Mastering crochet takes desire and patience. At first, crochet patterns may seem complicated so this is an easy crochet pattern to start with.
All projects begin with a slipknot. Create the knot, and slip the crochet hook in the loop you created, and then tighten it to fasten the knot. The basic crochet stitches are single crochet (sc), chain (ch), double crochet (dc) half double crochet (hdc) and finally treble crochet (tr).
Your foundation stitch is your chain, or ch. With your slipknot on your hook, do a yarn over, and begin making as many changes as the pattern requires.
Let’s look at a scarf pattern for beginners.
1. Start with chain 15.
Start with 15 chain stitches.
2. Row 1, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in ea of next 13 chs, ch 1 (to turn). (14 sc).
Through a single crochet into the second chain from the heart, but do not add any more to the chain. Count only the first chain attached to the hook.
3. Row 2, sc in ea sc across, then ch1, to turn. (14sc)
A single crochet stitch is done in every single crossed a stitch across the pattern. Unless noted otherwise, crochet in both loops of the stitch. Enter your hook below the top loops found in the stitch, so you can start to create the next single crochet.
4. Last row, sc in ea sc across. (14sc)
Here you will perform a single crochet in every single crochet that goes across the pattern, but don’t make a chain one at the end of the row. When you’re finished, leave some links to secure the weave at the end, then cut the yarn and weave the ends.
