Sometimes it’s difficult to get going with crocheting, because practicing stitches for their own sake is, frankly, boring, but useful projects for beginners are not actually that plentiful.
Fast and Easy Blanket Free Crochet Pattern
This Fast and Easy Blanket fixes this. As projects go, blankets are always useful and serve both decorative and functional roles. This particular project is made using just a few basic stitches and picot edging to yield a fantabulous, rich texture and an attractive shimmer. This is a great project to get the beginner “hooked” and encouraged to reach for ever more complex projects. A link to free patterns is under the photos.

One Skein Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern
Another such pattern is One Skein Baby Blanket. This one is slightly different in that the finished blanket is lighter and makes greater use of voids, but both are a great step forward for a beginning crocheter.
