Whether you’re brand new to the wonderful world of crocheting, or you’re a seasoned crocheter with a trail of blankets and scarves to prove it – there’s just something so nice about having a simple project to work on! But, simple doesn’t have to mean boring. Not by a long shot. These projects only require simple stitches – single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet, but the end results are totally breathtaking! Go ahead and find your next crochet project on the list below!

Ruffled Purse

Isn’t this ruffled handbag absolutely adorable? I love everything about this, from the bamboo handles to the ruffled details on the bottom of the bag. If you’ve never crocheted something like a bag before, this is a super easy first project for you to work on! It’s pretty straightforward – you’ll start by crocheting around one of the bamboo handles, and then continue in rows of half double crochet until you reach the other handle.

Isn’t this a lovely fall and winter clothing item? These ponchos are all the rage right now, and it’s easy to see why! They are so comfy and cozy, and perfect for the cooler months ahead. After all, what’s not to love about a socially acceptable way to wear a blanket out in public? If the idea of crochet clothing items is stressful or overwhelming to you, take heart! This is such an easy project – in fact, you’re really just going to crochet one piece, wrap it, and add the scalloped edges. Get the free tutorial right here!

Cocoon Cardigan

This is the perfect cardigan to wrap up in while reading by the fire, or out on a walk during a brisk fall day. Not only is this cardigan adorable, but it’s also actually really easy to make! The majority of this pattern is simply crocheting a rectangle of double crochets. Seriously, it’s that easy. There’s no multiple of stitches to start out with since it’s just double crochet, so you can make a custom fit! Once you’ve crocheted the rectangle, it’s just a matter of folding and closing the seams and finally adding sleeves. Watch a video tutorial right here!

V Neck Crochet Top

If you’re like me, you may be hesitant to jump right into crocheting a fitted garment, but this video tutorial from Moogly blog takes all the guesswork out of it. You can get the free right or left-hand pattern on the blog. Would you believe this entire top is made up of double crochets and chains? That’s right! Anyone can make this!

Denim Cardigan

I always thought crocheting clothes would be far too difficult for me, but I couldn’t have been more wrong! Now I’m kicking myself for not trying a clothes pattern sooner! This cardigan, for example, is mainly made up of half double and double crochets. If you know how to do those two stitches, then you can absolutely make this adorable piece of clothing! It is worked in on the main piece – starting with the back – and then the sleeves are added on at the end. Get the full tutorial here!

Saturday Sweater

How cute is this crochet Saturday Sweater? I love how airy the sweater is, perfect for those casual weekend days when you’re out running errands. If you’re anything like me, I tend to stick to the projects I am comfortable with like blankets, scarves, and the occasional hat. For some reason, crochet clothing items feel a little too out of my comfort zone. This Saturday Sweater, however, is the perfect project to work on! It’s crocheted in a repeating pattern of two rows, and there’s no shaping involved. This is such an easy pattern, anyone can crochet it! Get the tutorial here!

It’s official – fall is here! This time of year always makes us want to take a walk out in the beautiful foliage and hear the leafs crunch under foot while sipping on a warm coffee or tea! This crochet jacket is perfect for one of those lovely autumn walks, don’t you think? This might look like a complicated project, but it’s actually quite simple. If you can double crochet, you can make this jacket! Get the tutorial here!
