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, half double crochet or double crochet. When you are first learning to crochet working back and forth in rows is always a good way to start until you feel comfortable. With this in mind I recommend starting your crochet journey with a beginner scarf or cowl.
