3 Easy Tips For Any Crochet Project

This post contains an affiliate link to a Baby Crochet Pattern Bundle hosted by Nicole Riley and supported by Furls Crochet

Nothing makes me happier than a giggling baby. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen pictures of my trip to Denver to spend time with my youngest daughter and my youngest grand, Samuel. His squish face smile lights up the room and makes my heart beam with joy.

Today I’m bringing you 3 simple tips for any crochet project. Ready?


1. Read the pattern’s “What You Need” section thoroughly. The last thing you want is to be caught short on yarn or not have everything you need to complete your project.

2. Make sure you have enough of the correct yarn weight in the same dye lot. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve underestimated my yarn calculations only to buy more “of the same color” only to have a mismatch on the dye lot. Yes, there are different shades of cream (and grey…LOL)

3. Make sure you have the right hook size for your project. Between your yarn and your hook you’re going to create a gauge swatch to meet the gauge (or come really close) in the pattern notes. 

Bonus tip: Make a gauge swatch. Why is meeting gauge important? Sizing…let me count the ways gauge is so important. I can tell you stories upon stories about how I’ve skipped making a gauge swatch only to have sleeves too long or beanies that wouldn’t fit a doll let alone a baby. I’ve frogged countless projects all because my ego said “hey lady…you’ve been crocheting since the dawn of time. You don’t need to do a gauge swatch…” UGH. Sigh. Ego schmeego. 

I hope you find this easy tips helpful! Let me know by leaving a comment if you’ve got any questions about a crochet project your working on!

Happy Hooking,
