Learn stitches including:
A bold stitch that works well in two or more colors. It works in all weights of yarn and is ideal for accessories and homewares. The yarn should be cut when changing colors and the ends woven in as you work across the row.
An easy way to add visual interest to plain projects, you can use this stitch pattern on blankets, scarves, and wraps, where it looks very effective between rows of plain stitches. You can also experiment with working the cluster groups in contrasting colors.
Extended Single Crochet Mesh
Extended single crochet is used to make a taller stitch with good stability that can be used for a variety of projects including garments. The one-row repeat is suitable for corcheters at all skill levels.
This stitch is very relaxing to crochet. Once you have worked the first two rows, there is only a single-row repeat, which you will quickly learn. Change colors as often as you like to make bright, colorful blankets and accessories. Chevrons also create interesting effects when you use textured yarns.
Wide Double Crochet
A simple variation of standard double crochet, this pattern creates a lacy and open fabric with plenty of drape. It is best to use a hook one size larger for the foundation chain so that the stitches do not pucker.
Easy Mock Bobbles
Give your crochet a subtle bobble effect without the effort by using this combination of tall stitches and double crochet. It is very easy to work, making it suitable for the novice crocheter. Use smooth yarns to accentuate the texture.
A good example of how simple stitches can be combined to create pleasing textures. Using a combination of single and double crochet, this pattern is ideal for garments and blankets because it holds its shaper well. It is also easy to memorize.
Shallow Single Crochet
This pretty variation on traditional single crochet gives an effect similar to knitted stockinette stitch. It creates a slightly denser fabric that holds its shape well, and can be used for garments, homewares, and accessories.
