This collection of crochet pieces for beginners is divided into 3 levels of difficulty:
- Beginner: is based on easy symmetrical projects made by using the basic stitches, which means single, half double, double crochet, slip, and/or chain stitches. It is important to get used to counting your stitches in each row. Therefore you should begin with crochet pieces that have a regular amount of stitches such as coasters, pot holders, placemats, even blankets, and rugs, etc… You will want to check this beginner collection.
- Advanced: are simple items made with the basic stitches as well, and might be started either with the base of chain stitches or a magic circle. Counting your stitches is also important for these pieces for an even look. In the advanced collection you will find items such as the ones above as well as bags, pouches, hats, etc…
- Challenging: goes a little further by making stuffed objects, alternating stitch types, learning a variety of other stitches, and/or use more complex patterns. The things that you can make at this point leaves it to your imagination. If it is stuffed animals, cushions, dresses, etc… The most important remains –> counting your stitches.

Crocheting is, as well as any other craft, divers. You can follow instructions, and when you are comfortable with it, just start creating your own pieces. In no time you will add your own little spin to your items. I always enjoy making things and sharing my handmade items as gifts with friends and family. The best reward is a smile on their faces.
