Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock… You only have a few minutes to sit down and crochet, but you really want to have something finished soon. Perhaps you’ve got a gift you need to give and you don’t have time to work up something complicated. Don’t fret, because I have collected our favorite “Less Than An Hour” free crochet patterns. These projects all work up in a jiffy, and are perfect for the beginner who has just learned how to crochet because the stitches are easy to memorize and the finished project is done before you have time to worry about whether you are doing it right or not.
If you’ve only got a few minutes, grab that crochet hook, a skein of your favorite yarn and one of these free crochet patterns and take a seat. Get started, and before you know it you’ll have a finished project. I keep projects like these on hand for those “emergency” situations – like having to wait at the mechanic or the kids’ after-school activities – you really just never know when you’ll have that extra few minutes of time to sit and work on a crochet hat or crochet headband pattern.
