15 Knit & Crochet Patterns for Multitasking | Red Heart

Feel like there isn't enough time to sit and stitch in your life? We never feel like there's enough time to devote to our favorite hobby and have noticed a growing trend!

Our love of stitching has leaked into other activities as we take our yarn bag on-the-go!. Everything from streaming videos at home and hanging out with friends, to traveling by car or plane has added to a new row to our crochet and knitting projects.

If you're wanting to start multi-tasking with your stitching, look for patterns that have simple stitches and shapes. Lots of shaping, or intricate stitches could spell disaster if they don't have your undivided attention. Even with a simple pattern, don't forget to pause your stitching when the show or conversation gets really interesting, or you may have to pull out a mistake!

To help increase your confidence with knitting or crocheting without having to look at every stitch, don't forget to practice. Try making a stitch with your eyes closed, think about how your hands move to make a stitch.

Even if you need to glance down from time to time, you'll still be able to follow along with your friends. If you're stitching while watching a show, it might help to watch something you've seen before as you get started. That way you won't worry about missing out on anything!
