All You Need is Crochet

Crochet Stitches Everyone Needs

Are you looking for crochet stitches? Because if you have, you’ve come to the right place. At Pretty In Crochet, I’ve created a series called Crochet for Beginners to teach others this wonderful craft. I publish a new tutorial every Sunday.

Here is my list of crochet stitches. It will grow as my Crochet for Beginners series grows. I didn’t want anyone to miss out on the chance to start crocheting and thought an organized list would be helpful. I start with basics because you can’t crochet without them. These are stitches I started with as a twelve year old and still use all the time. I just use them more creatively nowadays 🙂
