Very Easy Crochet Pattern Tutorial

Easy, as in you repeat the same row over and over. I made a little dish cloth here, but I think that this would make a lovely spring/summer baby blanket done up wider, in soft yarn.

Here's how:

Chain an even number of chains--I did 20 here. Remember that the chain on the hook does not count as a stitch, so don't count it!

ROW ONE: Now, count over four chains from the hook, and make 2 double crochets in this fourth chain.

Skip the next chain.
Make 2 double crochets in the next chain.

Do this across--skip one, 2 double crochets in the next. See the V-stitches?

When you get to the end, where you'll have 2 chains left, skip one and do one double crochet in last chain.

ROW TWO: Chain 3, turn.

Now you are going to make V-stitches in all the previous V-stitches. Just make 2 double crochets inside each previous V. Look at the picture above and you'll see what I mean.

When you get to the end, make one double crochet. You'll know you're doing it right because your sides will look straight.

All you have to do is repeat Row Two! Remember to start with a chain 3 and end with one double crochet.

This is obviously not written the way crochet patterns usually are. Sometimes I find them confusing. Actually, I prefer those weird 'charts.'

Hope  you like this little lesson and that you give it a try!
