25 Easy Crochet Patterns for Beginners!

Jessica James

One of the best things about crochet is that even beginners can make beautiful, functional items. In fact, you only need to learn a few crochet basics (such as slip stitch, crochet chain, and single crochet stitch) in order to be able to make a wide variety of designs.

Crochet scarves, blankets, and some shawls are all easy rectangle shapes. They don’t require you to know advanced beginner crochet skills like increasing and decreasing. That’s why we’ve included a lot of those, as well as some other fun and easy crochet projects, in this roundup.

In addition to the most basic stitches, it helps for beginners to learn half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet and how to change colors, as well as how to crochet in the round. With those skills, there is almost no end to the items that you can create.

Also, don’t be deterred from these projects if you are an advanced crocheter. These patterns are perfect for meditative crochet, relaxation, and instant gratification crafting.
