11+ Easiest Free Crochet Patterns for Coboo Yarn (stunning!)

Summer will be here before you know it, so it’s a great time to start looking for lightweight yarns, and Lion Brand’s Coboo Yarn is the perfect option. It’s a DK weight yarn made of cotton and bamboo, which means it’s breathable and will help you stay cool all summer long. Plus it’s soft, machine washable and dryable, and comes in two dozen beautiful colors!

Let’s take a look at some of the easiest crochet projects you can make with this yarn. From home goods to accessories to clothing, the possibilities are endless!

1. Happy Baby Ripple Afghan

This super fun and colorful baby afghan is a breeze to crochet! While the ripple pattern may look complex, it’s actually made of easy chain and double crochet stitches. Once you get the hang of the ripples, it’s just repeating rows with a few color changes, so it’s very meditative. And of course the blanket is the perfect gift for any babies or new parents in your life!

2. Crochet Bunny Lovey

Free pattern by Cuddly Stitches Craft here!

Another great baby gift is this adorable Bunny Lovey that combines amigurumi and blanket techniques. The pattern calls for easy stitches, plus a few more-complex techniques—working in the back loop only, invisible decreases, and large increases—but there are instructions for each of these as well as links to tons of video tutorials. That makes this a good project for beginners who are ready to expand their skillset.

3. Short Hills Shell

If you want to crochet some summer clothes, check out this gorgeous tank top! It can be made in five sizes, from small to 2XL, and it uses easy stitches. Plus, it’s worked in two pieces, front and back, and then seamed together, so by the time you finish one side, you’ll be a pro at the second.

4. Beryl Cowl Neck Top

Another stunning summery top is the Beryl Cowl Neck Top, which can be made in six sizes ranging from small to 3XL. Like the previous top, this one is great for beginners because it calls for simple stitches and is worked as a front piece and a back piece that are seamed together.

5. Tulip Square Crop Top

Looking for an even more lightweight summer top? This Tulip Square Crop Top is a stunning option that can be made in sizes small to 5XL. It’s a wonderful project if you enjoy making granny squares, and it uses easy stitches so it’s also great for beginner crocheters. The best part? It has a reversible neckline, so it’s basically two tops in one!

6. Crochet Everyday Cotton Cardigan

Of course, not every summer day is blazing hot. If you want warmer clothes for a crisp summer evening, or even for fall or spring, this cardigan is a beautiful option. The pattern includes instructions for sizes XS to 3XL, and it uses pretty easy stitches, though you’ll need to know how to do front post and back post double crochet.

7. Miriam Crochet Beanie

Free pattern by MadameStitch here!

A beanie is another great way to stay warm on a cooler summer day and into the fall and winter. This beanie has an absolutely beautiful texture, and it can be made in four sizes, from baby to adult large. It’s also adjustable even beyond that size range—just remove or add rounds of double crochet when making your flat starting circle. The pattern calls for easy stitches plus a few rarer techniques that are described in full, so it’s the perfect project for beginners who are ready to branch out.

8. Crochet Vintage Hair Scarf

Free pattern by Selina Veronique here!

This pretty crochet vintage hair scarf is the perfect way to accessorize any outfit! Exact gauge isn’t essential, so this is a great project for beginners, especially if you haven’t made clothing or accessories yet and want to give it a try! It uses super easy stitches and works up quickly, and the pattern includes both US and UK terminology.

9. Next to You Shawl

Free pattern by Lion Brand Yarn here!

This absolutely gorgeous lightweight shawl is perfect for spring or a chillier summer morning. You don’t need to match an exact gauge, which makes this a good beginner project. The pattern calls for easy stitches, but you will need to know how to do foundation half double crochet and cross-double crochet, so make sure you’ve got a few projects under your belt before you begin this one. Thankfully, the pattern has detailed instructions for both of those stitches, so you’ll learn them in no time!

10. Zen Cardigan

Free pattern by Teresa Chorzepa for Lion Brand Yarn here!

This cardigan is another wonderful spring and summer garment! The checker-like pattern will add a stylish pop to your wardrobe, and you can make the cardigan in sizes small through 3XL. This pattern is a good choice for intermediate beginners, because it uses easy stitches but requires knowledge of reverse single crochet.

11. The Mouse

Free pattern by Ivy Smith here!

Blankets and clothes aren’t the only things you can make with Coboo yarn—it works for amigurumi as well, and this mouse is a super cute example! The pattern calls for easy stitches and has great explanations and lots of photos, so you’ll be able to whip up an adorable mouse in no time! Plus, you can choose from right-handed or left-handed instructions.

12. Tiny Tote Bag – Airpods Case

Free pattern by Little World of Whimsy here!

One last pattern that uses Coboo yarn is this fashionable airpods case accessory. Since it’s so small, it works up really quickly and uses less than a skein of yarn—it’s the perfect project if you have a partial skein left after making one of the other items in this round-up! The pattern uses easy stitches and even has a link to a video tutorial for an invisible finish off, so if you’re a beginner, you’ll breeze through this project!

Which pattern will you be choosing from this round-up? They’re all so fun that maybe you’ll need to make more than one!
