Crochet is a way of making an article or project from yarn or crochet thread by using a crochet hook. The word ‘crochet’ actually means ‘hook’. The crochet hooks used in projects are designed in a way that they have a hook at one end of the needle to hold the yarn and then pulls the yarn through the loops it makes. To make it easier, you work with only one loop at a time. There are many simple easy crochet patterns for items to make by crocheting that are made with ease provided you learn the basic stitches and knowing the use of those stitches.

The simple stitches that one needs to know to work any crochet design from any simple easy crochet pattern are:

1. Single Crochet: the hook is made to go in through the second chain stitch to get two loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn around the hook and pull through all the other three loops at the same time.

2. Double Crochet: the yarn is wrapped around the hook. Put inside of the hook through the stitch. Wrap the yarn around the hook and pull in from the two loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn around the hook once more and pick in the other loops on the hook.

3. Treble Crochet: this is a rather long stitch comparatively to the double stitch. The yarn is wrapped around the hook twice before you pass it through the next stitch. The rest is same as double stitch, pulling in across two loops for every stitch.
