After the high of teaching 2 crochet classes for Mind UK and unleashing 14 new hookers into the wild, I thought it was time I did a round up of the best beginner crochet patterns for anyone looking to up their crochet game…

So without further ado, here are my 15 Best Beginner Crochet Patterns!

#1 – Ragdoll Unicorn by Spin a Yarn Crochet

While I love teaching granny squares during my classes, they aren’t the be all and end all. Sometimes it’s nice to relax with a straight line and not work in the round- especially if you’re a newbie. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make amigurumi… sort of!

This is a great pattern for all beginner crocheters as you only really need to know how to do a UK Double Crochet! Plus it’s super cute! I’ve made a few now…

#2 – Amma Granny Square Top by Maria Valles

If you do love the repetition of a granny square but are stuck between making a blanket made up of multiple grannies, or making one huge never-ending blanket, how about opting for clothing instead?

This beautiful top is made by joining two granny squares together and is an adorable way of showing off your new-found craft!

#3 – Call the Veterinarian Blanket by Love, Aly

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try this beginner-friendly pattern that will help you create gaps in your work- and voila! You’ve just learnt filet crochet. This kind introduction is a great step to picking up other filet patterns!

#4 – Granny Stripe Scarf by Purl Soho

I couldn’t resist sharing another granny-inspired item. This scarf is great for those who don’t want to commit to an entire blanket but want a beautiful accessory. I can picture this in a nice cashmere or merino yarn to keep your neck warm in the winter… we’re bound to have a cold one this year, right?

I love that you can make it in a multitude of colours or even just keep it plain and simple! It sure is a beauty! And beautifully easy!

#5 – 1 Hour Beanie by Jess Coppom

Go on, try a hat! I dare you!

Honestly it’s not as intimidating as it sounds with this great pattern. It’s all based off of a square sewn up the side embellished with a cute pompom of your choice! You’ll learn a new Back Loop Only technique too so you’ll be well on your way to becoming a perfectly rounded crocheter!

#6 – Lemon Squeezy Pullover by Ashlea Konecny

This one looks more intimidating than it is. It only uses two stitches to give it that amazing textured effect so it’s well within a beginners range! Give it a go when you’re feeling more confident and you’ll be rewarded with a great garment! I have one of my own and I love it to death!

Whichever pattern you try, remember it’s okay to make mistakes! With crochet you can always rip back and practise until you get it right! I’ve chosen patterns that are fun and rewarding to make so hopefully you won’t lose motivation even when things go wrong! Good Luck!
