At long last, I’ve decided to make Skill Level definitions and put Skill Levels on my patterns. I’m not a big fan of Skill Levels. I don’t like to scare people off, but it was requested so many times so I’m adding them.
Always take a skill level designation with a grain of salt. Don’t let it scare you and don’t let it throw you off a pattern. I feel like most patterns can be accomplished but some require a lot more patience and concentration than others.
In the crochet industry, several things go straight to intermediate and I have never agreed with that either. Take, for instance, Tunisian crochet. It couldn’t be easier. I even suggest teaching it to kids first because the repetition works better for them.
Why is a heavily charted single crochet graph blanket rated as easy? I know that it’s all single crochet, but, in all seriousness, working with all those color changes and bobbins and yarn tangles should really give a pattern like that a higher skill level.
I’ve put a lot of thought into my skill levels and I hope that it’s helpful for you.
My Skill Level Definitions can be found HERE (or click the navigation menu at the top of my page as shown in the photo).
I hope it makes navigation easier for you.
