SKILL 2 – EASY
Projects using yarn with basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple colour changes, and simple shaping and finishing.
Now that you’ve mastered basic crochet stitches you can finish simple crochet items and start shaping them with basic increase and decrease stitches. You know how to change a colour and how to attach a new ball of yarn. Since basic crochet stitches are not a problem anymore you can put them together in repetitive patterns making beautiful fibre textures.

- When you crochet in closed rounds, you will close each round with a slip stitch into the first stitch of the round. The next round starts with one or more initial chain stitches (know as the “turning chains”) to get the right height for the following stitches and follows the same direction as the previous round.
