If you want to work a challenging crochet pattern for experienced crocheters, try one of these.
Vintage patterns often require skill and experience to crochet. This vintage beaded bag is no exception; it's an exquisite design that not just anybody has the patience for. Between the fine threads you need, the tiny beads, and the charted pattern, it would take a very special crocheter to attempt this type of work. But if you do make one, oh, how fabulous it will be!
Layered Flower Necklace
This pretty necklace is worked in embroidery floss. It's a bit fiddly, requiring patience and skill to create, but it's a reasonably quick project. It doesn't involve a huge commitment in terms of either time or money; the materials for crocheting the necklace are affordable and readily available.
Even if you don't think of yourself as an experienced crocheter, you could probably achieve good results with this pattern; I've created a step-by-step tutorial showing you every step of the process for creating this necklace.
This textured mini tote bag is a fun and challenging project. It's really cute, and useful, too!
