Sticks and stones is a quick and easy project that can be made up in a night or two (a great last-minute gift!). It’s got a modern look that also reaches back to the late 70s and early 80s, especially with the oatmeal and brown yarn colour choices. This is a excellent beginner project that requires single crochet and double crochet stitches, as well as knowing how to work through the front loops of stitches.
