The best time of the year is here! Finally, you can start decorating for the summer, and for those of you who have a balcony / patio, we really recommend taking your creation outdoors. Crocheting in the sun with a cup of tea is the coziest thing there is.

Do you lack inspiration on how to decorate your home this spring? Here are 5 tips on what you can create, and which fits in with the season:

1. Crochet flower pots

We all have old pots at home that we don't know what to do with. Give these a new life! Different types of covers for pots are easy to crochet and change the look of the old pot at once. You can crochet pots from most of the yarns we have, but we especially recommend EKO Medium Tube yarn and EKO Braided rope 5mm as these have a bit more structure and strength. See our instructions for a crocheted flower pot here.

NOTE. Keep in mind that the yarn is not waterproof, if you have a pot with a hole in the bottom, you need some kind of mat / plate under the pot so that the water does not run out! :)

2. Hang your plants with string lights

A neat way to let the plants come to the windows, near the light, but also make it cozy on the terrace or balcony! Different types of amps are very easy to make and adapt to your own style. For ropes, we recommend EKO Braided rope 5mm , which is a strong yarn and can hold even a heavier pot, and which is available in many nice colors. You can make a  hanging pot holder with a nice, twisted detail at the top with our instructions here.

3. Crochet rags for spring cleaning

Crocheted cleaning cloths are very easy to make, even if the yarn is slightly narrower. This is a perfect project to take on a trip, as the yarn weighs practically nothing! You can never have too many crocheted cloths at home, as these can be used for all types of cleaning and are easily washed in the washing machine (40 degrees). The perfect yarn for crocheted cloths is Bamboo 50g , which is available in several nice colors. You can find the instructions for a simple crochet dishcloth here.

TIP: A cloth that is normal size requires approx. 30g of yarn, but if you need a larger cleaning cloth, you can always make yours slightly larger!

4. Crochet cushions for the terrace / balcony

Med kuddar har man ofta lite samma dilemma som med blomkrukor; dessa blir lätt kvar "liggandes någonstans", även fast ett enkelt sätt att göra om dessa är att antingen köpa nya fodral - eller virka själv. Såklart föredrar vi virkat, av återvunnet bomull! EKO Mini Tube yarn 1000g är ett fantastiskt garn att virka kuddar med, och med Lizettes nya instruktion "Kuddfodral 2" får du en jättefin struktur till kudden. Instruktionen hittar du här.

5. Crochet or tie rugs to the floors that needs some love

Crocheting or tying rugs is both a lot of fun, but also a fantastic way to create rugs that are exactly the size you want. For crocheted rugs, we already have several instructions on our instructions page which you can find here, and more are on the way!

We also have several yarns suitable for carpets; if you want to crochet, we recommend EKO Froté Craft yarn , EKO Medium Tube yarn , EKO Braided rope 5mm or EKO Mini Tube yarn . Which yarn you choose depends on the texture you want for the rug. With EKO Mini, the carpet is not so thick, which makes it easy to move. EKO Medium & Braided rope 5mm has more firmness and structure. Carpets made in EKO Froté are perfect for e.g. the bathroom or next to the bed, where you want something soft under your feet.

If you want to try macramé, we have made an instruction for a macramé rug that can also be varied in size. You can find all instructions for different carpets here!

6. Last but not least - crochet baskets for easy storage! :)

Crocheted baskets look stylish and fulfill a function in everyone's home. We now have several different instructions for crocheted baskets, see them all here!

Baskets are easiest to crochet with EKO Medium tube yarn or EKO Braided rope 5mm . If you want a smaller basket, EKO Large 330g is also enough for a basket as in the picture below.
