Project Difficulty Levels

Wondering if one of our patterns is right for you? Well, we’ve put together a handy chart that will help you determine the difficulty level of each of our patterns!

Difficulty Chart

These levels have been determined by the Craft Yarn Council. You can find their knitting and crochet skill level charts here, but we’ve written out the information below.

Beginner
  • Projects for first-time crocheters using basic stitches. Minimal shaping.

These are absolute beginner patterns. We don’t have a whole lot of patterns available at this skill level, but that doesn’t mean we won’t in the future!

Easy
  • Projects using yarn with basic stitches, repetitive stitch patterns, simple color changes, and simple shaping and finishing.

A lot of our patterns fit between Easy and Intermediate. We try to use basic stitches and patterns in all of our crochet patterns.

Intermediate
  • Projects using a variety of techniques, such as basic lace patterns or color patterns, mid-level shaping and finishing.

We don’t do a lot of patterns with lace (or other similar things) here, but some parts of our amigurumi patterns–hair especially–can be defined as intermediate. Some of our CALs can also be defined as Intermediate due to complicated color changes.

Experienced
  • Projects with intricate stitch patterns, techniques and dimension, such as non-repeating patterns, multi-color techniques, fine threads, small hooks, detailed shaping and refined finishing.

I don’t consider myself a very advanced crocheter, so most of our patterns probably won’t ever see an Experienced skill level.


We’re still working on adding these skill level notations to our patterns, but you can count on seeing them in our future pattern releases!
