Crochet is a great way to slow down and relax, but sometimes it can be more difficult to try and figure out what you want to crochet than to actually crochet.  If you are having this issue, then I’m here to help you with 101 fun ideas on what to crochet when you are bored!

I know when I was younger that my mom hated us using the word ‘bored’ so it was barely ever heard in our house.  She told us that if we were bored that there was always something to be cleaned so we learned early on to never sit under her and say we are bored.  Apparently me and my siblings would rather have been bored than clean or fold laundry, LOL.  

But, I will admit that sometimes you just have those days that you don’t know what to do and you are actually bored.  Crochet is a great thing to do to help keep the boredom blues away and I’ll be sharing 101 project that are sure to keep you busy!  

And, the best things about all these crochet projects?  They are all FREE crochet patterns!

What to Crochet When You Are Bored?

Whether you are bored and learning to crochet as a new hobby or have lost your crojo (that’s mojo but in crochet, haha), you could crochet so many different things like Dish cloths, Coasters, Baby Hats, Scrubbies, Amigurumi or even a mug cozy, the list could literally go on forever. 

Even if you are maybe bored of working on the same crochet project and want to do something different or to work on smaller projects, I got you covered!

I’ve broken it down into different sections with a different topic of fun crochet ideas underneath each section.  So, whether you are wanting something useful to crochet or a small project, I’m sure you will find the perfect project to crochet!

Go grab your crochet hook and yarn because here is the ultimate list of 101 things to crochet when you are bored!

  1. Are we sisters?! Bored was a word we never said either…chores were abundant or Mom would crest fun projects like making flower pots from clay in our backyard or learning to knit or crochet or embroidery. That was great!
