FAQs: Crochet Help for Beginners

What's the easiest way to learn to crochet?
This varies depending on who you're talking to. Some people need to be shown by someone in person and then be able to ask questions as they go while others can sit in front of a Youtube video (like the AllFreeCrochet channel) and learn at their own speed, pausing and repeating certain bits when necessary.

If you're a video tutorial kind of person, this comprehensive collection page is perfect for you. You'll find these tutorials broken down into easy and basic crochet stitches, ones you can find being used for most patterns, and some slightly more complicated stitches that aren't as common but still look really gorgeous.

You'll find a section on specific techniques, like weaving in ends or how to change colors as you crochet, and there's a section for crochet borders and edgings that you can add to your finished projects to give them a little something special. Finally, there's a section of full-project tutorials, where we walk you through each of the steps needed to make a certain baby bootie or hat project.

What is the best yarn to learn to crochet with?
Medium-weight (or worsted weight yarn) is probably the best yarn to learn to crochet with. Any smaller and you'll be dealing with smaller crochet hooks and much more intricate stitches and any larger and you might be overwhelmed by the sheer size.

Worsted weight yarn is the most common and most popular weight yarn, and you can find any type of project for the yarn weight. Check out Types of Yarn and Yarn Weights for everything you need to know.

What do I need to buy to crochet?
To learn to crochet, you need to buy a skein of yarn (as mentioned above, stick with worsted weight for starters, so you can practice), and a crochet hook. On every yarn label, you'll see a suggested hook size, so make sure you get something that matches.

If you need help with hook sizes, see our page on choosing the right hook size for more information. 

Learn to Crochet for Beginners

First, learn how to crochet a chain stitch, then move onto the rest of these tutorials in order to learn crochet.

The foundation for any crochet project, from scarves and hats to blankets and sweaters, is a good grasp on your crochet stitches. There are so many different types of stitches out there, and they range from quick and simple to more involved and decorative, but the basics are all the same.

Ultimately, you're still just inserting your hook through the top of a stitch, yarning over and grabbing some yarn, and pulling your hook through other loops - the difference is in the number of times you do each thing.

How to Filet Crochet

Besides knowing your crochet stitches, you'll need to know some other fundamentals. Unless you're fine with making projects in all one color, you'll want to know how to change colors as you crochet and how to join yarn.

For hats, you might want to make sure you know how to work in the round or how to start with a magic circle. We even have some basic video tutorials on choosing the best crochet hook for your work and using stitch markers to track your progress.
