“Three stitch patterns using only single crochet.”

One simple little stitch—single crochet—can look so very different with just a few minor tweaks. The different textures come from the way the hook is inserted into the stitch in the row below--we’ll show you how in this First Projects pattern. Three little must-have accessories explore this phenomenon. Make one pair. Or make all three!

TUTORIALS IN THIS PATTERN: • Three stitch patterns using only single crochet. • Slip stitch seaming.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: chain stitch, single crochet, slip stitch, and keeping row edges straight. Need help with any of these techniques? See our Learn-To-Crochet Companion booklet.

Our First Projects patterns are intended for newer crocheters wanting to get a solid understanding of the basics. Each pattern is a “twosie” -- two projects in one (or three, in this case), and includes more photo tutorials for the techniques particular to those projects. While simple, these projects create accessories that even advanced crocheters will want to wear. Beginners (and those who want to coach new crocheters) should refer to the Churchmouse Classroom Learn-To-Crochet Companion, an instructional booklet found at many Local Yarn Shops and online at
