This quick tutorial will walk you through two of the most basic stitches in crochet - the Chain Stitch (ch) and Single Crochet (sc) You will also learn the best way for finishing off any project.
Once you have mastered these stitches you will have the foundation you need to make a huge variety of projects starting with this simple washcloth.
Notes for Beginners: Choose a yarn which is a light to medium shade. Dark colours make it difficult to see stitches.
Be sure to count stitches in each row: As a beginner it is incredibly easy to add or drop stitches especially at the beginning or end of rows. BONUS I will teach you how easy it is to fix your project should you pick up and extra or drop a stitch.
Keep tension loose: Even though no specific gauge is required for this project keeping a relaxed hand will keep your stitches easy to work with opposed to pulling them too tight and making it a struggle to insert the crochet hook.
Use Acrylic Yarn and Non Tapered Crochet Hook: This last point is really preference. Although washcloths are normally made from cotton they also turn out great in acrylic. It is also nice too to have yarn you can use for additional project and acrylic is great for cup cozies, hats and scarves as well.
If possible use a straight or non-tapered crochet hook I find much easier to use than a tapered allowing for a smoother motion.
