Beginner crochet projects to try

I've had a few comments from people recently saying that they are thinking of learning to crochet.  So here are a few simple projects to inspire you!

All the links to the patterns and lots more inspiration can be found on my Pinterest board.

How about a pair of easy hand warmers?
And how about some gift ideas for the men in your life? 

Just in case you need further yarnspiration here are a few useful links I have found with free patterns (I'll add them to my links page too and keep that page updated).
  • Crochet Pattern Central - a huge directory of free patterns
  • Crochetville - a forum with lots of resources including free patterns
  • Ravelry - another forum but also lots of free patterns and advice
  • Crochet Spot - patterns tutorials and ramblings
  • Pinterest - if you are looking for crochet inspiration you must look here!
Feel free to suggest some more!

  1. What thickness of wool did you use. I fancy having a go at making hand warmers. Is it easy to adapt patterns if you use thinner wool?
