I love having a quick and easy crochet project that I can take with me to work on while waiting in the car or watching TV. It is even better when it makes a perfect little handmade gift!

Browse through the patterns at Lion Brand and you will be amazed at all the fun things you can make.

I found a pattern for this crochet coffee cup cozy. This is a perfect project for beginner! Lion Brand has great videos to show you how to crochet.
