With summer in full swing it’s always nice to plan for weekends at the cottage or camping. The enjoyment of getting away from it all and finding some peace and quiet, to relax and make the most out of summer. These kinds of weekends call for a knit or crochet project to work on, below you’ll find some tips on the best types of knit and crochet projects to bring to your summer weekend getaway.\n\nSmall Knit and Crochet Projects\n\nSmall projects are always great for a weekend away, you get the satisfaction of having a project to knit or crochet and one that you would finish faster than a larger project. Taking into consideration how quickly you stitch, a great small project for weekend stitching would be dishcloths, hats, baby blankets or scarves. When looking for a small project you also want to look at how many skeins of yarn the knit or crochet pattern calls for, choosing a pattern that calls for only 1-2 skeins should be a small enough project to complete on the weekend. Take a look below at some of our most popular small projects for weekend stitching.\n\nKnit and Crochet Dishcloths\n\n\n \n \n \n\t \n KNIT SKILL LEVEL: EASY\n At Your Service Knit Dishcloth\n\n\n\n CROCHET SKILL LEVEL: EASY\nSailor's Knot Dishcloth\t\t \n\n \n \n\n\n\nKnit and Crochet Hats\n\n\n \n \n \n\t \n KNIT SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE\nIm a Hoot Knit Hat\n\n\n\n CROCHET SKILL LEVEL: EASY\nStepping Texture Hat\t\t \n\n \n \n\n\n\nKnit and Crochet Scarves\n\n\n \n \n \n\t \n KNIT SKILL LEVEL: BEGINNER\nMen's Basic Hat \u0026amp; Scarf Set\n\n \n\n\n CROCHET SKILL LEVEL: BEGINNER\nStraight Up Scarf\t\t \n\n \n \n\n\n\nKnit and Crochet Baby Blankets\n\n\n \n \n \n\t \n KNIT SKILL LEVEL: EASY\nIn a Wink Baby Blanket\n\n \n\n\n CROCHET SKILL LEVEL: EASY\nOne Skein Baby Blanket\t\t \n\n \n \n\n\n\nEasy Knit and Crochet Projects\nChoosing a pattern you understand is also another great way to find knit and crochet projects that are quick and easy to make over a weekend trip.
