Skill Level Descriptions
These skill levels posted are basically guidelines to help you judge the difficulty level in working any of our patterns. Don’t let the difficultly level deter you from trying any crochet pattern. By stretching yourself, you’ll not only learn new stitches and improve your skills, but the success of achieving something you’ll love to use, wear, or give as a gift! As with all our patterns, online support is available.
Thank you to Rebeckah’s Treasures for the inspiration and base for placing skill levels on the Crochet Memories Blog!
Skill levels are set by the Yarn Council.
For Crochet Memories, we use balls of thread to indicate skill level. The more balls of thread, the higher the skill level we feel is appropriate to work our patterns with ease.
Beginner: If you’re new to crochet, these projects are a great place to start! These patterns use only basic stitches with minimal shaping.
Easy: If you’re looking for a relaxing project, this is what you want! These patterns are very repetitive. They use basic stitches and easy procedures.
Intermediate: If you’re looking for something new to try, these projects are just for you! These patterns use a variety of crochet techniques and stitch combinations. These patterns will offer more detail and concentration along with advanced shaping and stitching.
Experienced: If you’re looking for something more intricate, then try your hand with one of these projects! Patterns will be more detailed, intricate or require a knowledge in how they are worked; such as filet patterns. Some projects will need molding or sculpting. Advanced stitching is used, color changes etc.
