Craft For The Soul Crochet handmade Pip-Life

15 cute, colourful things I can teach you to crochet

There are lots of crochet how-tos tucked away on this here blog. I thought I would gather a few into a post, in case you feel like getting out the hook and making something woolly!

They’re pretty simple to work up too. You just need to know a few basic stitches and then follow along.

I think simple is best – that it’s colour choice and positioning that really make a project sing.

    So many lovely things. I taught myself to make granny squares with your online tutorial several years ago and for a while as soon as I heard someone was pregnant I would whip up a blanket. But I’ve never managed to master anything but granny squares and I lost a bit of interest. You’ve inspired me to give it another crack!
