Learn to Crochet: 7 Easy Single Crochet Patterns

Share this idea!

Here are seven easy single crochet patterns for the beginner! Since I’ve been sharing a learn to crochet series, I thought I’d round up some easy to crochet patterns that incorporate the stitches you’ve been learning. The first “real” crochet stitch we learned here on The Birch Cottage blog was the Single Crochet (sc) stitch.

So, let’s take a look at seven really easy single crochet patterns that are perfect for beginners. Actually, the Chevron Baby Blanket is probably the most challenging of the seven projects I’m sharing today, but, it shows you exactly what you can do with one little stitch!

7 Single Crochet Projects from The Birch Cottage

Although I really can’t stress enough how important it is to practice the basics over and over until you’re able to create stitches that are consistent in size, you do need to actually use the stitches in projects! I mean, how are you ever going to learn to put all the skills and techniques together if you don’t ever actually begin a crochet project?

Afterall, that’s why you’re here, right?!

7 Easy Single Crochet Patterns

These seven easy to crochet patterns all have one thing in common – they incorporate the single crochet (sc) stitch in their pattern. You also need to know how to hold a crochet hook, hold your crochet yarn, how to make a slip knot and how to crochet a chain.

Fortunately, you can find tutorials for each of those techniques right here on the blog. I’ve also created videos for each so you can easily follow along. In fact, you may even want to visit my YouTube channel and subscribe so you’ll be one of the first to know when I release a new crochet tutorial or pattern.

I hope that these seven single crochet projects give you an idea of some of the easy crochet projects that you can do to begin to use your new crochet skills.

Learning to crochet can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be frustrating! Practice makes perfect! And, like I keep saying like a broken record – you really do want to practice your basic crochet stitches over and over so that they become second nature and so that you’re able to crochet stitches that are consistent in size.

If you need a little more help with the single crochet stitch, you can watch my video below or watch it on YouTube:

I look forward to sharing more crochet tutorials with you as we embark on this learn to crochet journey together!

Til next time…
