  • This easy (and quick!) crochet infinity scarf is the perfect for those times when you need to make something and you need it done now (come on, I know I'm not the only procrastinating crafter out there). What makes this project so quick? Crochet is almost always fastest when you work the same stitch across a row and the same stitch for many rows. That's exactly what this cowl brings to the table: the first half of the scarf is worked in half double crochet and the rest is double crochet. Simple. Fast. Perfect.

  • Crochet that looks like knitting? Yes, it's possible! Master the Tunisian knit and purl stitches as you work your third and final project: a ribbed beanie. No knitting needles required! Afterwards, see how to add a fun pom-pom to finish it off.
  • Sure, the colors of fall look great in all that foliage! But we'd say the warm hues are even prettier in crochet projects. (We do admit to being a little biased, though.) This mug cozy project combines the best seasonal colors with an awesome ombré technique. You're gonna want to wrap your morning brew in it every day!

  • Just as in a boxing match, the best way to win at crochet is to use a good hook. But choosing the right crochet hook from among the gazillions on the market isn't always easy. For one reason, what's right for one person may not be great for another. What's more, different projects and types of yarn call for different shapes and styles of hooks.
