Learn to Crochet with these Beginner Crochet Patterns (Blog)

I have been encouraging as many people as possible to learn to crochet. It is such a rewarding hobby (and it can even turn into income!) with so many physical and emotional benefits. The repetitive motion of crochet is very therapeutic and calming. I relax and unwind each night with my hook and yarn while the hubby watches some TV. I have 4 kids, so most days, I really need some unwinding ūüėČ Unfortunately, I hear so many people say that their experience with crochet was the complete opposite of calming. They became frustrated and gave up. In most of these cases, the problem is that the wrong skill level pattern was chosen. ¬†When one begins with a pattern properly suited to the correct¬†skill¬†level, the first project becomes much more successful. It might not be the photo¬†you admire on Pinterest, but you will gradually develop your skills until it’s YOUR photo that goes viral on Pinterest. So here are some great patterns that I recommend for beginners. The patterns are well written and I know these designers personally. They will gladly give pattern support, if needed. And YouTube is a great resource too!

An Apple Cozy by Accessorise is a very nice small project to test your skills and everyone needs a bruise-free apple!
