Fun Yarn Projects You Can Make
I do not make much with yarn except for a mess so I really love seeing the beautiful yarn crafts others make. I've tried both knitting and crocheting, without much luck. But I think as my kids get older and I have more time to focus, I'll try again. Right now, my daughter is trying to teach herself how to crochet… so maybe a mother-daughter adventure is ahead!
Check out all these fabulous ideas you can make with your newly found love of yarn. I've gathered a collection of projects designed by all kinds of creative people… I hope you enjoy them!
This gorgeous knitting loom neck warmer was creating using a knitting loom. The fabulous thing about knitting looms is you don't necessarily have to know how to knit with needles, the loom helps take on that burden so you can enjoy the process to make lovely knit things. This full tutorial is available over at Tried and True. I haven't tried a knitting loom yet, but I'm pretty sure my fear of the yarn crafts will greatly improve once I do.
Make yourself or your someone cute and special this adorable Wildflower Crocheted Hat. The flower and the hat are created separately, so you can mix and match yarns however you'd like.
