Perfect for new knitters and crocheters, these projects use basic stitches and minimal shaping.

These projects use basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes, and simple shaping and finishing. Its easy!

These projects use a variety of techniques, such as basic lace patterns or mid-level shaping. Great for learning new skills.

For more experienced stitchers, these projects feature intricate stitch patterns, more advanced techniques, or detailed shaping. Do you like a challenge?

SKILL LEVELS

Gauge is the number of stitches (and spaces) per inch and the number of rows (or rounds) per inch. Your gauge and the gauge listed at the beginning of the pattern should be the same so that your project will finish to the correct size and so you will not run out of yarn.

Before starting your pattern, check your gauge! Using the same yarn, hook or needle and pattern stitch specified in the instructions, make a swatch that is approximately 6 square.

Using pins, mark off a section of stitches in the center of the swatch that measures 4 square. Count the number of stitches and rows in this 4 section. If they match the gauge, you can start right in on your pattern.

If you have too few stitches, you are working too looselychange to a smaller hook or needle size and make another swatch. If you have too many stitches, you are working too tightlychange to a larger hook or needle size and make another swatch.
