Learn To Crochet:

If you want to learn how to crochet, I am going to save you a ton of google browsing time! When I started crocheting a couple months ago I spent hours and hours googling and reading tutorials/watching videos. Some were good, some were useless. So to save you time, here is my A-list of the best tutorials and videos for beginning crocheting.

Video: The basics. What yarn? What hook size? And the basic chain stitch tutorial, which is the foundation stitch for every crochet project you will start.

Video: How to: Single Crochet, Half Double Crochet, Double Crochet, Triple Crochet, Slip Stitch, Crochet in the round.

Video and written instructions on how to do the Single Crochet stitch

Video: The Half Double crochet stitch

Written instructions for all the basic stitches you should know: Single Crochet, Half Double Crochet, Double Crochet, Triple Crochet, Slip Stitch

Understanding the different weights of yarn.

How to read the label on your yarn.

Yarn Label Symbols and what they mean.

Learn about the different hook Sizes.


I hope these links help you and will cut down on the amount of time you search for easy to understand Crochet instruction. If you have any other links with clear, easy to read/view tutorials, let me know. I may want to add them to this list.

Projects: I am currently working on a small Christmas stocking. My plan is to make several for Christmas present toppers. I’ll post more about that soon.

Lots of exes and ohs,
