Fact: the best gifts are ones you made yourself, and that’s 100 percent true when gift-giving to mom. This Mother’s Day, stitch her something she’ll love for years to come.
1. Crochet Cacti
Getting your mom a plant for Mother’s Day might be a little cliché. But with a hook and simple stitches, you can crochet her a whole cactus garden. Bonus: she’ll never have to stress about keeping it alive!
2. Color Block Blanket
This modern throw is made from four-row repeats with post stitches for a dense, cozy blanket that Mom will love to curl up in.
3. Granny Stitch Vest
Turn the classic granny stitch into something modern (and oh-so-comfy) for Mom.
4. Boho Shopping Bag
Help Mom say “buh-bye” to those drab reusable grocery bags and stitch a market bag that lets her shop in style. Bonus: this tote is made up of three squares, so it’s fast and easy to make.
5. Infinity Scarf
With just two stitches (half-double crochet and double crochet) and a weekend of work, you’ll have a cool infinity scarf to gift.
6. Ombré Coffee Cozy
Choose your mom’s favorite colors and make a cozy she’ll use every morning. The linen stitch rows make it easy to join hues, so you can use as many as you want.
7. Bold Bead Necklace
Sometimes the simplest projects make the best gifts. This crochet necklace is made entirely with chaining and single crochet stitches — all you need is a beautiful bead and yarn to complement it!
8. Simple Crochet Storage
If Mom’s a maker like yourself (or maybe just wants to reduce clutter around the house), this crochet basket is an A+ gift. It’s the perfect size for storing skeins of yarn, so she can get her craft room organized.
