I mentioned earlier this month that I had been doing a lot of new crochet after taking a short hiatus from the craft. I’ve already shown you some of the crochet dishcloths I’ve made as well as the crochet items I upcycled into flowers for my window containers. Here I’m rounding up some of the other items I’ve crocheted recently. Hope you enjoy!

Unique Yarn Crochet Skirt

Awhile back I got some vintage yarn that reminded me of hosiery yarn. I never knew what I’d do with it but suddenly I got inspired to crochet myself a skirt with it. The amount I had was too short for a skirt on its own so I decided to add some furry Patons Voodoo black yarn to lengthen it. I didn’t follow a pattern for the skirt but it’s made mostly of single, half double and double crochet stitches and was made using a K size crochet hook.

Two-Toned Textured Crochet Fringe Scarf

This one started out as a project I was doing just because I wanted to crochet meditatively working with a really nice yarn. I started out with the blue green yarn, which is a worsted weight yarn that’s mostly wool with a little nylon for stretch. I’m pretty sure I got it from Sincere Sheep. I created texture for the scarf by doing 2dc then 1sc across each row, always putting the dc in a dc and the sc in a sc stitch. When I ran out of the yarn I decided that the best way to finish the scarf would be to make it a two-tone asymmetrical scarf using a cream-white color. I continued the same stitch pattern. I don’t put fringe on a lot of my scarves but for some reason I felt it was right on just one end of this one. I’m loving it.

Bobble Crochet Headphone Holder

This is one of those quick projects that was born of an immediate need. I kept getting my keys tangled up in my headphones in my purse. I figured that if I put the headphones into a little crochet bag then it would not only solve the problem but also keep the headphones from getting damaged in there. I love bobbles so I figured I’d just do some bobbles to make a little textured bag. Nothing special but it’s functional!

Right now I am making three-inch diameter balls for the Littles I babysit for their holiday gifts. I use lovely merino wool and stuff them with cut up wool sweater scraps. Cute, simple, nearly mindless and yet, loved and appreciated by the kids and the moms.

I LOVE your work and I LOVE this post! I can't tell you how inspiring it is to read of another person who crochets more as a sort of contemplative meditation and less as an attempt at craft perfection. I do the same thing - sometimes I'll just grab a pretty skein of yarn from my stash drawer and just start working on popcorns to ease my anxiety and calm and quiet my mind. Magical stuff! Plus - you're work is gorgeous! The idea of a headphones holder is genius and you can bet I'll be ad hoc-ing my own as soon as I get home from work!
