What is The Easiest Thing to Crochet For a Beginner?

The easiest thing to crochet for a beginner is a pattern that involves basic crochet stitches such as the single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc) or double crochet (dc) such as…

  • Scarf
  • Dishcloth / Washcloth
  • Small Blanket / Baby Blanket

When you are first learning to crochet, working back and forth in rows is always a good way to start crocheting until you feel comfortable.

For this reason, I recommend starting your crochet journey with a beginner scarf or washcloth, then working your way up to bigger projects like a cowl, hat, and blanket as you gain confidence.
