|Frabjous Fibers Wave Action and Light Scarf Crochet Patterns|
Crochet patterns for hats might include warm hats for men, women, young children and babies. A variety of free projects include beanie hats, visor beanies, slouchy hats, and much more. These make wonderful, inexpensive gifts. Hats can range from newer and more modern styles to a more vintage look. There are styles to fit any need and taste. Instructions are very easy and fun, for example: the beanie hat just uses a single stitch with slip stitches. One beanie hat could be made in an evening. Projects for accessories to go with any style of hat can be done as a gift set.
Crochet patterns for scarves are even easier. Scarves can be made in any width or length. Make a scarf narrow and short for a child or wider and longer for an adult. Add beads and a variety of trinkets for children to enjoy wearing. There are so many manly colors and dainty colors in the stores these days that it is fun just picking out the yarn. Generally a scarf will take two skeins of yarn; depending on how big one wants it to be. Scarves also make great gifts at Christmas for the paper boy or girl, the mail man, your insurance agent, or place scarves at Christmas in a local food pantry for people to pick up with their food items. Sometimes one does not even need a pattern for a scarf. If they know how to single or double stitch they can make up their own design as they work the project.
Crochet patterns for shawls are a fun project and may take even more yarn, two to four skeins, depending on the thickness and size. Shawls are exciting to do during the summer and give to friends in the winter or any season. A lighter yarn is used for cool summer nights and a denser yarn for the winter season, offering the wearer warmth and coziness on chilly evenings.
