A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017.

Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects.

Dishcloths for a really quick project or scarves for a pretty quick one. Thanks for your giveaway!
*Do you have a favorite go-to item you like to crochet that is quick and easy? (For example: hats, dishcloths, etc.).* My favorite go to item to crochet are hats. I tend to collect a lot of hat patterns. Also, I like to crochet shawls. Depending on the size, shawls are easy to crochet and it does not take me long to crochet them.
My favorite quick go to itemy to make are flowers. They can be added to make sresths, bracelets or just about anything. All in one roses are my favorite!
My favorite go-to items to crochet are scarves, mainly as a fashion accessory rather than for winter warmth. I love wearing them and friends and family like getting them as gifts. I am always on the look-out for interesting patterns and yarns for my scarf projects.
My go to item to crochet is hats. They were the first item that I learned how to read a pattern and are so easy.
My go to easy projects are hats and dishcloth or washcloths. Washcloths and homemade melt and pour soap make a great quick gift.
Dish clothes/wash clothes and pot holders……need to make a new cover for the handle of my cast iron fry pan before the girl scout troop goes camping next month.
Thanks for the opportunity! I often spend my crochet time on fairly involved projects. However, when I’m in a just-need-a-hook-and-yarn-in-my-hands-with-no-specific-goal mood, I’ll try some motifs or swatch up unfamiliar stitch patterns. I enjoy playing with gauge and stitching a pattern with a variety of hooks and yarns. It all tends to get ripped!
My go-to project is crocheted knockers. I am part of the group “Knitted Knockers of Minnesota,” the Minnesota chapter of KnittedKnockers.org, supplying prosthetics for breast cancer survivors. Easy pattern and very portable.
Socks. I’ve always got a sock project ready!
When I just need something to keep my hands busy, and when I don’t have other things ready to work on, I’ll make a simple dishcloth (or 3!). Otherwise, I enjoy picking a single skein from my stash and making a cowl. I tuck the FO into the gift box for a future birthday or holiday.
Hats are pretty much by go-to item. I have two organizations that I donate to regularly; one for baby items and one for adult hats. I’ve used several Oombawka patterns for my donated hats.
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
I don’t have one go-to quick item — it depends on the time of the year and how much time I have even in urgent situations (all day, vs. an hour or so). My go-tos are ornaments or small mandalas (if I have rings handy to mount them in), about 3-4 hat patterns that I have down cold, or several shawls that work up quickly (if I have a whole day).
My favorite go-to item are scarves!
My favorite go to item to crochet is cowls. I’m to the point now that I doubt I could live long enough to wear them all!
Hats are always something that are quick & easy to make and I sell piles of them every year at the craft fair so I enjoy those. For something that takes a full night of crocheting I lean towards amigurumi’s – another big seller 😉
I like making cowls using post stitches.
Not really. I just crochet whatever is needed at the time.
When I’m wanting to make something fast, I usually make Christmas ornaments so I have a stash when the holidays roll around.
I love crocheting dishcloths. They’re fast and easy and there are just oodles of different patterns out there.
I tend to prefer bigger projects that will hold my interest for longer. My go-to is monkeys, but they take a couple days, so not exactly quick. I did, however, love the accomplished feeling of whipping up several of flyingflower’s Tunisian crochet dishcloths in an afternoon for a holiday gift for a friend last year.
Awesome ! Thank you!
I love to crochet scarves for a quick project, and work on squares for pillows, etc.
Hats for charity.
hats, & now dishcloths.
I like hats for quickness, and also enjoy scarves.
What a great prize! I’m really enjoying ravelry.
And I didn’t notice the question I was supposed to answer! I crochet a lot of beanies/hats and shawls/scarfs.
One of my favorites & on my birthday too! 🙂
I don’t have a favorite thing I like to crochet yet.
I am always working on some sort of project though.
I enjoyed her most recent 12″ square she published for MooglyBlog. Great photo tutorial
I enjoy crocheting cowls, in bulky yarn.
I like to do cowls.
face scrubbies, dish towels.
Granny Squares for later.
Face & dish scrubbies, and shawls. And any kind of gift!
When I don’t have a lot of time but I need to do something with my hands, I make dishcloths or face scrubbies. If I have longer, hats.
I really enjoy making shawls, but my go-to easy project is a baby blanket.
Thank you for the giveaway,
I hope I’ll get it…
P.S. I’m new to crochet, so for the time being, I do every thing at home, in front of the computer for tutorial…
I love to crochet hats
my favorite go to is hats
My favorite go to item is usually a doily. I use them as part of my gift wrapping instead of a bow on the package. Thanks for the giveaway.
Yes – I love making hat/scarf sets with any yarn combo I can find!
