Crochet Shawls, Scarves and Wrap Patterns
Depending on the season crochet scarves can be made with different weights of yarn to accommodate the weather. For winter, a large crochet scarf would be perfect for keeping warm, but meanwhile, in the spring you’ll want a lightweight three wool fiber yarn.
Crochet wrap patterns, prayer shawls, and larger triangle wraps are perfect for every time of the year too! Some of the best crochet wraps are usually ones that use a beautifully draping yarn that almost looks delicate.
The Isle Wave Wrap is a perfect for transitional seasons such as spring & fall. The easy stitch repeat makes it a great wrap for beginners to crochet!
Beautiful Crochet Flowers
Crocheting flowers for blankets, hats and more is the perfect way to use up any extra yarn you may have left over. Crochet flowers are also great for beginners to work up and can be made in almost any color, shape or size! I love adding crochet flowers to a crocheted stem too and giving as a faux crochet flower gift!

Make Sure to be Prepared With the Perfect Yarn and Crochet Hooks
Over the years I’ve learned quite a bit about the different types of yarn and crochet hooks that a person could use. I even wrote about my favorite and what I think are the best crochet hooks to use when crocheting.
When beginning, there are many options for yarn brands to pick from when choosing the perfect fiber. I like to suggest that a new crocheter use an inexpensive yarn that won’t be a significant loss if that person decides crocheting isn’t for them.
For beginners, I would highly recommend Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand, Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Super Savors. The last one is not my favorite, but it is a great yarn to start with when beginning a crochet journey.
Now with this big list of crochet pattern ideas and information, let’s get started!
