Crochet Tools and Accessories

As crocheters, there are certain tools we absolutely need to do our work. Of course, our favourite hooks in a variety of sizes and obviously yarn. Those are definitely the two most important items but I was curious as to what others found to be essential tools and accessories.

I have some of the most wonderful Instagram followers. They are so supportive, kind and creative and I knew that they would totally help me out with this one. And no surprise, they shared some wonderful insight into their most frequently used accessories. So, I’ve put together a post sharing the most popular items mentioned along with some of my own favourite crochet tools that I find useful.

Cozy Travels Neck Warmer – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet neck warmer patterns are one of my favourite things to design. They often work up quickly and don’t use a lot of yarn which also makes them great stash buster projects. They are fabulous for market prep, stocking your online shop, gift giving or simply as a treat for yourself.

The Cozy Travels Neck Warmer is a fun design to work on. Crochet this piece in two colours as is written in the pattern or simply keep it one solid shade. Both options create a simple, textured design that is perfect for keeping warm and cozy on those chilly fall days.
