Aside from pottery, crocheting is my favorite hobby. My yarn goes everywhere with me and I’m always making something (currently a sweater!). Today I’m sharing my favorite crochet projects, specifically for beginners who want to start crocheting.

Beginner Crochet Crop Top
For The Frills is one of my favorite crochet bloggers, so you’ll see a few of her patterns in today’s post. This is a great top for beginner crocheters who want a fun summer top. The pattern uses only half double crochets and can fit any body type. There are even alteration instructions if you want to make this a longer top or a more loose fitting top.
The Summer Tote
This summer tote takes just a few hours to complete and mainly uses a two row repeat. I love how simple yet elevated this tote looks.
Back To Basic Tee
This back to basic tee uses basic crochet stitches and uses two pieces of rectangles that are joined together. If you haven’t crocheted a t-shirt yet, this is the pattern for you.
Easy Crochet Cardigan
This cardigan is oversized and even includes pockets. If you’ve been wanting to make a cardigan, this is the perfect pattern to start with! I love how cozy and comfortable it is.
This summer cardigan uses triple crochet stitches and a unique crochet shell stitch that adds beautiful detailing.
Beginner Boho Coasters
These boho coasters are cute and even have a matching placemat pattern.
March Market Bag
This cute market bag can be used to hold groceries, flowers, yarn, or whatever else you’d like. I stopped using plastic bags a long time ago and now use reusable bags, like this market bag.
Easy Everyday Beanie
This Everyday Beanie uses an easy 2 row repeat. This pattern comes in 7 sizes from baby beanie to adult with the option of pom pom or no pom pom.
Alpine Stitch Scarf
This alpine stitch scarf is great for your husband or friend. I love the color choices in this scarf and how foresty it looks.
Easy Chunky Ribbed Beanie
This chunky ribbed bean is easy to make and makes for a great Christmas gift. This hat is made into a rectangle and then stitched into a tube to create a hat.
Beanie and wrist warmers
This pattern includes a beanie and wrist warmers that makes for a great gift! The pattern uses mostly the star stitch and is simple to create.
Family of Baskets
Baskets are practical and great for organization and they happen to be one of the very first things I crocheted.
