Step 1: Start easy Pick an easy project that has simple stitches and just a couple of steps from beginning to end if you are a beginner. Step 2: Determine gauge Determine the gauge, or the number of stitches in a square inch. Gauge determines the finished size of a crocheted item. Tip Baby blankets and scarves are more forgiving in gauge, making them good beginner projects. Step 3: Choose yarn Choose yarn, if you are a beginner, that is light in color or sport weight since it will be much easier to see your stitches, making it easier to keep up with the pattern. Step 4: Move up Move up to more challenging projects, like sweaters, and jackets, that have to match the correct gauge, if you are more advanced. Step 5: Look at patterns Look at the difficulty levels on patterns. Most patterns are rated as beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Did You Know?
