Easy Crafts – You Can Totally Make These

Sometimes you just want a craft project that is simple but effective.

This week’s Top 10 In Craft is all about Easy Crafts.

Easy does not mean boring by any means.

There are some fab ideas to try out, I hope you find something that you’d like to do.

On My Needles

Last week I mentioned I might repeat a dishcloth pattern, as my youngest daughter really wanted me to knit her a Natte Dishcloth. I used up the light shade of aqua yarn that I had left over.

Knitted Natte Dishcloth

My youngest also tackled a more difficult knitting pattern this week; a knitted rose. She is still working on it but she has really enjoyed learning new techniques.

I love sharing craft time with my children and seeing their skills and confidence improve.

CotLin Reflections Yarn by KnitPicks

Blue is one of my favorite colors and with the warmer months approaching, these yarns would be perfect for lightweight garments.

CotLin is a cool and lightweight Tanguis cotton and summer linen blend that is durable, wearable, and softens with every wash.
