Learn to Crochet – Lesson 1 – Choosing Your Materials

Do you want to learn to crochet?

If you’ve never picked up a hook before, and don’t quite know where to start….start here! Crochet is a passion of mine that I particularly love to share with others. So I’ve created a Learn to Crochet series for brand new crocheters. These short tutorials will walk you through how to get started, and some of the most basic stitches and techniques. By the end of the series, you’ll be ready to test your skills with some beginner patterns.

In this first video, you’ll learn some basic things to look for when choosing your yarn and hook. New videos will come out approximately once a week until the series is completed. This means you’ll have plenty of time to get to the store and pick up what you need before the next one comes out. Next week, I’ll show you how to start a project with a foundation chain.



Just like any other skill, learning crochet takes practice. Soon though, you’ll be making all sorts of things with nothing more than a ball of yarn and a hook. It’s kind of like a super power!

I know most of my regular readers are already accomplished crocheters. If any of you know someone who might want to learn, please pass this along!
