Creating a crochet capital letter “A” is a fun way to add a personal touch to your crochet projects. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial to help you crochet a capital letter “A”:

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your preferred color
  • Crochet hook suitable for your yarn (usually 4.0mm to 5.5mm)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends


  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • st(s): stitch(es)


Step 1: Create the Foundation Chain

  1. Start by making a foundation chain. The number of chains you’ll need will depend on the size of the “A” you want to create. For a standard size letter, you can chain 8.

Step 2: Work on the Vertical Line of the “A”

  1. Row 1: Starting in the second chain from the hook, sc in each ch across. (7 sc)
  2. Rows 2-8: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each sc across. (7 sc)

Step 3: Create the Horizontal Crossbar of the “A”

  1. Row 9: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 3 sc. This forms the left side of the crossbar.
  2. Rows 10-12: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each sc across. (3 sc)

Step 4: Shape the Top of the “A”

  1. Row 13: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first sc. Hdc in the next sc. Dc in the last sc. (3 sts)
  2. Rows 14-15: Ch 1, turn. Sc in each st across. (3 sts)

Step 5: Finish the “A”

  1. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.

Your crochet capital letter “A” is complete! You can use this letter as an appliqué to embellish other crochet projects like blankets, scarves, or bags. You can also create the entire alphabet in this way to make personalized banners, decorations, or gifts. Experiment with different yarn colors to make your letters stand out. Enjoy your crocheting!
