Easy Crochet Patterns

Looking for Easy Crochet Patterns?  If you are just learning, here are some great starter projects. Keep it simple but still make something amazing.

Videos on the internet, can be very helpful when you are just starting out. No need to struggle, trying to read a pattern or understand abbreviations.

I have tested these and they have renewed my interest in crocheting again. I've gone from being annoyed, disgusted and discouraged to realizing I CAN do this and I'm having fun doing it.



Learn how to crochet a scarf. Once you do one, you will want to do a whole bunch.

There is always someone in need of a warm, cozy scarf

Feeling brave? This crocheted hat is still easy but is a step up from the simplicity of a scarf.

I've always thought of this as a hippie hat but this slouchy will look great on anyone! It is also really comfortable to wear.

Have you tried any plastic bag crafts? This beach bag is another simple project.

Here is why crocheting is better than knitting….

Crochet only needs one hook, not two.

It is safer to wave the hook around in the air, no pokey ends, like knitting needles have. Less chance of injury.

If you make a mistake, you can just pull it out. No backwards crocheting required. As a novice, I rip the stitches out a lot!

Making a chain is easier than that casting thing knitters have to do. Cast on cast off. Ugh. I still haven't figured that out!

Knitting requires more coordination. I'm too big of klutz.

Crocheting only stresses one wrist, not both. If you get arthritis in one wrist, you can switch to the other hand. Well, if you are ambidextrous, that is.

If you have given up on crocheting, I hope that these easy crochet patterns will encourage you to try again.
