A quick and easy crochet for kids!

Howdy friends! Tonight I am going to share a project I taught to my children’s knit and crochet class. All you need to know is how to chain, making it the perfect beginner project. This is a great way to use up scrap yarn too!

DCF 1.0

You will need 3 colors of yarn about 6′ each, a large 4 holed button, a tiny crochet hook that will fit through a button hole and a medium crochet hook such as a US size G.

DCF 1.0

Start with one piece of yarn and use the tiny crochet hook to pull the yarn through 2 buttonholes and make the ends even. Make a slip knot close to the button with one string and chain until you run out of yarn, do the same for the other side, just be sure to keep the slip knot as close as you can to the button. Repeat with the other 2 colors and you should have 6 strands of chain stitch crochet hanging from the button. Divide the strands into 3 groups by color and braid.

Now make 2 knots: one to end the braid and one to form the toggle and you are done! These make cute Christmas presents and kids can use this technique to make bracelets, necklaces and belts for their dolls too! Happy crafting!
