In fact, it's one of the best patterns ever when it comes to getting creative whatever yarns you have on hand. Once you explore our four simple variations below, we bet you'll end up inventing your own. Have fun!

The best thing about learning to crochet? All stitches essentially build off what you've already learned. Once you've mastered the basic, must-know stitches (such as chain stitches and single crochets), you've got a solid foundation.

The larksfoot stitch pattern has been popping up in all sorts of patterns lately, and that's no surprise. I mean, just look at it! Use bright, contrasting colors in a yarn that is a DK-weight or heavier to make the biggest splash. Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy to do. Grab some spare yarn and a hook and work up this small swatch. But be warned — it's addictive!
