Free last minute crochet patterns
Being a crocheter is an excellent skill to have when pressed for time thanks to the ease and speed of the hook. These cute ideas are perfect for last minute Christmas gifts this year!
Using a single simple granny square, you can easily dress up a gift card or cash for that hard to shop for person in your life. Get the pattern here.
With instructions on how to get a fitted calf for most sizes, these chunky socks work up in an evening in front of the TV. Use an aran weight yarn like Rowan Pure Wool Aran for durability and warmth. Get the pattern on their blog here.
This is a super simple and whip fast last minute project - we love the idea of using a chunky weight yarn like Cascade 128 Superwash for this project because it can be easily machine washed and tumble dried if it gets coffee or tea on it. Pair it with a Starbucks gift card (there's even a handy pocket on the side of this cozy!) for a lovely, personalized gift. Get the pattern here.
With sizes for kids and adults, this quick crochet project is an obvious choice. It's crocheted with an aran weight yarn: we love Debbie Bliss Falkland Aran, a new luxury yarn that's beautifully soft. Get the free pattern from the Cre8tion Crochet blog here.
