Can i crochet a wallet as a beginner?
Many beginner can crochet a tote bag, what more a simple crochet wallet? A crochet scarf is more complex with its long chain that a crochet bag or crochet wallet/ purse is. So yes! As a beginner, you can crochet a wallet.
Plus, many of the patterns use worsted weight and bulky yarn, so they’ll work up relatively quickly.
Types of crochet wallets suitable for beginners
There are a few things to look for when choosing a crochet wallet pattern as a beginner.
First, choose a pattern that uses basic crochet stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet stitches.
Read through the pattern, and see if there is a recommended skill level listed near the top.
Get an idea of what stitches you will use, what type of seaming will be involved, and whether you need to know any special techniques.
Second, look for patterns made of basic rectangles or other simple shapes. You may want to avoid designs that utilise complex shaping techniques and fancy colorwork – at least for your first crochet wallet project.
Likewise, avoid patterns that call for very lightweight or otherwise difficult yarns.
Additionally, look for a well-tested pattern with detailed instructions. Video tutorials can be especially helpful for beginners, too. Good thing is most of the patterns i am sharing come with a video tutorial.
Supplies for Crocheting Wallet
Here’s what you’ll need to crochet a wallet.
Your wallet pattern will give you instructions for the correct yarn weight, and often recommend a specific yarn. For your convenience, I am going to give you my personal yarn preferences.
You can substitute yarns, but make sure to choose one that is a similar weight and fiber content. This will help you achieve the correct gauge, and ensure that your wallethas a similar drape to the one in the pattern photos.
Remember, whether you use the recommended yarn or not, it’s crucial to make a gauge swatch to make sure you’re on the right track.
How much yarn will you need? Depending on the size of your wallet you want to make, or how many wallets you are making, the size will vary.
For small- medium sized wallets, one skein of yarn will be more than enough. Don’t worry; your pattern will let you know how much is necessary. Check out this Caron yarn or Lion brand yarn.
You’ll also need a crochet hook in the appropriate size. Again, your pattern will give you these details. Then, make a gauge swatch. After making your swatch, you’ll know whether you need to size up or down.
And, if you’re using a different yarn than the one specified in the pattern, you may need to adjust your hook size to meet the gauge.
In addition to yarn and a crochet hook, you’ll need a few other supplies before you get started on your new wallet/purse.
- Tape measure. A tape measure or ruler will help you take your gauge, check your finished dimensions, and make sure that your wallet is the right size.
- Stitch markers will come in handy for marking your place as you work, especially if you’re working on a larger project.
- Scissors to cut your yarn.
- A tapestry needle is necessary to weave in ends and seam your finished wallet together.
