Is there anything that could be worked on by two people at once and become some type of group project?
I want some type of bonding project that me and someone else could work on together, but I can't think of anything besides squares that would work.

I think a free-form crochet project would be great for this group idea.  People could work together adding different stitches in different random colors to make it really unique and as it gets bigger, it would be easier to get more people to work on it.  Maybe a large afghan or "crocheted art wall hanging?"

Thanks for the replies, a freeform project sounds pretty cool, I want it to be something that two people were working on at the same time, squares and seperate peices would feel too much like working on different things.
Plus one of the people I want to work on it with is a boy who doesn't like to make flowers lol.

make a small starter square and then you can both work it from opposite corners and spiral round into a large square blanket
or you could make a small starter bit and work away from each other and make a scarf

I know you aren't wanting to work on squares but how about this one?  It would be very symbolic too!
Okay. Of course now I can't find the link... I will see if I can find it.
It looked like a yin yang - with two intertwined circles.  You could make one of the circles and he can make the other and then you can both work on the finishing spots - at that point you could make them in to anything - a hat, tote, afghan, scarf, whatever you want.
I think having the two intertwined circles would be incredibly symbolic - and not so girly girl.

There aren't too many things I can think of that would be duo tolerant other than squares - but anything that is worked in pieces could become a join project... like say you both agreed on a sweater pattern - you could make the front, he could make the back and you both make a sleeve - ya know what I mean?  As long as you both get your gauge in sync all will be good in the end.

I will see if I can find that link for the blanket.  It is actually one of my wips - I ran out of the yarn I was using and it was long gone discontinued so I had to stop... One of these days I will finish it.... and give it away. Shocked

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I don't have new ideas, but I think, too, that a freeform project would be great. You could work on it together by using the same skeins of yarn or by making everybody one scrumble and then sewing them together immediately.
You can also alternately add scrumbles (see the evolution of the scrumble at knotjustknitting.com).

To see how others made this, you can check the Google search result for 'freeform crochet group project'.
