Mother’s Day Crochet!
Crochet is a fun way to make handmade Mother’s Day gifts. It’s easy to learn and doesn’t require a lot of fancy, expensive equipment – just yarn, a crochet hook, some yarn snips and a little love. New to crochet or experienced at wielding the hook? Need something quick or want to take some time? Use up yarn scraps or plan a piece with just the right colors? Something that’s just plain pretty or has a practical use as well? Check out these Mother’s Day crochet projects that span the range and get started – Mom’s gonna love it!
The chevron is a classic crochet pattern. You’ve probably seen it used in pillows and afghans. But it can do so much more! The on-trend color block Chevron Wreath covers a lightweight foam shape from the craft store. Follow ChristaCoDesign’s helpful tips for checking your stitch gauge before you begin so your crocheted piece will fit the form perfectly!
What a fun way to use up colorful scrap yarn! Petals to Picots shows you how to make these cute little orbs. Filling a glass vase to create a Crochet Ball Centerpiece is just one option. Fill a pretty bowl, string a garland or make a pretty trivet. Once you get started…
A stitched edge adds a touch of nostalgia to modern prints. A Crochet Edge Pillow is a sweet accent to a family room or bedroom. I love this combination of fabric and yarn from You Go Girl – what would your mom like?
After you’ve made a few blossoms to adorn a Crochet Flower Card, you’ll want to keep going and put cute flowers on everything! Hello Yello Yarn gets you hooked (get it – hooked!) on stitching 5-petal flowers, then shows you how to make the card for Mom. This card is a keeper!
Enjoy these sweet cupcakes guilt-free. No calories! Crocheted Cupcake Dishcloths are fun to use, and they clean really, really well. Twinkie Chan has great instructions. Mom can use these every day or put them on display.
No cold shoulders here! Especially not if you crochet a Dixie Charm Shawl for Mom to keep her comfy on chilly evenings or in an overly air conditioned space. The pattern from ELK Studio is pretty enough to wear to special events, but Mom will want to use it more often.
Granny squares are back big time, and these Granny Square Pincushions are an adorable gift for the mom who loves to sew. These are small, so they work up quickly with Lulu Loves’ instructions. The soft color palette shown here is so pretty, but they would be fun in bright colors, too.
The geometric patterns in the Heathered Eyelets Wrap make this a perfect layer for work or play. Pretty, but not frilly. I love the variegated color palette that Fiber Flux has chosen. But you could go monochromatic or add metallic yarn for evening sparkle. Mom can wear this wrap several ways for different looks.
It’s sometimes hard to find a bracelet that fits, but My Favorite Bracelet has a forgiving, flexible fit. This is a quick crochet project by Oombawka Design with kind of a bohemian vibe that’s fun to make and fun to wear. Short on time? This is an under-an-hour project.
When Mom needs time for a relaxing soak, she deserves some soothing luxury to go with it. Moogly has designed a Pampering Massage Soap Saver that Mom can use again and again – just add a new bar of soap. The crocheted texture is gentle on the skin while it massages and exfoliates. Moogly suggests that you include a bar of pamper-worthy soap with your gift.
Explore the fiber jewelry trend and make a Puff Stitch Necklace for Mother’s Day. Make a single strand or multis, wild or sedate, short or long. Jessie At Home’s pattern is all crochet – the “beads” are puff stitch!
