20+ Easy Crochet Projects

Check out all of the easy crochet projects that are perfect for beginners in this post! The hard part will be choosing a crochet project to start with.

Easy Crochet Projects

Winter is one of my favorite times of year for picking up fresh crochet supplies and kicking off the season with a new crochet project or two.

Today, I am sharing 20+ Easy Crochet Projects that any beginner crocheter could create! If you need a crochet refresher course, be sure to grab my Learn To Crochet eBook for all the crochet basics and step-by-step visuals.

Crochet is the perfect take along hobby!

My boys always have a request or two for things that they would like me to make. This year is no different, as Cameron just informed me this morning that he would like a Baby Yoda amigurumi, pretty please.

Wish me luck on that one! Amigurumi are not my forte. I prefer bigger projects over small crochet projects. They work up fast, so that I can see my progress quickly.

Tiny crochet stitches can be difficult to see and work with as a beginner. Someone who is a master at making small items, like crochet dolls and amigurumi?! My 92-year-old grandma…she blows my mind with her teeny tiny amigurumi crochet skills.

Crochet tips for beginners:

  • Choose beginner crochet patterns that are straightforward and simple to start. Like this Crochet Headband project.
  • Look for basic crochet stitches that are easy to learn, like double crochet stitches or single crochet stitches.
  • A great way to make fast progress on a project is to use large, chunky yarn, like this Chunky Bernat Yarn, with a large crochet hook. This makes seeing your stitches easier and your project work up faster.
  • Grab a quick refresher course with a great video or photo tutorial, like those in my Learn to Crochet eBook.
  • Choose smaller projects that you can finish in a timely fashion. A big project, like crocheting an entire blanket, can be a great goal, but it’s a daunting task to finish!
