The Learn to Crochet Series

If you’ve never picked up a hook before, and don’t quite know where to start, the Learn to Crochet Series is designed just for you. This series of tutorials goes 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.

A new video will be released approximately once a week, until the series is completed. You can find the entire Learn to Crochet series here, and as new videos come out, they will be added to that page. Next week, I’ll show you how to finish your swatch by working a border around the edges.
