Crochet 101: Beginner Crochet Pattern
This pattern is written in US terms.
The dish/wash cloth is a great first project. Made from just one type of stitch, the single crochet, this quick and fabulous cloth is a brilliant project to practice your new found talent and make something practical you can use with pride daily.
To get started on this project you’ll need the basic tools and that crochet confidence you’ve been bringing so far!
25g of yarn – I would strongly recommend a cotton yarn. I used Drops Cotton Light in the colours, 01 Off White, 21 Light Beige, 35 Rust.
4.5mm crochet hook
Once you’ve gathered everything you need for this project, lets get started. I’m super excited for you to start your first project!
Create a slip knot and make a chain of 30 – If you need help creating this you can find my YouTube tutorial HERE.
Row 1: Place a single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook (remember not to count the chain on the hook) continue to place single crochet stitches in every chain to the end of the row.
When you reach the end of the row chain 1 and turn your work. You will want to do this at the end of every row you finish.
Row 2: Single crochet in the first chain and in every chain to the end, chain 1 and turn.
Row 3 – 30: Repeat row 2 until you have 30 rows in total.
When you reach the end of row 30 chain 1 and cut your yarn from the ball leaving a tail. Sew in your tails and when you do remember the rule of 3. You will want to go back and forth 3 times to create a study hold within your work. Cut your excess tails.
All that’s left to do is use your beautiful make with pride.
Well done on creating a fabulous first make. I cannot wait to see. Make sure you tag me @hevshomecrochet and use #hevshomecrochet so I can see all your work and follow along with your journey too.
