Basic Crochet Granny Square – This crochet square is quite simple. It’s also easy for an experienced crocheter to teach a beginner from this pattern. I suggest crocheting right alongside the beginner and since this pattern is easy to understand, you’ll be able to pause and help if you need to. Using three colors, this square turns out very cute.
Quick and Simple Afghan – Seriously, this is the easiest pattern I’ve ever seen. It’s literally 2 steps. You need eight skeins of yarn and a jumbo plastic crochet hook. Teaching a beginner on a jumbo hook is fun and not as frustrating. There are lots of variations you can do to this pattern to spruce it up – add a ribbon, add some fringe, customize the size etc. A very versatile and fun pattern for sure.
