10 Easy, Beginner Crochet Stitch Patterns

Today I would like to share 10 Easy, Beginner Crochet Stitch Patterns.  These patterns can be used to make blankets, afghans, scarfs, tablerunners and many other projects.

I have added some of my favorite stitch patterns.   Most of these patterns are video tutorials but I’m sure you will still find it useful information.

These 10 Easy, Beginner Crochet Stitch Patterns can be made using any size hook as long as the hook size is appropriate to the weight of yarn used.

You can make the pattern larger by using a larger hook and heavier weight yarn.  The opposite would be true for making the pattern smaller;  Use a smaller hooker and lighter weight yarn for a smaller pattern.

The best way to determine how many chains you’ll need for your project is to crochet a gauge swatch.  Once your swatch is made you can measure your piece to determine how many chains you will need to get your desired width for your project.

10  Easy, Crochet Stitch Patterns

  1.  Easy Crochet Edge / Trim –  This edge is perfect for kitchen dish towels or handkerchiefs.  I have also used it along the edges of baby blankets.  I really like the edge little peak edge it creates.  It uses basic stitches.  Learn to crochet this beautiful crochet edge in a free YouTube video tutorial, link below.

2.      Crochet Leaning Blocks –  This Easy, Beginner Crochet Stitch Pattern is a nice pattern to use for a lightweight baby blanket or perhaps a shawl.  It is open and so it is ideal for warmer weather.

The pattern can be repeated until you get the desired width.   You can try using cotton yarn for a summertime blanket.

Then you just keep adding rows until you reach the desired height. What I like about this pattern is that it is a repeat pattern.  Once you get the first rows down you are set to go.  Perfect for working on while watching TV with the family.

3.     Crochet Granny Ripple Stitch –  This stitch is one of my favorites.  I just love the way it looks.  The pattern is worked in a repeat.

The best way to find out how many chains you’ll need to begin is to prepare a gauge swatch.  Now you can measure your repeat and determine how many chains you will need for the width of your project.

You can make this pattern in a solid color but I find that adding at least 2 colors makes this pattern really pop out.    For the full written pattern click here:  Granny Ripple Pattern

4.      Crochet Seafoam / Ocean Waves. –  The next stitch is the Seafoam also known as Ocean Waves.  I find this pattern to be quite soothing.  I have made several baby blankets using cotton yarn.  This made these baby blankets ideal for warmer weather.

5.  Arches and Shells Stitch –  The arches and shells crochet stitch pattern is great for shawls, and scarfs.  I love the open design.  Once again this pattern can be made using only one color but I find 2 or more colors works best.

I chained color after crocheting a couple of repeats.  This gives a little more definition and reduces the number of yarn tails you will have to sew in after you finish your project.  I don’t know about you but I really dislike having to sew in tails.

I don’t even remember when was the first time that I crocheted this pattern.  I hope you like it.  Of course, it can be used for more items than just blankets.  Your imagination is the limit.

8.   Crochet Hexagon with Circle Center –  This is another variation of a crochet hexagon shape.  This one uses a circle center.

I used 2 colors but you can use only one if you prefer.  Remember, changing the size of the crochet hook and yarn weight will change the size of your crochet hexagons.
