Here are a few of the latest, quickest, cutest crochet goodies I’ve found on the internet to share with you.  Hope you like them.  You’ve still got time to make a handful of these sweet things for your home/family/friends.  Get busy!

Pull out some thread and work up a bunch of these quickie snowflakes to sprinkle around your home.  You can get the free pattern here.

Grab an inexpensive sweatshirt and create something unique and original in a couple of hours.  I’d love to see these motifs used as little white pockets on a bright, red shirt.  See the pattern and other ideas here.  The edging is purely optional!

This beautiful Chunky Cowl will workup very quickly with the proper yarn.  And what a great gift this will be – or a great treat for yourself!  Get the free pattern here and see more pictures of it.  Crochet it in a sparkly yarn for a stunning New Year’s Eve fashion accessory.  Whoever wears it will feel very posh.


These cute little PomPoms would work perfectly for their intended use – as hair ties – but I could also see them used as package toppers, parts of a garland, or small ornaments.  What do you think?  You can get the quick free pattern right here.

Finally, here is another teeny, tiny item you can work up quickly and use in a variety of ways.  Use up those partial skeins of thread or yarn.  Make as ornaments, package toppers, hair ties, appliques, etc.  You’ll find a bunch of ways to use them.  The free pattern and tutorial aren’t in English, but you won’t have any trouble following along to make your own.

    Nice article – I’ve got a cute little link to add:
    Crocheted Babys in nutshells:

    They are a bit waldorf-like and a kind of last-minute crochet Christmas gift.

    I made granny snowflake ornaments from this pattern:

    I used Vanna’s Glamour yarn in white and silver and they turned out great. Only takes half an hour to make one.

    No specific pattern was given for this pocket. I included it because of the idea of using a crocheted piece as a pocket.
