I have never crochet anything in my life and I just need a step by step to show me how to do it thank you

I love your website and your patterns! However, I'm a bit confused by the page that is listed as "Easy Crochet Blanket Patterns for Beginners". When I opened several of the patterns listed under this category, most were categorized as "Easy", and some were even "Intermediate" (i.e., #54, Cute Crochet Bug Blanket). I'm not quite sure why they are included in patterns for beginners? thank you!

Even though I have been crocheting for around 50 years( gosh I am old ) I still like to relax with an easy pattern once in awhile.i find I can take almost any easy simple pattern and add embellishments like buttons and people think it is the fanciest thing and I must have worked hard on it. I never say just how easy it was using these timeless stitches.

I love favecrafts very good.

i love your website

I am confused with CH-1sp or CH-3sp. It refers to doing a stitch in the next chain or space ... the CH-3sp ... does it mean do the same stitch in the next 3 spaces?? Thanks,

i love all your patterns thanks so much

I love your site. I am fairly new, but I have already downloaded enough files to keep me busy for the next 5-6 months. Thanks very much

Hi Happyvedra--Thanks so much for the comment, and we're so glad you like the site! We'd love to see your creations as you make them! Feel free to upload them to our site using our image uploader or share them with us on Facebook. Thanks again and have a great day!--FaveCrafts Editor

Love your site, great patterns & very helpful when you categorize them according to " beginner, quick & etc." Have made my own book also by printing off those that I want to start, and write my own little hints on those I have made. Thank You & Happy Holidays to all crafters!! Joyce H. Kansas

Have enjoyed getting patterns from you site. Can't decide which one to start on first. I have just started a crochet class at the local Senior Center. I am really enjoying it after about 50 years of not crocheting. Thanks so very much., It is like starting ov er again. I had the hardest time learning how to hold the thread but after checking people 's different ways, I finally found the one that I used many years ago. Liz from Florence, Sc

How is a beginner supposed to understand all the lingo????????????????

You need to get a book on how to crochet and look up each crochet stitch as your pattern calls for. Keep each afghan simple until you get the idea of instructions. I see there are some tutorials here on internet that may help you. Like learning music, it is practice, practice, practice. You will have to to make yourself a little chart to keep handy as what sc, dc, dbc, etc. means. Recipe card works fine. Even my 7 year old great granddaughter is learning to crochet.

Here is a link to a glossary of crochet abbreviation of stitches-

Do you have a super simple pineapple pattern? I've tried making the pineapple pattern a dozen times and for some reason, I just cannot figure it out. Would appreciate your help. Thank you. Karla

I have taken the patterns I've printed up, 3 hole punching, and making my own "I can Crochet and Patterns to Patterns with pictures to Prove it" book. Starting in a few days I will begin my Christmas gifts. A Granny Square blanket for my daughter, and guy's blanket in the colors of the Blackhawks of Chicago, and one in the colors of the Giants or 49'ers. I love this sight, and will continue to visit often.

Niners!!!!!!! in Jesus Name, Amen. Whoo-whoooo; Will try this, thanks for ideas.

Thank you so much for all the lovely free patterns !! This is my favourite site, as I've taught myself to crochet from here.....and have used lots of your patterns to make lovely things for my new little grandaughter, and for christmas presents !! Although I'm still a beginner, I enjoy learning the new stitches, and I'm a lot more confident now than I was last June when I started my first project - a lovely headband for the our beautiful new arrival ! Thank you so much xx

Hello, I really love somewhere you can go for help and it there. thanks for this site

I really love crochet even though I am a beginner. This site is very helpful to me. Just yesterday I could only do single stitch and obviously chain stitch. Now thanks to this site (and a different one that i don't want to share the name to) I can do the double and triple stitch too. With the help of these two sites i will be an expert at crocheting in no time at all. This site is one of the best sites for crocheting that I've ever heard of.

I love this site. I am new to crochet but your site is helping me so much. I recommend it to anyone who talks about crochet. Thank you
