I have so many crochet projects going that sometimes it feels overwhelming. When that happens, instead of sitting down and finishing one, I start a new project, but one I’m guaranteed to complete because it’s a do-it-in-a-weekend crochet project!  Weekend crochet projects are usually simple designs or ones that use a big hook or chunky yarn. These crochet properties work together to let you truly accomplish a crochet project in just a few hours.

These quick and easy patterns are also perfect for beginners. Being able to complete a project in just a few hours can boost their confidence and get them going on a fun and inexpensive hobby!

Many of these weekend crochet pattern books are inexpensive, and others are free! Read below to find out how to get hundreds of crochet pattern books for at no cost!
