    One simple little stitch—single crochet—can look so very different with just a few minor tweaks. The different textures come from the way the hook is inserted into the stitch in the row below and Churchmouse will show you how in this First Projects pattern. Three little must-have accessories explore this phenomenon. Make one pair. Or make all three!

    SKILLS USED: chain stitch, single crochet, slip stitch, and keeping row edges straight

    Churchmouse's First Projects patterns are intended for newer crocheters wanting to get a solid understanding of the basics. Each pattern is a “twosie” — two projects in one (or three, in this case), and includes more photo tutorials for the techniques particular to those projects. While simple, these projects create accessories that even advanced crocheters will want to wear. Beginners (and those who want to coach new crocheters) should refer to the Churchmouse Classroom Learn-To-Crochet Companion, an instructional booklet found at many Local Yarn Shops and online at churchmouseyarns.com.
