Last week we looked at portable knitting projects and single skein shawls for traveling. Today it’s time for crochet to shine. As with knitting, single skein projects make great travel companions. Finer gauges and more intricate designs will also provide additional hours of crafting on the go, which means less yarn and projects to pack. (But who are we kidding? I’ll pack 5 new projects for an overnight trip. Because you knit faster on the road, right?!)
These projects are worked using lightweight, CYC # 1 & 2, yarns. They require some focus, so may not be good social travel projects. However, the fine gauge will mean more time to complete. Consider these designs for when traveling as a passenger (planes, trains, and automobiles).
These designs are easy to knit in social situations. With basic shapes and repeating stitch patterns you will be able to chat and stitch the day away.
Surprised to see an afghan on a travel project list? The right design can be made to take with you. This design is worked in panels, so you can take one panel with you and sew them together later on. Crocheted using New Basic 175 yarn.
