The larksfoot stitch pattern has been popping up in all sorts of patterns lately, and that's no surprise. I mean, just look at it! Use bright, contrasting colors in a yarn that is a DK-weight or heavier to make the biggest splash. Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy to do. Grab some spare yarn and a hook and work up this small swatch. But be warned — it's addictive!

Can combining two classics give you something modern and fresh? When those classics are the crochet granny square and the log cabin quilt block, the answer is a resounding yes. It looks all fancy, but really, if you know how to crochet a granny square (or are willing to learn) and are comfortable with mid-row color changes, you can consider this puppy your next project.

You want to make a lickety split crochet project (try this super fast cowl!) ? Great. Perhaps you already know that you should choose a pattern made with bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. A small one-skein project would be really fast.
