15 Quick Crochet Projects that Will Inspire You to Crochet Again

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.

Towel Holder

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
