I’ve been learning to crochet this weekend – inspired by friends, and also by looking at all the amazing craft blogs online. If you fancy giving it a go, you may want to check out these great beginners tutorials. I found these very clear and helpful videos by a lady called Beth, whose crochet website you can find here. It’s really worth following the videos carefully, step by step and in order – and if Beth tells you to practise 7 rows then do it!
The first video covers how to hold the hook, how to hold the yarn to get the right tension and how to make a slip knot. At first I found holding the yarn the trickiest bit – it just goes all baggy and slips off. Hmmm, well I need to practise..
The second video explains how to make the chain stitch – the foundation of crochet.
Next, in two parts, is how to make the single crochet stitch, and begin a scarf sampler to practice on.
