smile every day!

Dad’s Crochet Grilling Mitt

  With Father’s Day just around the corner on June 15, you still have time to make dear old Dad a crocheted gift he’ll really use! Wish Dad a happy Father’s Day with one or a pair of these sturdy, thick grilling mitts. Made with a double strand of 100% cotton worsted-weight yarn, they offer hand protection enough for the hottest grilling adventures! Dad will love using these and will love knowing you made them for him.

Calypso Crochet Shawlette

  Beautiful blue green waves accented with a delicate shell stitch border form this seafaring shawlette. It’s perfect for knocking the chill off evenings on a cruise, at home or about town. Easy enough to make even for beginners, this shawl is also a fun project for more experienced crocheters. The one-row repeat makes it easy to memorize so you can work on this project on the go.

Crossed Stitch Crochet Dishcloth

Do your washing up in style with these pretty crossed stitch crochet dishcloths. They’re made with 100% cotton yarn for softness and washability. Great for gifts!

Memorial Day Crochet Star Garland

  Red, white and blue stars adorn your mantel with this patriotic star garland. Each star is 4 1/2″ across, and strung together they make a garland just right for the average mantel. Individual stars make great coasters for patriotic holidays too.
