If you’ve been following along with previous lessons, by now you should have a roughly square swatch / small washcloth. We worked 2 rows each of single, double, and half double crochet, then repeated all 6 rows to make a square. In lesson 6, make a single crochet edging all the way around your square, and join it with a slip stitch. For a much more detailed discussion of edgings, check out my 6 part edging series.
Most of my regular readers are already accomplished crocheters. If any of you know someone who might want to learn, please pass this along!
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 fasten off your yarn and weave in the ends. I’ll also talk a little bit about blocking.
