If you're feeling stuck because you don't know how to read crochet patterns, this comprehensive ebook will teach you everything you need to know to take the next step.

If you're a beginning crocheter who knows the basic stitches, this ebook is for you!

*I have a knitting version of this ebook too:

When learning how to read crochet patterns, most people’s journey looks similar.

1. You learn to crochet.
2. You start creating simple size-less items like blankets and scarves.
3. You take the dive to crochet patterns.

The problem is, that leap from step 2 to step 3 is big. Crochet patterns use weird jargon, shorthand, and reference things like gauge that you may not have ever dealt with before.

This is why I created this ebook, How to Read Crochet Patterns.

If you know basic crochet stitches, but struggle with all the other stuff, then this ebook is a must-have!

What will you learn?
- Which yarn, hooks, and tools you need (including how to use a different yarn and still have it turn out the right size!)
- Stitch repeats, ease, and how sizes are noted
- Why you need a gauge swatch, and how to make and measure one (along with what to do if it doesn’t match the pattern!)
- Special stitches and repeated patterns
- How to read line-by-line instructions (broken down using examples from real-life patterns!)
- Assembly and finishing touches
- The 3 ways to block your project (including which is the fastest and which is the safest!)
- And tons more tips and tricks!

What's Inside?
- Digital Download PDF
- 40+ pages of information
- Free set of printable yarn jargon cheat sheets
- Coupon code for a free PDF pattern of your choice to get you started on your pattern-making journey

From materials to sizing, blocking your project, and deciphering all those little notes and abbreviations, this ebook will quickly bring you up to speed so you can feel confident in your pattern-reading skills. This ebook is packed full of all the useful tips I wish I had known before I started using crochet patterns. Learn from me and skip all those trial and error moments and wasted projects. You don’t have to learn that way!

This ebook would make a wonderful gift for someone who is getting started with crochet. Gift it with some yarn and hooks, and they'll get a useful and fun gift for their new hobby!

GREAT beginner and scrap yarn pattern! I love that you can just make squares as you have scrap yarn then work up the blanket when you have a good size stash. I joined a few squares together and made a foot pocket for my throw.

The only thing I didn’t like is there is too much of a point at the top. Hoping blocking will help

Haven't sstarted it yet, as soon as I do I'll email you. I love the pattern it is easy to read. I'll have to change crochet stitches to knit hopefully the cardigan will still be as beautiful as when crochet. Beverly

I love these patterns! While they may be dishclothes, I plan to make afghan squareso them. The dishclothes I did make have already been used and do the job well. Thanks for the great patterns.
