Speed is a hard thing to judge as we all crochet at our own pace. However, I’ve tried my best to choose crochet patterns that can easily be finished within a couple of hours or less.

What Makes a Quick Crochet Pattern?

Quick crochet projects often involve bulky yarn, small patterns and simple stitches.

They make great scrap busters, gifts and market sellers plus they’re perfect for when you’re lacking motivation or need a quick win to break up the monotony of a larger project.

Tips & Tricks for Quick Crochet Patterns

  • Use the right tools. Finding the right hook that feels comfortable and works best for you will help with speed.
  • Use bulky yarn. Thicker yarns work up much faster than thinner ones and require less stitches to create a larger piece of fabric.
  • Use variegated or self-striping yarns. This will help you achieve a fun look without the need for colour changing and with a lot less ends to weave in.
  • Be organised. Make sure to gather all your supplies before you get started so you spend less time looking for things.
  • Practice makes perfect. The more you practice the faster you’ll get.
