Beginner Crochet Projects

The Crocheting journey continued….

Project 3

Jelly fish keychain

This project required me to learn the magic circle. Very beautifully explained by this YouTuber.

I followed this YouTube video for making this jelly fish keychain.

Time required: 1 hour.

Level: Beginner

I filled it with dried and cut wet wipes because i didn’t have the polly fill.

Very easy amigurumi project.

Project 4

I really loved making this project because it is for my favorite niece A.

She loves reading books and writes her book reviews here.

So, i made 2 bookmarks for her.

First is a sheep amigurumi bookmark (Hope it looks like a sheep ;P)

Tutorial taken from here

Time required: This project was completed in a span of 3 days because I was not getting much time.

Level: Easy | Beginner

Hook used: 3mm, cotton yarn in red and cream yellow colour.

Project 5

One more bookmark for my love A.

This book’s review is here

Tutorial taken from here and here.

Time required: 2 hours

Hook used : 3mm

Cotton and polyester mix yarn in green and purple.

My next project is a Scarf and it is taking quiet a lot of time but a very easy one.

My first few projects in Crochet

I learnt crochet in school but reluctantly, because it was required as a part of my curriculum. This time, i am learning it because i really want to 😀

I will be chronicling my crochet journey here with time stamps so that anyone having an iota of interest in crocheting can see the difference from 0 to hopefully-an-expert-chrocheter-someday.

Project 1-

It was a flower. I made and remade and remade.

It took me an hour for just this one blue flower and then i made 2 more after i got an idea. Made on 8/5/2020

Tutorial taken from here and here.

Hook used was a 3mm and cotton yarn.

Project 2

It was simple headband for my 2 year old ZO.

Sadly, she didn’t like it so i opened the stitches and rolled it back

Tutorial taken from here.

This was a very simple and good project to make for a beginner.

The results are visible very fast.

Hook used 3 mm, cotton yarn and time taken was 2-3 hours in 2 days. Made on 11/5/2020

Lesson learnt: Always keep counting the stitches else the headband will be narrow at some places and wide at some 😛
