We all love simple, quick projects! Whether you are just learning to crochet or have been crocheting for fifty years, easy patterns are the perfect go-to projects for traveling, keeping your hands busy while chatting with friends, and gift giving.

In this fabulous free eBook, we have compiled five quick and simple patterns to grace your home, create a heartfelt gift, or accessorize a stylish ensemble.  

Worked in a simple spiral of single crochet, the Country Rug by Susan Huxley combines four colors of soft, bulky alpaca to create a randomly patterned rug inspired by folk art. This straightforward pattern includes information of working the rug as small or as large as you would like. Make a little rug for a quaint bathroom or an eye-catching work of art for a cozy living room.

The Hook & Weave Shrug by Jennifer Orr is a warm one-size-fits-all shrug worked in luscious alpaca. Perfect for a beginning crocheter, this simple pattern introduces single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. A contrasting yarn is woven through the stitches to add interest to this easy shrug.

Add some sparkle to your crochet with the Yellow Leaf Bracelet by Amy Clarke Moore. Dainty leaf beads are pre-strung and worked in a simple beaded single crochet. This trendy accessory is a fun gift for all ages and a great introduction to thread crochet.

Motif squares create a hip accessory in the Linen Belt by Mary Jane Mucklestone. The linen yarn, held double, and lacy motifs create a pleasing contrast for this simple fashion accessory. Add your own buckle to reflect your own style.

The Organic Cotton Washcloth for Babies by Kim Werker makes a lovely gift, wrapped up with a bar of all-natural soap. The organic cotton yarn and easy stitch pattern creates a durable, textured washcloth ideal for babies. You will love this quick project so much, you may just have to make a couple for yourself.

Well, I was in the middle of a comment, and it disappeared.....  there may be half a comment out there somewhere in nether land!

Anyway, I am making the round rug, using handspun, single ply super wash wool.  My concern is that the edges curl as I crochet them, but seem to flatten the more rows I do.   Anyone know what might be causing this?  I don't mind ripping things out, but don't want to get to the end to do it!  

Could the yarn have too much twist?  I'm crocheting fairly right like the pattern says, but perhaps that doesn't pertain to wool, only alpaca....  

Any thoughts?  I'd appreciate it!

thanks.

Hi lilybit232!

You may be crocheting  a bit too tight. Try going up a hook size.

If you are using washable wool, it won't felt or full when you're done. It will stay the same size.

Hope that helps!

Best,

Marcy
