Quarantine 2020 – Crochet Pattern Roundup to the Rescue!
Okay, I’ve now completed my 90 day trial of 2020. How can I cancel? Does anyone have the number to customer service?
If you’re anything like me, this “social distancing” and “quarantine” stuff is getting old fast. There’s only so much Netflix you can watch on any given day! And my house is so clean and organized I could be featured in an HGTV magazine.
Luckily I don’t have any small humans to try to entertain or *gasp* try to help through school right now, but you people who are doing that are seriously my heroes.
For me, not a lot has changed in our daily routines, other than I have more time for crocheting. YAY!
And now online shopping calls to me more than ever…
I started drooling over some new crocheting gifts that I would like to buy for myself the other day, and then realized I own most of them already…*sigh* So what’s a girl to do? More crocheting of course!
I’ve been getting some great emails from fellow crochet bloggers about new patterns they’ve posted. And I thought that I’d do a pattern roundup of my favorite ones. (If the crochet slang words that our community uses sometimes confuses you, I have a helpful blog post here that can unravel things for you!)
Break out your hook and yarn, and then dig into this pattern roundup to retain what’s left of your sanity at the end of the day. (Or if you can skip right over to this cup cozy pattern and start this fun project now!)
I’ve also got a great list of self-care ideas that you can check out if you’re in need of a break and can’t think of a single thing.Don't Just Sit There! Start Crocheting These 7 Patterns NowClick To Tweet
Quarantine 2020 Pattern Roundup
First up on the pattern roundup list is this oh-so-cute little bunny! Seriously how adorable is this??? Made from a single crocheted rectangle in super fuzzy yarn, this is the absolute best weekend project! And it would be a great stash buster idea. Imagine how many of these adorable little bunnies you could make with your yarn scraps for Easter weekend? Looks like I have some crocheting to do…
Next up on the roundup list, is this easy loop yarn blanket. Sarah always has the cutest patterns and best tutorials. This loop yarn blanket would be a great project for the kiddos to get involved in. Super easy to make, and so soft and cuddly, this blanket would be a wonderful little throw for their bedroom.
Or how about making one for a baby’s tummy time adventures. The possibilities with this blanket are endless!
This scarf from Stephanie at All About Ami is STUNNING, can you believe how simple and beautiful it is? I can imagine this done in a light blue or lavender for the springtime. It could also be done up in a heavier weight yarn (the pattern calls for a level 3 yarn) to make it a versatile winter/fall scarf.
I think it would be a great quarantine project to tackle and have it ready when it’s time to rejoin society!
This is likely one of the most fun projects I’ve ever created. This crochet LEGO blanket pattern works up surprisingly fast because it’s done block by block. Work on a stack of blocks and then sew them together into whatever size blanket you’d like!
This is also another great yarn stash-busting idea. You could do each block in a different scrap yarn and then have a hodge-podge of blocks and colors. The ideas are literally endless.
As soon as I saw this blanket, I absolutely fell in love. I have not gotten up the courage to try Tunisian yet, but this blanket makes me want to change that very soon. The simple colors and subdued tones make this little treasure something I want to get started on right now.
And Chiwei has this pattern listed for free on her website! Score!
Okay, this isn’t a whole project so much as a technique that I HAVE. TO. TRY. IMMEDIATELY! Look how cool the fringe on this scarf is! I want to reach through the screen and run my fingers through it.
The cool thing is that Toni has a video tutorial that you can use to make this awesome addition to your projects. Head over and get learning, I’ll meet you over there.
And last on our crochet roundup list, are these incredibly squishy and warm slipper socks from Rohn Strong. I’m a little bias towards them because they’re made with a purple yarn, but they seriously look so comfy.
I think this would make a great Mother’s Day gift for someone, or make a pair for yourself if it’s still chilly in the mornings where you are. (Like it is here…seriously Spring, where are you?)
So there you go, seven great patterns to get started on right now. I mean why are you even still sitting there? These patterns are all beginner-friendly and something I feel like you could complete fairly quickly, depending on your skill level and the amount of time you’ve got.
When you’re done doing one of these projects, you’ll have some leftover yarn I’m willing to bet. Check out this article for some great stash-busting ideas!
