These are our favourite small crochet projects

Yarn crafts such as crochet and knitting have seen a huge rise in popularity over the last few years.

But after you learn how to crochet, you don't always have time to complete ambitious projects like a crochet blanket or a crochet vest.

Sometimes, a crafter needs a simple project they can complete in an afternoon. And that's when small crochet projects are great – from cute book sleeves to fun earrings, they're great pieces for your home and wardrobe which won't take more than a few hours to make.

Here, we've rounded up our favourite quick crochet projects to inspire you to get stitching. There's something for every style in this selection – happy crafting!

Cute tulip coasters

We love incorporating flower patterns into our projects and we're big fans of all things tulip inspired, so this quick crochet coaster is top of our list to try.

You can follow our step-by-step video on how to do tulip stitch crochet here – all you need is a square of the stitch to make a sweet crochet coaster!

Give a gorgeous book sleeve

Book sleeves are such a fun granny square project and (depending on the size of the book!) can be worked up in a few hours.

To make a book sleeve, crochet a granny square approximately twice the width of your book. Stitch two of the edges together in an envelope shape and place your book inside. Stitch on a button to fasten the sleeve and you're done!

We've got a simple step-by-step video tutorial to show you how to make a crochet book sleeve here.

Crochet flowers

Flowers are a great small crochet project that can use up oddments of yarn. Our easy how-to guide on crochet flowers will get you started making a pretty flower that can be used in everything from homemade cards to customising clothes.

Cute crochet earrings

We can't get enough of the crochet earrings trend this summer. They're such a fun project to work on and mean you can have accessories to match every outfit. What's not to love?

We love these adorable crochet earrings that @realm.designs shared on Instagram – the strawberry design makes them the perfect statement for summer.

We have the perfect pattern for a crochet daisy garland for you to try. And if you'd like even more inspiration, we love this pink flower garland from @pollyandpo on Instagram.

Accessorise with a charm

Another fun quick project is a crochet charm to add to your bag or purse. These are adorable and can be anything from crochet flowers to fruit and amigurumi animals.

Keep your page with a bookmark

A bookmark is another great quick crochet project. Most crochet bookmarks are worked using a foundation chain followed by two rounds of stitches, making it a great make to work up in an afternoon.

This heart bookmark from @amorbydani on Instagram is oh-so-sweet – and means you'll never lose your page again!

Super easy crochet scrunchie

The big hair scrunchies are back on trend and what better way to make something completely unique than by crocheting your own? You just need a regular elasticated hair tie, your choice of yarn and know how to do some simple crochet stitches.

We love these pastel scrunchies from @whatmorganmakes on Instagram – you can stitch one to match every outfit!

Spread the love

We love a crochet garland – they're such a lovely way to add colour to a plain wall. This love heart crochet garland from @kates_crochet_critters on Instagram. It's such a great way to use up pink and red yarn leftover from other projects.
