When you're working up a knitting or crochet pattern from Darn Good Yarn, you'll see a symbol (either a crochet hook or pair of knitting needles) in the top corner of the pattern; these symbols indicate the difficulty level of that pattern. Each pattern will match 1 of 4 difficulty levels: Basic, Easy, Intermediate, or Complex. Our images are broken out into four sections, each shaded section corresponds with the difficulty level.
In order to better help you understand the difficulty level of each pattern, we've created the super awesome chart above. The chart features each symbol and a brief explanation of what patterns at each level include (and do not include).
We hope that this chart helps you understand the skill level and knowledge required to complete each of our patterns. Don't be afraid to challenge yourself with a pattern that might be above your current skill level, or to start learning the techniques necessary for more difficult patterns!
Happy Crafting! If you're looking for a new pattern or kit for your next fiber art project -
