We love to keep our yarns and hooks at the ready and our patterns as fun and as inspiring as they get. In this blog post, we are bringing you our top 12 favourite crochet projects for you to try all year round. From seasonal patterns to quirky designs, we have it all covered!
Stay Warm And Cosy In Our Favourite Winter Warmers
Start the year off right with the playful and multicoloured pom-pom mittens. These adorable hand warmers are an ideal project for beginners and seasoned crocheters alike, and the bright colours of the yarn are sure to brighten up even the dreariest of winter days. Let your imagination fly with these creative colour combinations!
Chocolate lovers, rejoice! If you are like us and fancy a sweet treat in the month of love but don’t want to have calories to worry about, then we’re sure you’ll absolutely love this crochet pattern. Your loved ones will adore them too - after all, what better way to say ‘I love you’ than with these scrumptious Valentine chocolates?
Roses, gerberas and daffodils are guaranteed to bring a touch of spring to your home and this project is the ideal way to liven up any corner of your home! Did you know that crafted flower bouquets are also a big wedding trend? Why not adapt our flowery pattern to suit your big day?
Springtime is all about Easter, and this rainbow-like basket will help you welcome the Easter Bunny in style. Adorable bow details and bright colours are what make this pattern a not-to-be-missed project this April and you can still use it as decoration or to gather flowers or berries later in the year!
Cherry On Top
We love this luscious cherry brooch pattern for May. Add a splash of colour to any outfit with this simple but eye-catching accessory that takes only a few minutes to crochet.
The summer countdown has officially begun and we cannot wait to make our way to the beach and, hopefully, you can’t either! This versatile crochet bag pattern not only never goes out of style but is the perfect accessory to complement any beach outfit.
Our mind is still drifting away to sandy beaches and aquatic depths and we think that our young readers will adore Heather Gibbs’ mermaid doll, Melina. Swap her multicoloured tail with a skirt and she’s ready to accompany your little ones for some fun in the sun! Playtime can get even more interesting if you customise Melina’s colourful do with other aquatic details.

Stocking Up For Winter
We hate thinking that summer’s gone already but with the new season looming right before us, we thought that these jar cosies would be ideal for the crisp days ahead. Dress up your favourite jars in these multicoloured patterns and fill them with scented candles to create some mesmerising and fairy-like shadow art.
