How do you read a crochet pattern?

How do you read a crochet pattern? I’m on a mission to teach you just that! I’ll show you how, step by step. I’m making a whole series of videos where I will walk you through a small crochet pattern one step at a time, tell you what it means, and show you how to do it. Each video uses a very short crochet project. Watch each one, follow along, and then transfer those skills to larger projects!

In this video I am showing you how to read the written crochet pattern for a very small circle that is part of my Gardens Galore Garland free crochet pattern, shown below. This garland is perfect for decorating your patio, mantle piece, a bedroom wall, or any space you like. Make it in colors to match your decor. You can get the written pattern right here. We are doing that little purple circle in the center of the coral flower. I’ve already done videos to teach how to read the pattern for the tiny heart and the small ring in this garland pattern.
