Did you for some reason or another just stopped crocheting? Maybe life just caught up with you and the hook just had to take a backseat. Or, maybe you’ve taken ill and just can’t physically take on any projects. Whatever reason it might have been, starting a crochet project might be a little scary for some – which is why starting off with quick crochet projects is the best way to go.
You’ll want to restart your crochet journey with something that won’t overwhelm and instead encourage you to create more.
These easy crochet projects are perfect for those who want to get reacquainted with crocheting but don’t want to be burdened with a huge or difficult crochet project. If you're just getting back to crocheting, I highly recommend checking out the Crochet Fundamentals class that will help you to gain your confidence back.
The Bixby Crochet Cowl
This free crochet cowl pattern made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick uses the herringbone double crochet stitch to create a deliciously chunky scarf with a modern look!

Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Boot Cuff
These boot cuffs are very quick to make, taking only an hour or two. They are the perfect accessory to go with a pair of jeans and your favorite boots.
Cotton Face Scrubbies
If you wash the scrubbies before using them, they’ll get super, super soft… be sure to make a bunch of crochet face scrubbies so you can use them every day or to give away to all your friends!
Via You Should Craft
What’s nice about these towel holders is that they are separate from the towels. You slip a towel through the elastic ring to easily remove a towel to wash or switch to a different one.
Quick and Thick Crochet Swiffer Sweeper Cover
It is a washable and reusable cover that will fit over Swiffer sweepers. Made with Bernat Blanket Yarn, this pattern can be made up easily in under an hour once you get the loop stitch down! You can wash this without worrying about shrinking, and the little loops do a nice job of catching hair and dust bunnies.

Add fringing or thread some colored feathers to make a feathery fringe, or maybe add some chunky beads… so many options!

Cotton yarn is best for this project – I like Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn. This quick and easy crochet project is perfect for your well-deserved spa day!
Wanderlust Crochet Scarf
Stay extra warm and cozy on any adventures you have with the Wanderlust scarf! There are some differences in the way this scarf is worked (rows), compared to a hat that is worked in the round.
Simple Crochet Basket Pattern
This basic crochet pattern is great for beginners learning how to crochet and is the basis for so many other types of crochet projects so it’s great to learn. The clothesline is a little tricky at first, but it creates a cool look and works up so quickly!

I love your patterns. They are easy to follow and they make up easy. I will usually make several and give some away as thank you gifts. I love your scarf in this bunch of patterns. I will make several of the patterns this month especially the scarf as I am going up North for a couple of weeks. Thanks again for your wonderful patterns.

The projects look simple and fun. I am a fairly new to crochet, but these look easy enough for a beginner.
PeggyOctober 25, 2022
I love your patterns and your web site. I just visited another site where everyone began with an “oh poor me, no one likes my crochet and they say I need to stop.” Your site is always uplifting and fun.
DeanaDecember 8, 2022
I have to agree with Nancy,
as a new crocheter some of these look easy enough I think I can do.. Love the towel holder, might figure out how to make it into a key chain as well.
