A compilation of free and fun crochet patterns to make for college students. Choose from fun or comforting makes.
Flying the nest can be an emotional time in everyone’s life. Whether you have a son or a daughter about to go to college, it sure is a big change in their lives.
To make this big transition easier, it is a lovely idea to gift them an item that is going to remind them of home.
No matter how old they are, there will be times when they miss home and get a little homesick.
In tough moments when the “grown-up life” gets a little overwhelming, it would be lovely to have an item made especially for them.
This is to remind them that although you might be far away, you are still with them.
To show them the love and support they might need while they are going through this big change in their lives.
I have chosen 10 free crochet for college students patterns that are fun to make and a great gift.
