1) Rapunzel's Braided Scarf by Once Upon a Cheerio

This was the very first crochet pattern that I've ever published on this blog. While it may not be completely beginner since you have to learn how to do the foundation half double crochet, the construction of this rapunzel scarf is so simple, the braid detail will seriously seem like magic!

2) Simple Scarf by Carroway Crochet

This beautiful chunky infinity scarf is the definition of cozy. Just the way it drapes around your neck, it will keep you warm in -30 degrees Celsius weather! (I'm Canadian, that's why I use Celsius). 

3) Farmhouse Dishcloth by Sunflower Cottage Crochet

I never really understood the point of spending so much time crocheting and making something so beautiful but then using it for washing dirty dishes. However, if you're a beginner and looking for a project to practice your stitches with, crochet dishcloths can be just what you're looking for.

4) Fish Amigurumi by Loops and Love Crochet

If you are looking at trying your hand at amigurumi, this amigurumi fish might be just what you're looking for. Simple amigurumi patterns allow you to practice making the magic ring and single crocheting in a spiral. Both of these are key techniques for any amigurumi you will be making in the future.

5) Barista Mug Cozy by Crochets by Trista

Small projects like coffee cozies make for a great teacher's gift. They're small projects that you can practice your stitches with and are quick to make. They are also great for inventory fillers if you have any craft fairs happening in the near future.

6) Crochet Infinity Scarf by Itchin for Some Stitchin

This simple yet elegant crochet infinity scarf uses the granny stitch. I've never really used this stitch before However, the way that the stitch is used in this crochet pattern gives the illusion that the infinity scarf is a checkered pattern, which is actually really cool.

7) Cotton Washcloth by Simply Melanie Jane

Look at these beautiful washcloths. Personally, I don't know how anyone can put something as beautiful as this into a pool of water and dirty dishes, but... to each their own. Again, dishcloths make for a great small project to practice your stitches with, but I would probably end up using them as pot holders rather than washcloths.

8) Cool Everyday Scarf by Pam's Cozy Corner

The name of this scarf says it all. It's really cool. Layers of this crochet scarf make it look so cozy but the stitches and complexity of it look very cool at the same time! The pattern is rated at an intermediate level, but it's still doable if you want to give it a try!
