7 Crochet Patterns to Take on the Go

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?!)

Finer Things

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).

1. Starlight Evening Shawl

The Starlight Evening shawl is crocheted using 5 skeins of Vanna’s Glamour in the Topaz colorway. The repeating pattern provides interest while being easy to memorize and manage while traveling.

2. Men’s Crochet Socks

Socks are perhaps the classic travel project. They are small and somewhat involved for extended crafting time. These socks are “mens” and worked in Lion Brand Sock Ease yarn.

3. Independence Day Scarf

This dainty triangle scarf is worked up in 1 ball of Vanna’s Glamour yarn. The main body is worked in a simple stitch with a delicate border accent.

4. Emily Shawl

The Emily Shawl is a half circle design with repeating bands of patterning. Worked in Vanna’s Glamour. Or choose your favorite Lion Brand CYC #2 yarn.

 Simplicity Is Key

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.

5. Tilted Blocks Cowl

This easy cowl looks like you’re working with several different yarn colors, but it is actually completely with just 2 skeins of Landscapes yarn!

6. Cedar Springs Afghan

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.

7.  Last Light Cowl

This cowl is a perfect on-the-go project. The straightforward texture pattern is a no-fuss design, so you can comfortably work and chat away. Crocheted using Vanna’s Choice yarn.
