Yarn Crafts That Require No Skill to Make!

Can’t knit or crochet? That’s okay! These 35+ yarn crafts require no special skills and are easy enough for kids to make! You’ll love them.

Yarn Crafts That Require No Skill to Make

I’ve been a knitter since I was 15, and for some reason it was really easy for me to learn. It just made sense, and I’ve taught so many people over the years.

But, for whatever reason . . . I can’t learn crochet.

I’ve taken a few classes, and I always leave the room thinking that whatever I just learned is going to be “bye bye” by the time I get home. And sure enough, I try to do it on my own – and I can’t.

What I’m getting at in a very indirect manner is that I totally understand if you’re not good with needles. If you can’t knit or crochet, it’s okay. These are crafts that aren’t necessarily easy. It’s okay if it never takes.

The thing is I have good news.

You still get to shop the yarn section of the craft store like those “other people” (the knitters and crocheters) with these 35+ yarn crafts! And you don’t need ANY skills with knitting or crochet needles.

I know . . . it’s the best news ever.

And I have even better news! Yarn crafts are perfect for beginners.

So no matter your skill level, you’ll be able to hit the fiber section of the craft store, buy some cute skeins, and get started immediately on these projects.

There are a variety of ideas including some with pom poms, some for kids, and lots of home decor.

Turns out yarn makes some pretty cool home decorations, so I’m happy to share lots of those projects with you!

I would love these in a book so that I can carry them with me all the time. :) web pages drive me insane. (Okay showing my age i am sure. LOL) thank you.

As a life long crocheter, who can't crochet any longer.... I am always looking for fun things to do with my yarn stash.
