Figuring out what to make next can be a daunting task. You search on Google or Youtube trying to find something that fits your level of expertise and it’s not what you’re looking for. Sometimes videos and posts that claim to be easy may not be the right fit for you at the moment. I have carefully put this list together with the beginners in mind.
This is by no means meant to deter anyone from taking on a challenge. I am merely throwing out some fun beginner-friendly suggestions that are fast, fun and easy.
This list is a mix of my own patterns/tutorials and other crafters. Because, let’s face it, there are so many amazing crocheters out there!
Let's get started with your next crochet project
1. Crochet a Scarf
Scarves are the ultimate easy crochet project. If you’ve got just one stitch that you mastered, you can make a scarf. Also, if you use a super chunky yarn, you can whip up a bunch in no time! (Hello Christmas gift idea) You know the saying, practice makes perfect, and doing multiple rows of the same stitch is the best way to perfect a stitch.

3. Make a Blanket
Blankets aren’t exactly always a fast crochet project, but they definitely are very easy if you have the right pattern.
I love making blankets… who needs to go to the store and buy one when you can make it yourself? Now, I will be honest here and say that whenever I embark on a blanket project, it is usually one of two or three other projects I’m working on. I like fast and easy projects and since blankets tend to take more time I like to multi-task. However, when you’re done with your blanket it is quite the accomplishment.
Here are a few patterns to try out:
Simple Crochet Blanket
Find the complete pattern in the link provided and give this project a try! As stated on the post, it is a one-stitch blanket which is perfect for beginners.
Want to try something a little different? How about finger-crochet? I tried this once with super bulky yarn and it was a ton of fun. This throw blanket pattern looks just as fun to make.

7. Headbands/Ear Warmers
Yet another fun and easy crochet project. Ear warmers are a great project for beginners. My only qualm with this project is that it is important to get the gauge correct and to keep in mind that these stretch when you put them on. I found that making is slightly smaller works well. You don’t want an ear warmer that doesn’t fit your head!
