How to Crochet: 9 Easy Crochet Projects for Kids

Crocheted Heart Wall HangingDon’t believe anyone if they tell you crocheting isn’t cool! Take it from me; as a yarn skeptic, I wasn’t convinced that I could ever enjoy crochet. Recently, though, I was proved wrong.

In our office, we took a class together so we could learn how to crochet. I thought I would struggle through the class, since I tend to mess up any kind of craft that involves weaving, sewing, embroidery…really anything that doesn’t involve paint or clay. But to my surprise, I made the starting chain with ease, and quickly picked up on the basic crochet stitch we’d be using to make our dish cloths. In minutes, I was crocheting faster than the speed of light!

Okay, I might be exaggerating a little. But watching my hands create something I never thought I could do was just so exciting. I caught myself daydreaming about improving my skills to the point where I could make all of my Christmas gifts from crochet projects.

Learning to crochet is easier than you might think. After all, if I had a blast accomplishing a simple little dish cloth, just imagine how much fun you’ll have trying the easy crochet projects on this list. These beginner crochet patterns are the perfect way to get kids hooked on crochet. You might just have a crochet expert in your house before you know it!
