Crochet Patterns for BeginnersBy Rachel Choi – 3 Comments
Taking the dive into working with crochet patterns can be daunting for a beginner. So here’s a few tips and free crochet patterns to get you started!
Tips before beginning:
- Always have the crochet abbreviation chart with you. This will tell you what all those funny symbols and letters mean.
- Choose a pattern that is labeled with the skill level beginner.
- Choose a pattern that you won’t get bored working on.
- Make sure the project isn’t too big. It’s nice to get instant satisfaction when you’re a beginner to help boast your confidence.
- Take your time and work at your own pace.
- Be patient if something doesn’t make sense initially. Remember to go back to the abbreviation and symbols chart to help you figure it out.
- Don’t be shy if you need help! Ask the designer of the pattern for help.
