This is a quick video I made with some tips about crochet and knit pattern skill levels. One of the big things many people don’t know is that the style of the pattern writing affects the skill level listed on the pattern. Skill level isn’t just the skill you need to crochet the item; it’s also the skill you need to follow the pattern!



The list of skill levels used by many patterns are listed on the Craft Yarn Council site. Other magazines and patterns break things down even further.
