Beginner Crochet Patterns: Easy And Free!

This site is dedicated to crocheting and beginner crochet patterns. I have a great selection of easy crochet patterns - I do not believe in complicated stuff. You do not need to spend your time translating those complicated abbreviations into a human language - you'd better spend this time on your project. :) I use only the basic crochet stitches in my free crochet patterns: chain, slip stitch, single crochet stitch and double crochet stitch (sometimes I use treble crochet stitch). You can do so many wonderful things using only those basic crochet stitches! This is more than enough for a successful project and nothing is more complicated than beginner / intermediate level.

Crochet Yarn and Crochet Hooks.

Get your crochet supplies together!

If you’ve already mastered your basic stitches and eager to start to crochet - you need to prepare the right supplies for your project. You probably have these questions in mind: (I remember how puzzled was i when i came in the yarn store first time: there was so much stuff i got lost instantly).

1. How to choose the right thickness of the yarn - yarn weight and the crochet hook? There are 6 weight categories of yarn in USA:

  • Super Fine Weight Yarn (Weight Category #2)
  • Light Weight Yarn (Weight Category #3)
  • Medium Weight Yarn (Weight Category #4)
  • Bulky (Chunky) Weight Yarn (Weight Category #5)
  • Super Bulky Weight Yarn (Weight Category #6)

You can find a corresponding table of yarn weight, gauge and recommended crochet hook sizes here.

2. How to choose the right yarn content for your project? What are the pros and the contras for the acrylic, wool, cotton, bamboo and when to use them?

2. What is the gauge? How to use it? A simple and easy-to-make device will help you! I covered this topic here.

3. What is a stitch marker and how and when to use it?
