Quick Crochet Projects to Help You Ring In The New Year

Hello everyone! Tara here—

There’s nothing better than finishing a project before the new year.

If you aren’t close to finishing the projects you’re working on now, why not sneak in another quick little project?

Here are a few wonderful projects that you can get done before the new year:

# 1: Cute & Cozy Trapper Hats

These hats use a large hook and super bulky yarn and can be whipped up in an afternoon. Everyone in your family will love them!

# 2: Maggie’s Magic Mittens

You can use some of the worsted weight yarn you have laying around to quickly stitch up these mittens! Because the stitches aren’t complicated, you can turn this project into a stash-buster and let the different yarn colors shine.

# 3: Snowy Day Cowl
