Try a great book like Better Homes and Gardens Crochet On The Go! Along with the usual larger afghan designs (some made from granny squares), it’s filled with a variety of smaller projects that you can work on anywhere—a bookmark, pincushion, facecloths, pillows, baby toys, lots of scarves, a really cute floral headband, and more!
If granny squares are your thing, take them on the road with you. Here’s a cool book to take along—Grannies Gone Wild (if nothing else, the title will catch spectator attention). It features 6 afghans and wraps to crochet, plus, it’s the perfect portable size for sliding into your project bag.
Make hats with a copy of Lisa Gentry’s Celebrity Slouchy Beanies to Crochet! You can add dark glasses, wear your hats yourself, and pretend to be a movie star this summer—or save them up and donate them to charity—there’s always a need for your creativity out there!
You can never have too many dishcloths, so crochet up some more with the 9 patterns in The Crochet Dude’s pattern book—All Washed Up. I love crocheting with cotton yarn, so dishcloths are a favorite project for me, plus I like that I can shove this perfectly-sized book right down in my purse. It’s from our Little Book series, so it fits!
And here’s a little bonus for my readers—comment on this post sometime between now and Monday, June 13, tell me about the last time you crocheted in public, and you might be a winner of a signed copy of The Crochet Dude—Drew Emborsky’s All Washed Up for your very own.
