Scarves are easy - anything, in fact, that doesn't have to actually fit, like a sweater, because it may take practice to get a consistent tension, and the patterns can be easier to read, unless it's something really elaborate.
Come on over and join us at the Crochet Corner thread - we have a lot of fun.
Anything you can think of to do in a square formation. Pillows are 2 squares sewn together. Ponchos are 2 squares sewn together with holes in the seams Scarves, of course. Then when you get the hang of squares - with simple shaping, the sky's the limit! Congrats on teaching yourself!!
I finished my first potholder... its all brown and ALMOST a square! lol
I am working on my second one now. I am doing a striped one to get practice changing colors. And this one is more square so far... making progress!
I was actually thinking of starting an afgan! I could still do these little projects to break the monotony.
I have been looking online at patterns and I found a few I want to try. One for a dish cloth with a scrubby in the center crocheted with "plarn", which is plastic bags cut into strips. And then another one for a jar opener made with the rubber shelf liner stuff you can buy at the dollar store and a crocheted edge. I was thinking those two with a couple of potholders would make a nice gift.
Going to try my hand at some "plarn" tomorrow. I only have scrappy yarn that I grabbed at the thrift store to practice with, so my afgan will have to wait till I get some nicer yarn.
