Crochet accents add such a creative flair to any room, which is why I’ll never get tired of working up small and large projects alike to use and display in my home. Being able to create something with your own two hands that you can use in your daily life is such a wonderful thing, don’t you think?
Whether it’s a cabled throw cushion cover for your favorite wingback chair, or an extra chunky and whimsical woodland moss basket to store your yarn in, every maker needs some fun new projects to try out!
