Crochet for beginners: 6 simple patterns
What fascinating hobby develops motor skills and imagination, stimulates creative activity and relieves stress? Of course, this is crocheting, which was also loved by our grandmothers. Having mastered just a few simple tricks for beginners, you can create beautiful and useful things with your own hands, and we will help!
1. Heart crocheted
Any thread and a hook of a diameter suitable for them will suit you. Thick fluffy threads, plush, melange or terry balls look interesting - so the heart will also be textured. To make it dense and even, take the hook one less than the recommended size.
Wrap the tip of the thread with a ring around the finger, pull out the hook through and tie 3 air loops. Straight into the ring, knit 3 columns with two and 3 columns with one crochet. Make an air loop, another column with two crochets, a second air loop, 3 columns with one and 3 with two crochets. Make 2 air loops, a regular column, close the part and tighten the base loop.
2. Little flower
Take woolen yarn and a thin hook 1.25-1.5 mm, so that the flowers are dense and elastic. Wrap the ring around your finger, pull out the hook and tie the slip loop. For a petal, dial 5 air loops and knit a regular column in the ring for fixing - and so 5 times. Gently hold the petals with your fingers and tighten the ring tightly.
Tie a connecting column in the first loop of the next petal. Go up, knit a column, then a half-column, then 3 double crochets, again a half-column and a simple column. In the same order, starting from a single crochet, tie all the other petals.
3. The basic pattern "Grandmother's Square"
This knitted pattern is equally good for napkins, scarves, clothes or any other products. Make 5 air loops and lock in a ring with a connecting column. Make 3 air loops, double crochet and knit a column with it through the ring, and then again.
Pick up two air loops and knit another 3 yarn stitches into the ring. Repeat this two times to complete the circle, and close it in the third free loop. For each next row, first make 3 connecting posts, and in the fourth loop repeat the pattern in a circle.
4. Double-sided ribbon lace
You will need 8 loops of thin cotton thread, looped by a column with 2 crochets. Make 4 stitches, unfold the blank and stretch 5 double crochet stitches. Dial a new chain of 4 stitches and knit in the previous column with 2 crochets. Knit the second segment in the same way, and continue on with this algorithm. When you are finished, open the ribbon to straighten it if it twists during the knitting process.
5. Mouse crochet
Even a beginner without experience can knit a cute and simple mouse with a crochet in half an hour. You will need any colored thread for the body, pink for the ears, black for the antennae and a synthetic winterizer for filling. Pick a hook according to the size of your threads - usually 2-3 mm is enough.
Type 3 of the simplest air loops with the base yarn, and then knit 6 simple columns in the first. In all the loops of the previous row, knit 2 more single crochets - you get 12 loops. In the next row, alternate one and two columns in a loop - and continue in the same spirit according to the scheme in the video.
In the process, near the end, fill the body with syntepon, while it is still convenient. Knit the last row completely without decrease, cut the thread and tighten a small hole for it. Tie the tail with regular air loops, securing the thread directly to the body.
Impose the ears immediately on the mouse with the crochets, and then again hide all the ends inside. To make a mustache, cut the black thread into three pieces and stretch through the nose. Tighten the threads by three knots for volume and shorten the antennae to the desired length, and at the end you can embroider eyes or sew beads.
6. Openwork napkin
Take 18 air loops with a thin thread and lock it into the ring through the first loop using the connecting post. Dial 3 lifting loops and knit 32 double crochets into a circle. To close the circle, tie the connecting post into the third loop of the lift.
Take 6 air loops, make a double crochet, insert a hook through one loop and knit a double crochet. Collect 3 loops and knit a double crochet through the previous one. Continue to the end of the row and close the circle again with the connecting column in the third loop.
Get 7 stitches, make 2 yarn and knit a double stitch at the top of the double crochet. Collect 3 more loops, make 2 yarn and knit 4 unfinished columns with two in the arch - this is your main step. Tighten all the loops on the hook with a column and continue to the end of the circle.
By the same principle, do all the following circles until you get the desired diameter of the napkin. Do decorative loops around the edges with the help of air loops and crochets. Gently tip the thread at the end into loops and shorten it.
