10 Yarn Crafts for Kids




Many young children have an interest in yarn before they're old enough to learn crochet or knitting; however, they're still able to join in the yarny fun! Here are ten of the cutest yarn crafts that don't involve any knitting needles or crochet hooks.

Pin this HERE or use the image above. 


1. Craft Stick Yarn Dolls on Happy Hooligans. A perfect way to use up odds and ends that are a little bit too short for a larger project. 




2. Paper Plate Jellyfish on NonToy Gifts. I've made these a few times with a group of preschoolers and it's always been a huge hit! 




3. Woven Craft Stick Butterflies on The Craft Train. These are simply adorable. I imagine that even a few older kids might want to make some as well. 




4. Weaving with Kids on Art Bar. I love how colorful these are! A wall hanging that any child or parent would be proud of. 




5. Dream Catchers on Fun 365. Dream catchers are ever popular and this very detailed tutorial will help your kiddos make one of there own. 




6. Braided Yarn Dolls on The Craft Train. This one is a little more suited for older children. However, it was too cute and creative to leave out. 




7. Cardboard Role Knitting on Repeat Crafter Me. I've taught multiple children how to do this. It's fast and very easy to use. 




8. Yarn Monsters on Blue Bear Wood. These monsters aren't scary at all! 




9. Baby Turtles on Pink Stripey Socks. This adorable variation on the God's Eye is sure to be a hit with kids both big and little. 




10. Yarn Wrapped Bookmarks on The Best Ideas for Kids. Just because it's summer doesn't mean you shouldn't read. Make reading time fun with handmade bookmarks. 




And that does it! If you're interested in even more Kids' Crafts, definitely check out my Pinterest Board HERE. Happy making!

Lucy's Kimono ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Believe it or not, I started this in June. I thought it would be a good early-summer-so-sometimes-it's-chilly-at-night piece. But summer came and went and it still never got finished. Then I thought it would be a good transitioning-into-fall piece. But here it is! If you're wondering why that's because this Kimono is over 12,300 stitches and made with almost 1500 yards of yarn. You read that right.  Fifteen-hundred yards.  So I feel slightly vindicated in this delay.  I considered waiting for a more seasonable time to release this pattern but decided against it. I've worn it quite a few times and always get tons of sweet compliments. I hope you enjoy it!  Before we get into the pattern, let's talk about the Diamond Stitch.  Although the repeat is 8 rows, those rows repeat themselves so it's essentially made up of 5 rows. The repeat is a, b, c, d, e, d, c, b, a. In the back panel, this is rows, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.   Both of the

Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen.  I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway.  I ' ve been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good  photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun.  But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern.  Add this to Ravelry  HERE. Pin this  HERE. Abbreviations: Ch: Chain Sl st: Slip stitch Dc: Double crochet Shell: 5 dc in the same st Sk

Tiny Flower Blossoms: A Free Quick Crochet Pattern

I have a doozy of a simple pattern for you. These adorable mini flowers take all of three minutes to make and use somewhere between 1-4 yards (The exact amounts depend on your gauge).  This is a one-round instant gratification project. The size is a little bit bigger than a quarter. Depending on how much yarn you have, hook size, and how many petals you make, they can end up very different. The differences add to the eclectic, handmade feel.  I used yarn scraps between less than what I estimate is four-ish yards (left) and just under a yard (far right). So when I say you can use the tiniest scraps, I'm not exaggerating.  They are addictive; before you know it you'll have a whole meadow of tiny blossoms.  Add to Ravelry.
