When it comes to knitting and crochet, most of us may think of the same thing. Winter. Cold. A sweater that warms the body. Well, who says this type of creativity only works for the cold season? Plus, not only grannies do this in their spare time. Some designs from this craft can also look fun to young people.

There are plenty of designs. Check out these five coolest knitting and crochet projects for references.
