It sounds incredulous, but there are times when we all get a fed up with our WIPs. Sometimes, we just don’t know what to crochet, despite being surrounded by yarn and hooks. When boredom strikes, our advice is to step bravely into new crochet territory, and try something new! Here are 5 ideas to help you get back into the crocheting flow.
1. Change your yarn weight, brand, or fibre
Do you love 4ply? Are you crazy for dk? It’s time to break the habit and try going up a yarn size or more! Go chunky, or super chunky – a giant granny square works up super fast into a gorgeously quick blanket! Or if you only use chunky yarns, consider a lace weight for something drastically different and exciting.
If you’re a Paintbox fanatic or a Debbie Bliss devotee, then switching brands is a great way to jazz up your makes. Crocheting with new yarns, and yarns with varying fibre mixes is perfect to give life to you WIPs. Acrylic fans, go for a merino blend. Wool lovers, why not try a light cotton yarn? The possibilities are endless!
