Don’t miss these 5 crochet hacks!
Optimizing your time with these crochet and yarn hacks is a no brainer. Don’t miss these 5 crochet hacks, guaranteed to make your life easier.
1. Make a mini pompom with a fork
By winding yarn around a fork, and passing another strand through the tines to tie it together, you can slip it off the fork and cut it apart. Trip it up, and voila! A mini pompom!
2. Bend your crochet hook so that it fits on your key ring
You can bend the end of your hook around to make a loop that can slip onto your keyring for on-the-go crafting. Don’t feel like bending your hook, or use wood hooks? Check out these ready-made keyring crochet hooks: you can get it with a variety of charms, like a donut, a tree, a teapot, or a Hobbit door.
3. Make a giant pompom in less than 5 minutes
Just like it’s mini-sibling, the monsterpom can be made in about 5 minutes with a ball of yarn and some scissors. Who doesn’t need an oversized pom pom?
4. Make a makeshift yarn bowl
When you lose all patience for your cats attacking your yarn, pull out a paper clip and a bowl to create a fabulous makeshift yarn bowl.
5. Wind a center pull ball of yarn
Center pull balls of yarn are the best thing since sliced bread. They don’t tangle and they don’t roll. Make a center pull ball of yarn using a crochet hook by keeping one tail outside as you wind the yarn around the hook. At the end of the yarn, take the hook out, and voila! Center pull!
