In celebration of the launch of our new blog, Stitch and Unwind, we’re bringing you a great collection of yarn crafts from all over the Web! And even if you don’t know how to knit or crochet, there are a lot of fun projects that you can make with yarn…no needles or hooks required!
Spring is a great time to learn lace knitting. The weather lends itself perfectly to light and airy scarves, cardigans, and wraps. This Green Shimmer Scarf is perfect for a day out at the farmer’s market or a mid afternoon walk in the park. It’s easy to make and the bright green color is perfect for spring and summer.
Speaking of spring, the time to clean and organize is upon us…so what better way to use up old yarn scraps and organize your nick knacks than to create easy and fun crocheted bowls and baskets? This Beaded Jute Basket is great for holding your keys and glasses. Place it by the front door so you always have a place to toss keys, change, and other small items. It will keep you organized and prevent you from misplacing your keys!
And even if you have little to no experience with knitting or crochet, you can still create beautiful home decor items by crafting with yarn! You can use yarn to color and decorate everything from wreaths to wooden letters. This Yarn Ball Wreath, for example, is an easy and fun project that you can display any time of year. It would make a fun gift for those grandmas who love to shower you with knitted hats, scarves, and gloves!
So if you’re still looking for a way to celebrate National Craft Month, dig out that yarn stash and browse through our favorite yarn craft finds from all over the Internet!
