“What should I try first – knitting or crochet?” This is a commonly asked question from new crafters as it's possible to confuse the two, but in truth, there is no one answer that fits all. The craft that's best for you really depends on what type of person you are and what you hope to make, so if you're keen to get going but you're not sure where to start, take this quick quiz to find your calling.

Crochet Doll’s House Furniture That Is Just Too Cute For Words
There’s something about doll’s house furniture that is just so sweet. And when it’s made from our very favourite material – yarn, obviously! – then it’s all the more adorable. Our doll’s house furniture crochet-along is something you just HAVE to take part in. So crochet all three parts and make a little one squeal with delight… or, indeed, make your own childhood dreams come true!
Read on to find out how to make crochet living room, bedroom and nursery room furniture for a standard 1:12 scale doll’s house…
Part One: Living Room
We’ve got a sofa, cushions, coffee table, lamp, TV, TV cabinet and rug for you to crochet. Doesn’t our Sylvanian family look right at home? Variegated yarn works really well for the rug, while a touch of easy embroidery helps bring the cabinet, cushions and lamp to life. You could also crochet miniature bunting to decorate the walls.
Make our crochet living room furniture.
Part Two: Bedroom
The crochet bedroom furniture is just as sweet! Make a bed, patchwork blanket, pillow, side table, mirror, rug and wardrobe to complete the room. All three parts use basic stitches, so you’ll have all of the items done in no time at all. Want to make the bed bigger? It’s easy enough to extend your stitch count.
Make our crochet bedroom furniture.
Part Three: Nursery
Use pastel colours to crochet nursery room furniture. Our pattern includes a cot, changing table, rocking horse, mobile and playmat. Isn’t it cute? The mobile has mini stars and a crescent moon hanging from it, but why not experiment with other shapes if you prefer?
Make our nursery room furniture.
If you don’t have the yarn kits that came with issues 97, 98 and 99 of Let’s Get Crafting, just use colourful DK yarn from your stash – we’ve also used variegated yarn for the living room, eyelash yarn for the bedroom, and fluffy, fleecy yarn for the nursery, but this isn’t essential.
And don’t feel like you have to own a doll’s house for these projects to work. Life is what you make it, so use a shoebox, a shelf or even the floor to play make-believe. Our sister title PaperCrafter has even got a project on how to make wonderful doll’s houses from cardboard boxes, washi tape and a few scraps of paper…
